surat thani to airport

Posted by lerot on 2/4/2012 at 07:06

Hi, I am going to stay in Surat Thani for a night to take a morning flight to KL. Is it easy to get to the airport? I´ve searched info but it´s everything about getting from the piers, no info on city center. I am wondering about the price as well. Thank you

Not a lot to do in Surat Thani. Watch out for the dogs. 6 attacked me in one go - thank god for ceaser milan thats all I can say. Never run, stand your ground and back away - I lost my flip flops for a few minutes. As soon as you turn around you're fucked! Its like the canine version of the wire! Seriously though don't go down any dark alleys or badly lit streets because you can't see them.

Just don't stay over in Hat Yai - Its ****. I felt like black man in Alabama in in the 1950s. People asked me why I was so white in not the nicest way. Judging by the billboards around the country you'd think they'd have loved me! Several times I thought I had to fight or just buy a prozzie (several offered as standard for around here) and hide - I was badly lost and couldn't find my hotel. Worst experience so far out of everywhere. I'll never go back. Also reading the bangkok post today - more potential bombs. The police haven't recovered the stolen cars used as getaways in the last ones a few days ago and they expect more.

On another note - I've never bought a prozzie or a happy ending massage - its not me - just so you know.
