The Largest Mail Box in Thailand

Do you know the largest mail box in Thailand is located in the South? Just within an hour of driving from the Pengkalan Hulu Immigration (Perak), you will reach one of the most popular border towns in Thailand, Betong in Yala.

When you reach the main roundabout of Betong, you will find the Betong Clock Tower and next to it is the Largest Mail Box in Thailand. It is used to be located at the bell tower intersection of Betong.

This is the picture of the mail box in short distance.
It was built in 1924 before World War II as the communication post for the townspeople, through the radio implanted on top of the box, and the mail slot below it. A new box has been built in a larger size (nine meters tall), and is located at the City Convention Hall (Sala Prachakhom).

If you are wondering why it is the largest, now you can tell the size from this angle. It is humongous!
The new mail box attracts a large number of tourists who come to take photographs and selfies or wefies.

It is easy to drive to Betong and other parts of Southern Thailand. Get your FREE copy of The Easy Fun Self Drive in Thailand South Region at TAT office at Suite 22.01, Level 22, Menara Citibank, 165, Jalan Ampang, 50450 Kuala Lumpur.
