Amazing Surat Thani

Located on the Eastern shore of the Gulf of Thailand, Surat Thani is known as ‘the province of a thousand islands’ to the locals. This province is situated close to Krabi and Phuket and is the largest one in Southern Thailand. This place acts like a hub where many tourists from all over the world tend to pass by. So if you have time to spare, stay in Surat Thani hotels for about a night or two and experience what this beautiful place has to offer. The best time to visit this province is usually between April and November.
Things To Do
There are plenty of activities that you can do in this huge province. You can go swimming, sightseeing and even go for some real sports. If you are traveling with children and wish to bring them to an educational tour, check out Monkey College! It’s a great and fascinating tour where you get to watch how the locals train monkeys to pluck and distinguish between good and bad coconuts. That, or you can head down to Samui Football Golf Club where you can do some fun football kicking with your family!
What to Eat
Thailand is home to a variety of cheap and good food. In Surat Thani especially, there are a whole lot of cheap foods that can be found almost everywhere in the streets. Follow the rule of thumb – where there is a crowd, the food must be good. They also have various restaurants including Italian ones, as well as Chinese, European and of course traditional Thai ones. If you are looking for authentic Thai food, head down to Pawn’s Restaurant! Owned by Pawn herself, the restaurant serves great Paad Thai and Fried Banana Fritters. Yum!
Where to Stay
Depending on what you are looking for, Surat Thani has plenty of villas, hotels, apartments, resorts and bungalows. These Surat Thani hotels can either be located in town, hidden in the quiet village or even smacked right on the beach itself. Depending on your budget, Surat Thani offers a wide range of accommodations to suit your every needs and desires.
Surat Thani has a fairly reasonable nightlife scene here. However, do not expect it to be like those in Phuket’s infamous Patong Beach. The nightlife scene here is rather decent with a number of beach bars along Chaweng Beach, where their nightlife thrives. These bars include Viking Bar and Ourbar (the only Irish bar around). In fact, just walk along the beach and go to any bar which attracts you the most!…
