The name Surat Thani literally translates in Thai as the City of Good People which is certainly reflected in the warm welcome to all visitors. Surat Thani is ideally placed for vacationers to explore the magnificent Gulf of Thailand to the North and East. There are plenty of sandy beaches to relax on while enjoying water activities like kayaking, jet skiing or paragliding.  Surat Thani also has fantastic temples and remains of the Srivijaya Empire that can also be found in surrounding provinces such as Chumphon, Nakhon Si Thammarat, Krabi including Ranong.  Spend a day in Ang Thong Marine National Park.  It's the perfect place for trekking, walking, mountain climbing or scuba diving in the crystal clear waters off the Gulf of Thailand.  Colorful coral reefs are home to many different kinds of marine life such as Clown Trigger fish, Batfish, Hawksbill Turtles, Sea Snakes and Whale Sharks.  Don't forget your underwater camera so you can take snapshots of exotic marine life in their natural habitat.  Many travelers choose Surat Thani as their base to go island hopping.  Just off the coast lie the stunning islands of Ko Samui, Ko Pha-ngan and Ko Tao.

Getting around Surat Thani

There are numerous local transport options to get you around the city whether on a business trip or vacation.  For longer journeys cost-effective yellow rental taxis or taxi meters as they are known locally, are recommended. Songthaew and tuk tuks are perfect for short road trips but remember to barter for the best price.

Getting from the Airport to the City

Surat Thani Airport (URT) is just over 13 miles west of the city.  It's a small airport catering for domestic flights from Bangkok which is only around a one hour flight time.  Outside the main terminal building you can find a good choice of transport options to take you into the city.
