Satun lies in a steamy jungle surrounded by limestone cliffs and since it lies on the Malay Peninsula, the Malaysian Langkawi Island is connected to Satun by direct ferry. The province has neither a train station nor an airport. The closest airports to Satun are Hat Yai and Langkawi in Malaysia. You can fly from Bangkok to Hat Yai then take a three-hour bus trip from the airport to Saturn. There are several buses that leave daily from Bangkok Southern Bus Terminal to Saturn, the trip takes between 15 and 16 hours. And for train lovers, the nearest train station is also in Hat Yai and you can take a minivan or a bus from the station to the province.

There are regular Songthaews to take you across the town from north to south. Tuk-tuks and motorbike taxis are also available on Satun.

Satun Information

The name Saturn is derived from the Malay word “Setul” which means “wild Mangosteen tree”. Thailand has four provinces which have a Muslim majority and Satun is one of them, due to its location which is on the Malay peninsula and the borders of Malaysia. Satun is also full of religious architecture, lots of friendly smiles, delicious food, and authentic charm. The province hasn’t been affected by violence and protests and that is why it can be considered as a safe place to travel.
