What We Love About Koh Pha Ngan & Surat Thani

As one of the oldest cities in Thailand, Surat Thani is a city filled with wonder. Visit the Khao Sok National Park, one of the oldest rainforests in the world. If you're lucky, you'll even spot a flying fox zipping around. Get friendly with an elephant or two at Khao Sok and spend a day with these gentle giants. At Koh Pha Ngan, visit the stunning white sandy beach of Thong Nai Pan! Head to the Than Sadet Waterfall to have a dip and spot the inscription on a rock left by King Rama V. Don't miss out on the delicious seafood at the Thong Sala night market!
