Another town and province a very long way from Bangkok but starting to get a reputation as a must-see part of Southern Thailand. It's quite a fertile hunting ground for teachers as well by the sound of it.

Is Surat Thani just a place to pass through on the way to somewhere else. Like Koh Samui for example? Or is it TEFL teacher Heaven?
