“Thailand’s southernmost province, in English Narathiwat means ‘the good people’s residence’ and is located about 1150 kilometres from Bangkok. The city of Narathiwat is home to an abundance of traditional culture with village-like serenity. The locals are largely fishermen and farmers, with most of them being Muslims. Narathiwat is an authentic and fascinating area with a steady flow of commerce and culture between the Thais and Malaysians.

The two small bus terminals in Narathiwat are situated on Suriyapradit Road within walking distance of the police station. From these, four daily bus services follow routes to Bangkok’s Southern terminal. In addition, buses to and from Phuket depart three times daily. There is also service to Hat Yai and over the border into Malaysia.”
