    Doesn't seem to have a lot going for it.
    TeakDoor.com - The Thailand Forum Surat Thani

    I thought Surat Thani was only famed for it's paid assassins... or was that Pathalung?

    There's a big nightclub in Surat Thani, which was good as someone else was paying. There was also a big hotel with a Butlins style nightclub and a Chinky style crappy restaurant.

    Other than that, it seemed to be a dreadful place.

    There are many good hotels in surat, a couple right over the road from tescos, which has its own bus service into the city centre.

    The wifes uncles hotel ..Siam Thani, and many budget to good ones smack in the centre,

    Keep in mind surat is the gateway to samui etc so expect lots of sweaty backpackers.
    number of the beast

    Funny thing about Surat and the Scank backpackers are that you don't see too many cruising around the place.

    These days many just go straight to the ferry port or the Train station and fok right off out of the place.

    Surats Ok for night or two if you are easily amused and stop in a nice hotel.
    Stroller is a Yerman faggot.

    Yep, "100 Island Resort and Spa" is a little ripper. Id go as far as saying its in my top ten best ever hotel deals to be had in Thailand.

    Large foyer inside a Teak Palace, big pool, big rooms and friendly staff, not in the centre of Surat but the hotel makes up for it.

    Phone number is 077201150 . Rooms are a bargain.

    Cant go wrong there mate.

    she was an english lady from the midlands and all i
    know of her is a nickname sammy.
    i can't remember a surname.
    her mobile died and emails never got replied.
    went to a place near thai airways main office i think; in bangkok
    where missing people are investigated but got no joy.
    we hung out together in bangkok for about a week
    and decided to meet up in surat thani after we took care of some things.
    guess she was a bit of a wild one but not stupid.

    It is a pretty good deal. The last time I stayed there (2009), however, I was a tad put off by the dirty syringe I found in the bathroom.

    Never knew her. In all likelihood, she changed plans/met a new paramour/ran out of money/etc. and that was that. I doubt it was anything sinister.
