Yala’s population is a fascinating combination of Thai Buddhists, Thai Muslims, and Chinese Thais. With these different beliefs and cultural heritage, Yala is another great place for those who love learning about people. 

Yala Province consists of eight Amphoes, which are Mueang Yala, Betong, Bannangsta, Yaha, Raman, Tharn To, Kabang, and Krong Pinang.

The landlocked province of Yala is the administrative center for southern Thailand and features a pretty and well organized town that contains a number of parks and ponds. Otherwise, there are few attractions within the town that are geared towards visitors, though local seafood restaurants are held in high regard by Thai and Malaysian visitors. However, once outside of Yala town, there are numerous waterfalls, caves, and other natural attractions for visitors to explore.

If there is one defining attraction in Yala, it is the annual ASEAN Barred Ground Dove Festival, which is held each March for doves from Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, and Indonesia; the main event is a cooing contest that draws nearly 1,500 participants each March.

Take a tour around Yala’s city to see old buildings. Try a boat trip in Than To Lake. Go trekking along nature trails. Visit Bang Lang Dam. Take a mineral bathe in Beton Hot Spring.

There are many types of foods for you to choose from in Yala, including central Thai foods, local southern foods, Chinese foods, and Muslim foods. For Betong, which is a big Chinese community, the famous dishes are chopped chicken and stewed pork belly with taro.

Great souvenirs from Yala are fresh fruit, foods, and handcrafted products. Many of which are OTOP goods.
