Where I stayed
Luckily as the Aquarium is a major tourist attraction I easily found a tuk-tuk to take me to the guest house . . . but it's not over yet, when we get to the guest house this lovely Dutch lady runs out, tells me she is closed but says she can recommended another hotel for me to stay in. She tells the tuk-tuk driver in Thai where to take me and waves goodbye! Then two minutes later we arrive at the Narai Hotel. The Thai lady who runs the hotel showed me to a table, said sit, then she ran off and came back with a fresh coconut, with the top cut off and a straw! She said "drink drink please". Once I had finished she took the coconut and ran off, then came back with the top cut off and a spoon so I could eat the fruit inside (not like coconut back home, more like a coconut flavored peach). Then once I was finished with the coconut she check me in. I am here till Sunday, then back to Hat Yai Sunday afternoon!
Songkhla is a quiet place, not much going on, but lots of museums and things to look at.
It's also a lot hotter than the islands or the north!
