About Train Travel to Surat Thani


Surat Thani is fairly large city with around 130,000 permanent residents. Far more foreign visitors travel to Surat Thani City than they do to Nakhon Si Thammarat because ferries to the popular islands of Koh Samui and Koh Phangan depart from ferry piers in Surat Thani Province.

Tourist Attractions in Surat Thani

Surat Thani City is a much newer city than Nakhnon Si Thammarat. Most of the buildings in the city centre were built from the middle of the 20th century onwards and there are no major historical or other tourist attractions in Surat Thani. The most popular of Surat Thani Province’s tourist attractions are located outside of the city. For example, Wat Phra Borommathat Chaiya. The countryside around Surat Thani City is also worth exploring, particular the many smaller waterways accessible only by boat.

Where to Stay in Surat Thani

There are lots of inexpensive hotels located right in the centre of Surat Thani close to the city centre bus stations. The better hotels, however, are located a few kilometres away on the Sri Wichai and Bypass Roads to south of the city centre. The most notable of these being the Diamond Plaza and the 100 Islands Resort and Spa.
