|There are jobs all over Thailand, including the South. Hat Yai is the biggest city down there. The pay as in other areas of Thailand is generally low.
But recently martial law was declared in three provinces in the deep South due to a number of violent incidents. See excerpt from story below:
Thai south hit by fresh violence
Unidentified attackers have killed a police officer in southern Thailand amid continuing tensions in the area.
The police instructor died after his throat was slashed in Sunday's raid in Yala province, police captain Sunand Sangsawat said on Tuesday.
Mr Sunand also said a Buddhist temple in a nearby Narathiwat province was damaged in a separate attack on Monday.
The string of recent attacks in the area have been blamed by Thai officials on both Muslim separatists and bandits.
The government in Bangkok has pledged a tough action to end attacks against government targets and also Buddhist monks, three of whom were hacked to death in recent weeks.
