As Satun borders Malaysia, a majority of Satun’s population is Muslim, many of whom are of Malaysian descent, adding a colourful character to the town, particularly in regard to Food and clothing.

Satun town, the province’s capital, is a sleepy town that typically only sees travellers who are en route to either the offshore islands or Malaysia. However, mainland Satun does feature the Thale Ban national park, which contains a number of waterfalls and a large lagoon surrounded by towering mountains.

From the port town at Pakbara, the top island destinations in Satun are Koh Tarutao and Koh Lipe, idyllic and generally undeveloped islands renowned for their spectacular natural beauty. Other islands include Koh Bulon Lae, Koh Adang and Koh Petra National Marine Park.

 The monsoon winds make Boat travel off coastal Satun dangerous from May through October.

 Every year during the rainy season (16 May - 15 November) the island National Parks, including Koh Tarutao (Adang - Rawi Islands) and Koh Phetra are closed for visitor safety.
