Wat Phra Mahatat is the most famous temple in southern Thailand, and its image is portrayed on Thailand's 25 satang coin. Get a taste of culture and see the Nang Talung performance art, which is a specialty of the region. The shows have skilled puppeteers using shadow puppets to act out scenes from traditional Thai stories.
Visit the ancient Northern Gate and a small section of the City Wall that remains standing to this day. The original walls were first built in 1278 and enclosed more than a square kilometre of the heart of the city. Book lovers can't miss the City Museum. It's a fantastic collection of exhibits and rare books and gives a wonderful insight into the history of the local region. Head to Thalad Park, which is a great place for a bit of relaxation in an afternoon. If you're feeling adventurous, the hiking in Khao Luang National Park is spectacular. You'll find many trails that head deep into the mountain ranges and take you to impressive waterfalls, massive orchid gardens and offer a peek into the lives of the birds and animals that call the park home.

Lined with white sand and palm trees, they are a perfect oasis, where you can also enjoy little bays with mangrove forests and limestone cliffs that tower above the water. The best part is that you'll have many of these secluded beaches to yourself!
