Travel Guide

Surat Thani in Southern Thailand


Surat Thani Province is home to Koh Samui - an island that has gained a worldwide reputation as for charm and beauty that warrant a traveler's attention. Samui is idyllic - white-sand beaches, blue water and all the trappings of a Hollywood interpretation of a tropical paradise. Only 21 kilometres at its widest point and 25 kilometres long, Samui offers a series of landscapes including limestone and granite hills, forests, and a coastline fringed with palm trees, beaches and bays. Chaweng and Lamai Beaches on the east coast are renowned for being the best and also offer the most in terms of accommodation, restaurants and nightlife. There are though a number of beaches on the island offering a quieter experience. Surat Thani has a range of other islands to visit, and steeped in history has a variety of historical sites.
