    Surat Thani International Airport

    by YaaDong Written Aug 4, 2008

    Favorite thing: Surat International Airport is about an hour outsid of town so after the ferry ride from Koh Phangan the bus ride seemed very long however it was modern and comfortable.There are a number of ticket counters Thai,One 2 Go & Bangkok Air.Also a number of gift shops,ATMs,a little restaurant and a waiting area with cable TV.Surat Inter is a good little airport.

    Fondest memory: Reataurant & gift shop

    Friendly old man at the night market

    Fondest memory: While I was in Surat Thani I think I only saw about 5 other tourists. I was therefore quite unusual and treated with a lot of kindness by the locals.
    This old gent was very chatty and actually spoke quite good English.

    Fondest memory: There is a marked difference visiting places in Thailand where there are not many foreign tourists. I enjoy going to the less popular tourist haunts because of the reaction that I get from the locals. Instead of being just another farang who is good for a few bob, people start taking a genuine interest.

    Wandering around with a camera always attracts attention and it is not uncommon for people to ask me to take their photo. Most of the time I am quite happy to oblige.
    The photo is of a couple of local kids - brother and sister I think - who made such a request.
