But those numbers only report the populations for mueang Hat Yai, or mueang Chiang Mai. They don't include the surrounding districts which are integral to the city. Greater Hat Yai has a population of about 800,000 the population of Greater Chiang Mai is I think similar.

Seems to be near impossible to come up with accurate numbers, this was the best I could find.

Hat Yai and Songkhla both attract tourists, just not many western ones.   Both are enjoyable destinations if you're looking for a break. Songkhla is laid back and a little bit sleepy, long b

Surely , if a city/town is big enough to have an airport , there will be at least a few farangs around .

Do what I do if you see other Farang.   Pretend to be profoundly deaf, particularly if the greeting is 'sup dude/bro?'

If i had to choose Songkla would win every time, lot more laid back, HY caters to Malaysians mainly IMO.

For sure, I have never been in any Thai city of any size that doesn't have a good fruit & vegetable market, no idea where they are though! more of a seedy bar person 🙂

Numbers 2 and 3 are just suburbs of Bangkok. Then it's a toss up between Hat Yai, Chiang Mai and Khorat depending on how you measure the numbers.

I'd say, Pattaya is the 2nd biggest city of Thailand. Not measured by people registered in a Tabien Bahn, but residents. And no, i don't live there, we stay in Khlong Rang, Songkhla.

i took the bus from Mo Chit to Sukhothai in December one year.  A very scenic 7 hour ride with a stop for lunch.  Very few foreigners were at the ruins and I loved it for a few days.  I did not get around much and there did not seem to be much going on in the city, but that was fine with me.  Wandering around the old ancient temples and buildings.

 

  Took the bus from Pattaya to Khorat once.  Did not do much in the city but sure enjoyed the tram rides around the zoo.

I live in a non-tourist city in Thialand, partly to avoid frequent contact with Falangs.

 

I only go into the large cities when I absolutely have to.

What do you have against farangs?

no problem avoiding fellow farang ANYWHERE these days ... just wear a big black face mask. I was at Siam BTS the other day and a nice government dude in a suit tried to give me a free little blue one ... i had to refuse ... politely of course ... but appreciated the gesture.

i have a friend who, several years ago, started to live in areas where there are no foreigners, he was keen to improve his, already good, thai language skills and immerse himself in thai culture. it's not for everyone but it made him happy.

"Not many Farang" why is that? Are you Muslim yourself? Are you racist? Sounds like it to me. Get yourself off to China mate, no Farangs there 

He's probably a Vegan.
