Discover an Untouched Gem in the South
Sichon is a sleepy little town nestled on the Gulf of Thailand, approximately 1 hour by car from both Surat Thani and Nakhon Si Thammarat, or around 2 hours drive from Krabi. Off the typical tourist trail, Sichon provides a haven for those looking to escape the bustle of Thailand’s big cities and mainstream tourist attractions like Pattaya and Phuket.
Those who yearn to find local culture unchanged by time and tide will love exploring the friendly town that relies mainly on the fishing industry to survive. All day and night a stream of colourful fishing boats can be seen making their way in and out of the river mouth, bringing back the lifeblood of the community that supplies restaurants around Thailand.
Peace & Quiet and NO CROWDS!
Given the distance from any major city, you won’t find any large shopping malls, but you will find what we’re all looking for on a holiday in Thailand: clean quiet beaches with clear blue waters that are calm and inviting. The whole family can get involved with a wide range of activities available from boat hire to kite surfing and everything in between! A short trip from the town and beaches are some charming attractions including waterfalls and exciting mountain biking courses. Adventure is certainly around the corner for those who want to find it!
Just because Sichon is small doesn’t mean it’s lacking for the necessities of life, either. There is a large hospital in town with Western and English Speaking doctors, a major supermarket, convenience stores, restaurants and pharmacies. Anything you need you can find nearby.
