About Surat Thani

Introduction

khao-sok-surat-thani

Surat Thani is the largest province in southern Thailand. It’s about 650km from Bangkok, and is known to be the province that contains the largest number of islands. It’s often a traveler’s hub due to its proximity and accessibility to the trio of Koh Samui, Koh Phangan and Koh Tao, each known for their own specific niche. The numerous islands along the coast of Surat Thani make it the perfect gateway town for tourists from all over the world.

The best time to visit Surat Thani and its associated islands is from November to January, when the weather is cool and dry. However, this also marks high season for this region, so prices will be higher and everything will be a bit more crowded. However, it’s by far the best time weatherwise to go, so it’s well worth it.

 

There are a number of festivals that occur in Surat Thani. The Rambutan Fair is held in August in front of Srisurat Ground and the Bank of Tapi River. Legend has it that the first rambutan tree was planted in Surat Thani in 1926, and now is one of the most popular fruits in the region.

 

Another opular festival is the Chak Phra Festival held in October. Locals celebrate the end of the annual 3 month Buddhist Rains. The tradition comes from the belief that the Buddha ascended to Heaven during Phansa to preach to his mother. Therefore, the festival signifies the Buddha’s return to Earth, and this is celebrated by organized boat races as well as traditional water games at the Tapi River.

History

The history of Surat Thani is quite fruitful. It’s believed by some archeologists that prehistoric tribes of the Saemang and original Malays lived in Surat Thani. In the 13th century, the city became a part of the glorious Srivijaya Empire which ruled over the Malay Peninsula as well as parts of Java. When the empire caved, it was divided into three main areas: Chaiya, Tha Thong and Khiri Rat, which were under the jurisdiction of Nakhon Si Thammarat under King Rama IV. These three areas were eventually combined under just the name Chaiya, which was later changed to Surat Thani.

Surat Thani translates to “city of the good people” and is today an important administrative, commercial and shopping hub for locals, and a travel hub for foreigners.

 

Angthong-National-Park

Surrounding Environment

Surat Thani is best known for being the jump off point to three of its most famous islands.

Koh Samui

Koh Samui is the second largest island in Thailand, after Phuket. It is arguably one of the best developed islands, and has a range of 5 star restaurants, hotels and activities. It even has an immigration office. There are a number of international schools on the island, and many businesses operate out of Koh Samui due to its higher level of infrastructure. A Central Mall has been recently built in Koh Samui, cementing its status as a bit of a city on an island.

Koh Phangan

Known as the island who hosts the Full Moon Party every month, Koh Phangan is slowly trying to change its image to be more family friendly, as well as a haven for digital nomads. A large number of dive schools operate out of Koh Phangan, as well as freediving schools. It’s also a center for yoga and wellness activities, many of them located on the beach! Koh Phangan is also home to a few other parties, much less crazy than the Full Moon Party, which is hosted weekly depending on the moon’s location.

Koh Tao

Besides being known for the murders of 2014, Koh Tao is also known for and absolutely specializes in diving. Home to one of the most concentrated number of dive schools in the world, the temperature and high diversity of wildlife in Koh Tao, plus having such friendly locals and delicious food makes Koh Tao a dream destination to earn a diving certification. Besides diving, there are also hiking activities as well as a few rock climbing companies to check out!

Transportation

By Plane

There’s an

in Surat Thani which has daily flights connecting in domestic and a few international locations in SE Asia. This is the quickest way to reach Surat Thani from Bangkok. If you plan ahead of time, tickets are often quite cheap.

By Train

The train in Thailand is a unique way to get around. It takes quite some time, as trains are both incredibly slow and often delayed, but it is beautiful and can be quite comfortable as well. There is a night train that departs around 20:00 daily, and arrives back in Bangkok at around 08:00. The journey is about 12 hours no matter what class train you are in. Train tickets go on sale 60 days prior to the date of departure. First and occasionally second class trains will sell out, but third class almost never does. Third class and some second class seats do not have air conditioning.

By Bus

There are also a few buses that leave from Khao Sarn Road daily. There are also buses that leave from Sai Tai Mai, also known as the Southern Bus Terminal. Depending on what company you use, the bus will leave at different times. Make sure to check online as schedules change often due to demand and season. Some of the buses can be quite comfortable, as there’s plenty of legroom and some trips even include a free meal.

Tourist Attractions

Cheow Lan Dam (Ratchaprapa Dam)

A wonderful place for a day trip or as part of an extension trip to Khao Sok. This dam was created in 1982 and is famous for its stunning views and limestone cliffs. The dam was formed by flooding a valley of dense rainforest. The nature that reside in the flooded forest still thrives today, and include numerous monkeys, elephants, water buffalos, bears, and the world’s largest flower species, the Rafflesia. The lake is known for its sports fishing. There are even floating bungalows for those who wish to enjoy this paradise for more than just a day trip.

