THE SOUTH

The most prominent tourist attraction in the South is inevitably Phuket (862 km), the biggest island of Thailand located in the Andaman Sea. It has rapidly become one of the best known seaside resorts of the world. Apart from the numerous beaches around the island and all kinds of accommodation facilities, it is famous for its seafood, coral and marine life. It also serves as a base for exploration trips to nearby islands. The grand celebration of the Vegetarian Festival in October is another attraction. But if you find Phuket a little too crowded in the peak tourist season, then Samui Island of Surat Thani (644 km) will be another choice. Its tranquility and unpolluted environment will refresh you. Ranong (568 km), Thailand's rainiest province, is well known for its hot springs and Burmese gems. Phatthalung (840 km) is believed to be in the realm of the ancient Sri Vijaya Kingdom, which has long been forgotten leaving only a few hallowed hills today. Songkhla (950 km) is a famous seaside resort in the far South where a cruise on Songkhla Lake is fascinating. Another famous place in this province is Hat Yai, the big bustling city widely known for the low-priced imported goods. Phang-nga (788 km), adjoining Phuket, is full of magnificent seascape and beautiful limestone caves. Krabi (814 km) and Trang  (828 km) also have many fine beaches and beautiful scenery waiting to be explored. Tarutao Island off Satun (973 km), being the remotest, will provide you with the most marvellous underwater life and most tranquil atmosphere.
