Visit Surat Thani

Surat Thani
132.0 thousand

Surat Thani is a province located in the southern part of Thailand, on the eastern shore of the Gulf of Thailand. It is known for its stunning beaches, crystal clear waters, and lush jungles. Tourists can visit the vibrant night markets to experience local culture, take a tour at Khao Sok National Park to view animals in their natural habitat and explore one of Thailand's oldest temples at Wat Suan Mokkh.

One of Surat Thani's most interesting historical facts is its connection with Malay settlers from Sumatra who are believed to have migrated here during the late 13th century. This makes it an ideal destination for those looking for an authentic cultural encounter with a unique blend of Thai and Malay influences. Visit Laem Sor Pagoda to learn more about this history or explore Laem Sor Harbor for some great seafood restaurants and stunning sunset views.
