Welcome to Khuraburi
Blink and you’ll miss it. But, if you keep your eyes wide open, you’ll enjoy this soulful, dusty, roadside gateway to the Surin Islands and some of southern Thailand's best community-based tourism opportunities. For local inhabitants, Khuraburi is a tiny market town spread out along both sides of Hwy 4 that's relied on by hundreds of squid fishermen.
Until the Thai government started cracking down on people smuggling, the surrounding area had an unsavoury reputation as being a key entry point for people being trafficked or smuggled into Thailand from Myanmar.
