Surat Thani (often shortened to Surat) is the largest province of south Thailand. It's a gateway to the islands of Thailand's Gulf Coast: Koh Samui, Koh Pha Ngan and Koh Tao. They are much-visited destinations, as well as Ang Thong National Marine Park. Otherwise there is not especially much to do or see in Surat Thani Town , which means there are not many international travellers, but it is a great opportunity to see a more real Thailand with local foods, prices, chaos and friendliness.
The city offers no major tourist attractions in itself, and is mainly known to tourists as the jumping-off point to Koh Samui, Koh Pha Ngan and Koh Tao,but it's a great stop if you enjoy real Thai working cities, good southern style street food and nosing around colourful Chinese temples and Chinese shopfronts.
