Surat Thani Road Trips
Surat Thani in Thai translates to ‘City of Good People’. Surat Thani once was the seat of the ancient Srivijaya Empire. Today, this typical Thai town is a busy transport hub which moves cargo and people all around the country. Travellers generally pass through here as they make their way to the more popular islands of Ko Tao, Ko Samui, and Ko Pha-Ngan. It's a great place to stop if you enjoy good southern style street food, real Thai working cities, and sight-seeing at colourful Chinese temples. Surat Thani is the largest province in South Thailand and offers a great variety of water sports including snorkelling, windsurfing, jet-ski rentals, diving and more.
Khao Sok National Park
Located in South Thailand, Khao Sok in 1980 was established as Thailand's 22nd National Park. It covers 739 km² land area of both the Amphoe Phanom and Ban Takhun regions in Surat Thani province. It includes the Cheow Lan reservoir which is dammed by the Ratchaprapha Dam. Due to the relatively convenient distance to Phuket, Kao Lak, Koh Samui, and Krabi, this park is the most popular National Park in South Thailand.
Ko Pha Ngan
Since the 1980’s, Ko Pha Ngan's popularity has skyrocketed among backpackers, and independent travellers who eschew more developed areas such as Ko Samui. This is clearly evident as one notices the increasing awareness and popularity of the Full Moon Party. This extremely boisterous night-long celebration, which is directly tied to the lunar calendar, draws a revelling crowd to its southeastern peninsula, Haad Rin. Most festivities centre on Sunrise Beach.
Bophut’s Fisherman’s Village
This fisherman's village is fast gaining a reputation which stretches far beyond Surat Thani for being the most elegant, and well-preserved location on the island. It is lined by old wooden Chinese shop-houses, carefully mixed with a few modern buildings that match the overall theme, and retains a distinctly Mediterranean feel. The village was a main French outpost on the island for many years. Sprinkled in among the shops can be found several boutiques, which sell high quality clothing and jewellery. There are numerous dive shops, offering scuba lessons or day dives.
