Surat Thani overview

Surat Thani Travel Guide
The city of Surat Thani on Southern Thailandís Central Gulf Coast is known well by beach-bum backpackers as the gateway to such beautiful islands as Ko Samui, Ko Tao and the notorious Ko Pha Ngan. Because of the latter, after every full moon of the year, Surat Thani is packed full of weary people doing the long walk of shame after the rowdy Full Moon Party. Surat Thani is also home to the Ang Thong National Marine Park, although most people passing through here are too hung-over to appreciate it. There are a number of bars in the downtown district of Surat Thani, However, so if youíre in the same state as everyone else, maybe a little hair-of-the-dog will help perk you up.
