Located on the central Gulf Coast of Southern Thailand, Surat Thani is one of the largest cities in Thailand and the capital city of the province of the same name. Traveling to Surat Thani from most areas of Thailand is very easy, with the city being served by regularly scheduled air, ground, and rail transportation. Surat Thani Airport
is located just a few kilometers outside of the city center, and is very well served by hotels and guesthouses within close reach of the airport.
The city center is like most other cities in Thailand, with no shortage of temples, shrines, and markets to occupy one’s time and attention. The Surat Thani Night Market
is an exhilarating mix of sights, sounds, and smells as the entertainment and hawkers share the market streets with several food stands. One can easily spend several hours just walking around the night market, taking in the sights and sounds and tasting a few of the street foods and drinks to complete the experience. Being located in the city center makes it easy to reach the market from any number of the hotels and guesthouses that are located on the website.
For something a little less urban, don’t miss a visit to Koh Lamphu Public Park
, a beautiful and natural landscape that is the perfect accent to days spent in the hustle and bustle of city life.
