Surat is located in India in the Gujarat region. About 5,807,000 inhabitants live in the South Asian metropolis of millions.
Surat is located in the northern hemisphere of the Earth, about 2357 km north of the equator at latitude 21 and about 7483 km east of the prime meridian, at the 73rd longitude.
Surat Thani is the largest province of southern Thailand, about 12,800 square kilometers in size. On its long coastline, the gentle waves of the Gulf of Thailand splash. The provincial capital of the same name is located 685 kilometers south of Bangkok.
Surat Thani can boast of some of the most beautiful islands in Thailand, such as the island of Koh Samui. Thailand’s third largest island, as big as Penang, is a palm-fringed gem in a glittering archipelago that includes the fascinating 250-square-kilometer Angthong (golden bowl) Marine National Park.
Surat Thani once belonged to the legendary and mysterious Mahayana Buddhist kingdom of Srivichaya, which ruled the Malay Peninsula and most of Java 1,500 years ago, and perhaps the city was even its center. The story of Srivichaya goes back mainly to the records of the Chinese wandering monk I Ching, who visited the empire after a pilgrimage to India at the end of the 7th century. Excavations in the Chaiya district suggest a glorious state being.
