    Captain Slash just visited that area and spent 4 days or so in the Betong area before heading for Yala so I assume that it is relatively safe over there - see his posts a bit below yours.

    Ive ridden thru Yala on many occasions with no problems at all. During the day quite safe, expect to go thru several army checkpoints. I wouldnt recommend you ride at night though. Betong immigration is somewhat slack compared to Sadao. I actually lived in Betong for 10 months and know it well.
