This trip will take you to one of the oldest rain forests in Thailand and it is only a few hours away from Koh Samui by car and ferry. On the way there is many interesting places to visit which most tourist will never see.
At the end of the tour it is possible to be dropped off at Surat Thai airport where flights to Bangkok are about half the Samui-Bangkok price. Another option is to connect with regular bus services to Bangkok, Phuket, Krabi or even Malaysia. Return to Samui is of course included in the price.
Surat Thani Town & River
Crossing from Samui, the local ferry takes 1.5 hours and provides fantastic views of the mainland as well as the Ang Thong Marine Park. One hour drive from the ferry terminal on the mainland you reach the town of Surat Thani, capital of the province (of the same name), and the largest province in Southern Thailand.
Surat Thani town has a large fresh food market where you can find an amazing range of fruits and vegetables perhaps some that you have never seen or tasted before.
