scary sh*t in Songkhla

Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

Truck theft in Songkhla leads to gunfight and explosion

A daring move to steal five pick-up trucks in Songkhla on Wednesday led to a dramatic series of events, including a hostage-taking, two shootings, a gunfight that killed one assailant, an explosion and the safe disposal of a bomb.

Songkhla is terrible, went on holiday there for a week, left after a day.

I really enjoy songkhla, great hotel overlong the beach, great seafood restaurants, live music and not expensive.

Yep! Looks entertaining for a good holiday. Hostage taking, a few gun fights, stolen motors, with good food and beach. What more could you wish for! Oh a good firework display :)
