We are thinking of spending a month in Songkhla. Does anyone have information about terrorism and other risks in the area?
I would consult your own country's website for travel to this area of Thailand which is associated with violence and unrest.
The UK Foreign Office advises:
"If you are considering travel to, or through, the far southern provinces of Thailand, you should seriously reflect on whether or not your journey is absolutely necessary. If you do decide to go ahead with your trip you are advised to regularly review your own and your family’s security arrangements."
"We advise against all but essential travel to, or through, the far southern provinces of Pattani, Yala, Narathiwat and Songkhla, where there is continuing violence due to insurgency and civil unrest. On 15 March 2008, there were two bomb attacks at the CS Pattani Hotel in Pattani. Two people were killed and 15 others injured."
