Introducing Satun

Lying in a steamy jungle valley surrounded by limestone cliffs, and framed by a murky river, isolated Satun is a relaxing coastal town where tourism is limited to visa-run traffic, which flows in both directions. Malaysia-based yachties, passing through for cheap repairs in Satun’s acclaimed boat yard, are the only travellers who seem to hang around, but if you wander a bit before you leave, you’ll see some interesting religious architecture, lots of friendly smiles and plenty of gritty charm.
