Amazing Beautiful Southern Thailand

Yeah‼️SiennyLovesDrawing👩🏻 really feeling blessed😇🙏 to be exclusively invited📩📧💌 to be part of the media team👩🏻‍💻📝for Southern Peace Media Club (SPMC) of Thailand🇹🇭 in Oct😃

Guess  what❓⁉️

It’s her 1️⃣st international travel collaboration, bravo on her achievement❗️👏🏻This definitely a money can’t buy recognition to her blogging👩🏻‍💻📝 passion☺️

Still remembered🤔she departed from KL, Malaysia🇲🇾 at 9️⃣am with comfy bus🚌from Smile Vision Holidays & Khalifakota Travel (whole trip management👍🏻) approximately 8️⃣hours road trip & arrived Betong Boarding Post at 5.15pm (Thai🇹🇭local time 4.15pm).

How did she spent her time during the long journey❓⁉️

Ha…Ha…She slept😴💤comfortably with her hoodie on🙂

Collected her media tag prepared by SPMC (special thank you🙏for all great hospitality throughout this memorable media trip) when she 1️⃣st met the complete media team from Malaysia🇲🇾& Thailand🇹🇭

This media trip covers 4️⃣major provinces of Southern Thailand 🇹🇭 i.e. Yala, Narathiwat, Songkla & Pattani

SiennyLovesDrawing👩🏻is gonna sharing here about her favourite places visited

The Sea Of Mist @ Iyerweng

Yeah‼️Got a privilege to visit a new tourist spot i.e. The Sea of Mist @ Iyerweng😍

 

It is located in Than Mali village of subdistrict named Aiyoe Weng of Betong District in Yala Province 😀

Wow‼️Above sea level of 2,038m on the Gunung Silipat (Microwave Mountain)⛰

Secret sharing with you all that a skywalk🌁will be built to welcome all tourists👫👭👬

Waited for sunrise🌅& enjoyed the nice cooling🌬breeze cum awesome beautiful view of mist🌫 (Ohh…really worth her superb early waking up that morning🤩)

You will definitely snap lots of photosss📸📱, videosss📹🎥, boomerangsss📲, selfiesss 🤳, wefiesss with friends 👫👭👬

Then, enjoyed your breakfast 🍽 with the beautiful mist🌫 view nearby too

A must visit when you visit Southern Thailand 🇹🇭~ Betong district

How to get there❓⁉️

You may either engage a driver🚗🚙 to take Highway No. 410 Betong-Yala to intersection at KM33 & go along road entrance to Than Mali village, then drive up the hill⛰for about 7️⃣km

Or contact Yala Tourism & Sport Office at ☎️📞📱073-213722

There will be a new domestic airport🛬🛫in Betong too, currently still in its construction🏗in progress & estimated will be ready by July 2019😊

The world 🌎 🗺 largest Thai🇹🇭 Post📮❓⁉️ Nope, tallest to be exact


It is located at the Bell 🛎 Tower intersection of Betong. It was built in 1924 before World War II as the communication post for the Thai 🇹🇭 locals, through the radio implanted on top of the box & the below mail slot. At present, a new mailbox📮had been built in a larger size (9️⃣m tall) & is located at the City Convention Hall i.e. Sala Prachakhom & it attracts a large number of tourists who come to visit & snap photos📸

Ha…Ha…It has been erroneously given the title of the “world’s 🗺 🌎 largest” by at least some of the Thai 🇹🇭 locals here. It’s not, however, the “largest”, which was credited in 2012 by the Guinness Book of World Records to the mailbox📮at Ube City at Yamaguchi Prefecture in Japan🇯🇵, due to its capacity of 68.484 cubic meters of letters✉️ & postcards🏞. Accurately, it is the largest mailbox📮 in Thailand 🇹🇭 


Oppss….SiennyLovesDrawing👩🏻 doesn’t manage to send a postcard🏞 from here (Sigh…wasted the golden chance though…moreover she loves💗 postcardsss🏞…cry cry😭…)

The clock🕙 tower of Betong District

Mosque🕌 without nails & screws, amazing!!

It is Taloh Manoh Mosque 🕌 aka Masjid Wadil-Husen because being pioneered by Wan Husen Us-Sanavi, the author of the handwritten🖋Al-Quran📖. It located in Bacho District of Narathiwat Province

More than 300 years, it was traditionally built using old building tools e.g. hopea tree🌳 , local timber named Mai Takien with wooden bolts & pins. It consists of 2️⃣ adjacent buildings built in a mixture of local Thai 🇹🇭, Chinese (its top dome is similar to a Chinese pavilion) & Malay architectural styles.

