About Travel to Surat Thani


Surat Thani City is not a particularly popular tourist destination in its own right. This relatively new city has few points of interest for visitors, although it does have good amenities such as a wide range of affordable hotels and some lively night markets. The reason most tourists come to Surat Thani is that is a travel hub for other destinations in Thailand. In particular Surat Thani Province has several ferry piers and ports with services to and from the popular islands of Koh Samui and Koh Phangan, as well as less frequent services to emerging destinations such as Koh Phaluai. If you are arriving into Surat Thani by train bear in mind that the train station is 16 km from the city centre. Your best option for onward travel to Koh Samui and Koh Phangan is therefore to take a direct joint bus and ferry from right outside the front of the train station rather than wasting time taking a bus or taxi into the city centre to start your journey.
