Destination: Khanom & Sichon, Thailand

Inspiration:

I was looking for a beach destination close to Surat Thani city.

Getting There:

It's about 1 hour from Surat Thani by minivan. Costs are B100 one way. Surat Thani is easy to reach from Bangkok by plane, bus or train.

Local Knowledge:

There are only 2,000 pink dolphins in the world. In Khanom you have a big chance to see some!

Where To Stay:

Hallo Villa, 1000B a night for a beautiful bungalow with lots of privacy, a nice swimming pool and close to the beach. There are enough choises for all budgets in Khanom.

What To Do:

The best way to explore the area is to rent a motorbike and discover many empty and beautiful beaches, waterfalls and the local fisherman village.

Eating:

Try different foods on the night market. Local specialties like massaman curry, papaya salad and sugarcane juice. Nice burgers, German and Italian food are also available!

Must Do:

Samet Chun waterfall. A beautiful waterfalls with many pools and a view over the palmtrees and ocean!

Must See:

Definitaly one of its empy beaches! Rent a bike and discover beautiful bays!

Number 1 Travel Tip:

Rent a motorbike, the area is difficult to explore by public transport.

5 Word Travel:

Authentic, quiet, beach, friendly locals

Excess Baggage:

Learn a couple Thai words to connect with the friendly locals, as people hardly speak english in this part of Thailand.
