Western tourists in Nakhon Si Thammarat City - where are they?

Recommended Posts

Greetings.

 

My step daughter is studying at a university in Nakhon Si Thammarat district.

 

At the end of last week her lecturer told her class that each member of the class had to personally find and interview 5 farang (not Asian!!!) tourists in Nakhon Si Thammarat (NST) district before 25 May!!!

 

She and her class mates have had no luck in finding any farang tourists in NST district over the past 3 days.

 

Can anyone please advise where and what time of the day is a good location and time to find farang tourists in NST District, preferably in the city area, at this time of the year.

 

Many thanks in advance.

 

Jim

Maybe try the bus station? Most tourists could just be passing through NST?

Agree with RotBenz, there are a few around the big temple there. Also a few farang wandering around the new central mall although they might not be genuine tourists ;)

  I have been "interviewed" myself a couple of times. It would have been interesting if the OP had explained the purpose of this exercise?

The temple Wat Phra Mahathat Woramahawihan is a popular tourist attraction. If it's to hot, try mc donalds.

 

Thanks RotBenz8888; we have been Wat Phra Mahathat Woramahawihan three times in the past 2 years.  Never saw any other farangs there, but lots of Chinese.  McDonalds sounds good.

Thank you Pimak.  We have been to Central Plaza a few times, and the only farangs we have seen there have been with Thai wives or girl friends.  But worth a try.

My apologies dotpoom - we had just returned late yesterday from a few days in Bangkok when I received the message from my step daughter via her mother.  It was late, I was very tired and not thinking clearly.

 

The apparent purpose of the interviews is to "obtain an idea of farang tourist behaviour in NST".  To which I replied, "what does the lecturer mean by 'farang tourist behaviour'?." Response - no idea, she (the Thai lecturer) did not explain.  TIT.

Best bet is train station area and the hotels east of it. Or camp out at the National Museum, Wat Mahathat or Suchart Subsin's shadow puppetry place. I've always seen a few backpackers poking around when in Nakhon, but then again that was always Nov-Feb high season time.
