At that time, Ra-ngae was then also one of the seven dependencies of Muang Pattani.
Today, Narathiwat is one of the smallest provinces in Thailand. It is also one of the 4 southern Muslim provinces.
The provincial capital with the same name has many old wooden structures, many of them over 100 years old. The urban community is a mixture of Chinese and Malay. Since drinking is not encouraged, the town appears quiet and peaceful at night.
Most well known structure in this vicinity is the Southern resort of the king, Phra Taksin Ratchanivet.
Waterfalls in this Province that are known to outsiders :-
The Bacho Waterfall
This is the most beautiful waterfall in Narathiwat Province. "Bacho" is a word derived from the jawi language. It refers to a waterfall area frequented by the royal entourage.
The area around the fall is now proclaimed as a National Park. The fall itself has fair volume water throughout the years and drops some 60 meters.
Along the same river and about 2 kilometers upstream, there is another waterfall named -"Besu". This fall however has a lower drop and it is within the restricted catchments area. It is unlikely any visit is allowed.