Do enjoy a video clip 📹🎥by Dboy Studio, a media member from this trip😊

SiennyLovesDrawing & her media friends👫👭👬were on a tram 🚋 with the Thai🇹🇭police 👮🏻 escort (She felt like a superb VVIP😜😝) in discovering the city 🌇, mosques 🕌 & its Chinatown ⛩ of Pattani Province

Do enjoy the free🆓 city tour by tram🚋. There are 6️⃣ times a day i.e. 9️⃣am, 🔟am, 1️⃣1️⃣am, 1️⃣pm, 2️⃣pm & 3️⃣pm from the old city wall/ museum. Each takes about 4️⃣5️⃣mins.

Pattani Central Mosque🕌


This is 1️⃣ of the most beautiful mosque🕌 in Thailand🇹🇭 built in 1954 with 9️⃣years of construction.

Guess what❓⁉️

With its big dome in the centre, 4️⃣ surrounding small domes with minarets & a big pond right in front of the mosque, its architecture quite western style & with a similarity to the famous Taj Mahal of India🇮🇳 . Don’t you think so❓🤔

The graveyard of Lim To Khieng’s poor sister

Photo 31-10-2017, 6 29 22 PM.jpg

Hmm…Who is Lim To Khieng❓⁉️

From SiennyLovesDrawing’s 👩🏻 further reading 📖 after the trip, apparently he is one of the famous foreigner in Southern Thailand🇹🇭with a story though…🤓


It set in a small very kitsch Chinese garden with a sitting area, well looked after

This is 1️⃣ of the popular destinations for Chinese 🇨🇳 & Malaysian 🇲🇾 tourists👍🏻


His sister named Lim Ko Niao was upset😢as her brother, Lim To Khieng didn’t keep his promise to return to China🇨🇳 . Hence, she hung herself on the cashew nut tree🌲 & then being buried here by her brother😔 😞

The Pattani’s Thai🇹🇭 locals built this place as a shrine⛩to commemorate her & carved the tree 🌲where she hung herself in the shape of her figure


SiennyLovesDrawing👩🏻 has paid her respect🙏 during her visiting here

Lim To Khieng’s half built mosque 🕌❓? (aka Krue Se Mosque)

Guess what❓⁉️

It located right beside his sister’s graveyard


This mosque 🕌 is said to have been built during the reign of King Naresuan the Great (1578 – 1593)

Its most important element i.e. its large & domed roof,  however was never completed in its construction. It was reportedly because of a power struggle between the Sultan of Pattani & his brother at the time of construction😮😲


It was also once said it was being cursed by Lim Ko Niao, hence even with many attempts, construction never able to be completed😯😧

Tanjong Pauh ~ Just for its delicious yummy dried salted fish 🐟

Don’t miss your chance to visit this fishing 🎣village in Pattani & buy a tail of its famous freshly made Ikan Masin Kurau 🐟(meaning salted fish in Bahasa Melayu)

Do enjoy video clip🎥📹 by Dboy Studio where SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 & 2️⃣ other media friends were sharing their experiences

Samila Beach 🏝🏖 

Love 💕 💗 the clean beach 🏝 🏖 here

It is a must landmark for the Songkhla Mermaid 🧜‍♀️ aka Golden Mermaid 🧜‍♀️ statute & officially named as Nang Nguek Thong, whenever visiting to Songkhla Province


This bronze statue was created by Chirt Buabutr, a former director of Poh Chang School of Arts, Bangkok in 1966 at a cost of 6️⃣0️⃣k Thai baht. It actually followed the example of  the famed Little Mermaid 🧜‍♀️ statute in Copenhagen, Denmark i.e. its city’s symbol since 1913.

She observed that this statute is with flower garlands from the Thai🇹🇭 locals as they believe their prayers🙏to her were answered. It was once reported in Thailand news 🇹🇭🗞📰that it was never intended for prayers😯

Would like to share a live recording📹🎥 with SiennyLovesDrawing’s 👩🏻 short interview at NBT Yala, a Thai 🇹🇭TV channel (Note: In Bahasa Melayu, without English subtitles)

Sharing here a nice video📹🎥 recorded by the media team from Bernama News Channel (Note: In Bahasa Melayu, without English subtitles)
