    Hat Yai vs. Dannok vs. Betong vs. Sungei Golok?

    Any members familiar with all four places care to offer their succinct appraisal?

    I could do same on Chiang Mai vs. Phnom Penh vs. Singapore vs. Jakarta vs. Kolkata.

    My particular interests in these destinations in the South are...

    1. 80% 'nightlife', particulary of the direct street variety rather than fancy massage and KTV fronts
    2.15% vegetarian food
    3. 3% good value
    4. 1% infrastructure
    5. 1% hot springs

    Will explore for a week. Haven't been deep South since 1991 when SG had a remarkable selection of 'houses' with a Burmese and Chiang Rai flavour. I don't drink alcohol and tire very quickly of crowds of ethnic Chinese whose habits include feasting and boozing instead of the main event. Since I am fond of Tamil food wherever South Indian Malaysian go might be suitable. But not at the cost of great nightlife. I like afternoon delight, not staying up to 3 am which is why I don't like the BKK scene. I land in Had Yai Nov. 3 - in two days.

    Dannok intrigues me the most. Terrorist risk is not a significant factor. I will not be wearing my Charlie Hebdo T-shirt.

    I will post my experiences here.

    By night life one assumes you mean whores and their bothies, and skanky beer bars selling tepid beer amid cockroaches and mosquitoes in provincial squalor, patrolled by flea-bitten, mangy soi dogs in streets bordered by dreary, concrete shophouses in varying degrees of decrepitude?

    One can barely still one's beating heart at the prospect of your report.
