Surat Thani

(3.6/5 based on 1,200+ reviews for 8 attractions)
Things to do: nature, shopping, historic sites
Literally translated as "City of Good People," Surat Thani ranks as the eighth-largest city in Thailand and the historical seat from which the Sriwijaya kingdom ruled much of Southeast Asia. In terms of tourism, Surat Thani generally serves as a transport link to the popular islands surrounding it, including Ko Samui. Before heading off to a tropical paradise, however, it pays to tour Surat Thani--where you'll glimpse the lives of ordinary, working Thai residents in an industrial transport hub. Perhaps the best way to do so is by visiting the night markets selling souvenirs, clothing, and authentic Thai street food. Make the most of your holiday in Surat Thani by finding out about its attractions and choosing what to see using our Thailand tour planner.
