A land steeped in ancient civilizations, from east coast to west coast, Songkhla is also richly endowed with natural resources. For generations known as the Southern region's key port city, Songkhla has steadily progressed and nowadays has become a thriving province that plays a significant role in the country's economic, social and political life.

Songkhla further boasts its own distinctive traditions, languages and folk theatre that are integral to Thailand's national cultural heritage. Products for which the province is renowned include Koh Yor Hand-woven Fabric which is widely-acclaimed for its exquisite patterns.

Songkhla is also a one-stop travel center where a wide range of delightful tours and exciting leisure activities are available.
With its fast and convenient transportation, easily accessible by car, train and plane, coupled with state-ofthe-art infrastructure and communications, Songkhla is also home to the Southern Region Industrial Estate Songkhla Province (Chalung). The province is also adjacent to the Malaysian states of Kedah and Perlis and offers border crossings between the two countries at two locations: Sadao and Padang Besar. All this makes Songkhla the undisputed southern business center, as well as the venue for the most important state offices and financial institutions. It is also home to the region's major state and private academic institutes, not least Prince of Songkla University Ė the biggest university in southern Thailand.

The net result of all this is that Songkhla is not only important in the context of Thailand but constitutes one of the key commercial cities in all of Southeast Asia.
