Where to Go
Activities Surat Thani
The numerous islands along its coast make Surat Thani a perfect getaway for vacationers from around the world. The ideal destination for many is Koh Samui, Thailand’s third largest island, and its neighbor Koh Phangan, a former hippie retreat that now hosts a raving mad full moon party. North of Koh Phangan is Koh Tao, renowned for its excellent coral reefs and affordable scuba certification courses. To top it all is the dazzling 250-square-kilometer Ang Thong Marine National Park, where a stunning archipelago awaits visitors with charming palm-fringed beaches, crystal clear water, and colorful coral reefs.
