Get ready for Island life

Bypass the mainland and head out to sea! Surat Thani Province vacation rentals are all about the islands; and there are a few to choose from in this popular travelers' haven. Surat Thani town is a busy transport hub famed for the three diminutive islands bobbing in the waters off the coastline—otherwise known as the Samui archipelago. Although firmly on the beaten track, this island group is the perfect introduction to Thai island life. It's made up of crowd-pleaser Ko Samui, Thailand's third largest island; Ko Pha-ngan, home of the full-moon party; and diver's favourite Ko Tao. It goes without saying that all have palm-fringed white beaches, clear waters, and vibrant coral reefs.

Thrills and spills, above and below the water

Party-goers, beach bums, and adventurers are taken care of in equal measure on the islands, and Surat Thani Province vacation rentals make the perfect base. If you're looking to blow your baht on indulgent spas and posh dining, Ko Samui's your best bet, while Ko Pha-ngan has a hectic social calendar to exhaust even the hardiest of young souls. If you're more interested in what's under the water then base yourself in Ko Tao, whose shallow, warm waters and abundant marine life make it ideal for newbie divers and old-hands alike. On all three islands you'll find yoga schools, hiking opportunities and, of course, beautiful beaches.

Island hopping and village shopping

Ko Samui is the biggest of the 3 islands and has the most attractions, from temples to fishing villages to sophisticated shopping. Heading out on a day trip to Ang Thong Marine National park—supposedly the inspiration Alex Garland's iconic novel The Beach—is a must, and easily doable from all the islands. The untouched lagoons and limestone cliffs of the park's 42 islets will blow you away, and once you've picked your jaw off the floor you can jump into the waters for a spot of snorkeling.

Tropical Island fun in Surat Thani

Surat Thani Province sits on the Gulf coast so the climate here is a little different from that on the Andaman coast and much of the rest of Thailand. It's hit heavily by the northeast monsoon's rains, especially in November, when it's best to avoid this part of the country altogether. For the rest of the year, the weather is warm and sunny, for the most part, if a little changeable, with some effects of the southwest monsoon felt between May and October. Late December to April is the driest period and is the region's high season, when Surat Thani Province vacation rentals are at their highest.

Flit between forest and beaches

Surat Thani Province sits alongside the Gulf of Thailand and is made up of a big chunk of the mainland, as well as a number of offshore islands. On the mainland there are plateaus and forested mountains to the west of the province, and low river basins in the center and along the eastern coast. The islands are ringed with sandy beaches and coral reefs, and have hills and jungle in their interiors. No matter where your Surat Thani Province vacation rental lies, you won't be far from a beach.
