Eat and meet

Betong

For a land-locked province, Yala has excellent seafood, and Betong is no exception. For dinner, there is a strip of good seafood places that are your best option, while noodle and rice joints abound throughout town. Two specialities of Betong are Kao Yok, a pork skin and pork fat dish mixed with taro in a kind of meatloaf deal -- it sounds gross, but it is actually pretty good; and Mee Curry, a curried noodle soup dish that is very popular for breakfast and is excellent. The bar scene is very much angled towards Malay men over for a weekend of karaoke, so nothing is all that exciting. The Merlin has a large club and the Cathay a smaller one.
