Surat Thani is the gateway to Thailand’s Eastern Islands Ko Phangan, Ko Samui and Ko Tau. We decided to spend the evening/night there in order to catch our early morning flight the next day. Turned out to be a brilliant choice. After one week in Ko Phangan, it was quite nice to stay in a real room again, rather than a bungalow. And the night market didn’t disappoint either. The only sad thing was that our bellies weren’t big enough in order to try more tasty food!
