About Travel to Khura Buri
Khura Buri is a small sparsely populated district in the northern part of Phang Nga Province, directly west of Surat Thani and to the south of Ranong, which is also located on Thailand’s Andaman Coast. The busy Phetchkasem Highway, that runs south from Bangkok through Hua Hin, passes through Khura Buri Town. Khuri Buri Town has a bus station, some shops and some small inexpensive hotels and not much more. Khura Buri Town has relatively little of interest for tourists, it is, however, the connection point between long distance bus services and connecting local bus and boat services to explore the area.
Khura Buri District is immensely beautiful and much less developed as a tourism destination than nearly all other coastal areas of Thailand. For visitors looking for that perfect seculded beach bungalow Khura Buri is the place to come. Of particular interest are the three islands of Koh Ra, Koh Surin and Koh Phra Thong, all which you can reach by longtail boats departing from a pier located 8.6 km to the north west of Khura Buri Bus Station. To get from the bus station to the pier, and on to your island of choice, what we recommend is asking at one of the tour agencies in Khura Buri. Tours to Koh Ra, Koh Surin and Koh Phra Thong can be easily arranged during the tourist season from November to April. You would find it more difficult to reach the islands from May through to the end of October when a lot of the local hotels and guesthouses close entirely because of the lack of tourists.