Opening hours: sunrise to sunset, daily

Entrance fee: none

Ang Thong National Park

Ang Thong is one of the most famous parks in Surat Thani province, and with good reason. With endless activities to indulge in naturewise, there are also boat trips and diving adventures to be had. You can go snorkeling, kayaking, stay overnight, hiking, viewpoint hunting, caving, and there’s even some rock climbing. However, the catch is that there’s only electricity from 6-10pm every night, although there is free WiFi near the restaurant. The national park is only accessible by boat, so you’ll have to either get a speedboat if you’re a group, or join a boat tour.

Opening hours: 24/7, daily

Entrance fee: 300 THB for foreign adults, 150 THB for foreign children

Activities

Cooking Classes

Surat Thani is a popular place to take a cooking class. There are quite a few companies available that provide this service. Most of them start off with a trip to the market, or an explanation of what ingredients are usually used in Thai cooking. Then you’ll make a variety of dishes under the supervision of a teacher. You’ll likely make a curry, a noodle dish, as well as a dessert, with other courses sprinkled in depending on if you take a half day or full day class. Most companies will also include transportation to and from your resort.

Opening hours: depends on the company, most start around 09:00 and finish at either lunch time (half day) or around 5pm (full day)

Entrance fee: classes start at 800 THB

Massages

Since Surat Thani is a transit point, it’s likely that you’re traveling through here and have spent some time cramped in an airplane, train, or bus. A local Thai massage is a great way to both experience the culture of Thai massage, as well as relax and work out some sore muscles. Most places don’t need an appointment, and are cash only. If you’re feeling adventurous, try a two hour Thai massage! You can ask the masseurs to adjust the pressure if you like it strong or not.

Opening hours: most massage parlors open from 10:00 to 22:00, daily.

Entrance fee: an hour of Thai massage typically costs 200-300THB.

Night Market

Every evening starting around 17:00, the locals flock to the market for both dinner and a social gathering. There are endless types of street food to choose from, as well as clothing, trinkets, handmade artifacts, and electronics. On the weekends, there may be dance and cultural performances as well. Another way to experience a more local side of life.

Opening hours: 17:00 until 22:00, daily

Entrance fee: none, but remember to bring plenty of cash for the market!

Travel Tips

  • Scams - there are quite a few scams here in Surat Thani since it’s such a touristy town. One of the more common ones is tuk tuks trying to take you to your destination, when in fact your destination is just a 5 minute walk away. When you exit the train station and want to get to the ferry, tuk tuks will tell you that the bus station is an hour away, and try to charge you 300-800 THB to get to the bus station. If you just keep refusing and saying you’ll walk to the bus station, you’ll realize that it’s just a few minutes away.

  • Sunscreen - since most of Surat Thani’s attractions are outdoors, be vigilant about wearing sunscreen even when it’s cloudy out. The sun and UV rays can be quite brutal after a day in the outdoors. In addition, if you’re purchasing sunscreen in Thailand, pay attention to the label, as a lot of items here contain whitening cream. This may include lotion, face wash, soap, and any other products you put on your skin.

S.22 Hotel Suratthani
Overview is good. Check in is so quick and friendly. Hotel is new, fresh and modern room decorations. The location is not bad but you still need to rent a car to travel around the city. The tap water that I feel very clean, personally I smell chlorine in the bath room water also after I finished took a bath. (If you're skin sensitive with chlorine in the water, please consider). A few complain from me. Hotel provides just 2 pillows and 2 small ones. That why I gave rate 4/5 for this hotel. I expected a big 4 pillows for 1 king bedroom. Moreover, Television in my room is quite old (there is a crack line on the screen) and doesn't Android TV. (You can't chrome-cast a Netflix, Youtube or others from your mobile phone). This might not be a hotel problem. I wanna say my room is on the 3rd floor and face closed to the motorcycle park. I did heard sound of motorcycles engine starting a lot at night (there was biker group stay here and did a large of engine sound around the hotel zone). I would suggest hotel has some rule for guests who has a noise vehicle engine to park other area to avoid noise up to the rooms. Anyway, If compare to others hotel, I still recommend this hotel for your top hotel choices at Surat Thani province. Staffs so nice and pretty. Reasonable prices.

Cheaper Room
I've been traveling for couple decades now and this is one of the best value for a cheap hotel ever! AC, mini fridge, private bathroom, even the sheets smelled nice. Location might be off putting for some, but it 's a steal at this price.
