A visit to the city of Songkla, in Southern Thailand, simply wouldn’t be complete without a sampling of the area’s famous local seafood. And during the annual Songkla Seafood Festival, the cornucopia of underwater edibles attracts visitors by the thousands. Diners can feast on freshly cooked local seafood delights such as lobster, crab, squid, and myriad of different kinds of freshly caught fish. The festival takes place at Samila Beach, and also features a ‘Miss Samila’ beauty contest, the sale of local handicraft products, and a variety of folk art shows.
