Satun

Satun, Satun Province, Thailand

A sleepy, little town that carries the same name as the province, Satun is not a heavily touristic area.  For most travelers, they would not even know where it is on the map. For me, the first time I heard of the region, I was thinking Saturn, the planet with the rings.  Well, it might as well be like Saturn because running into other travelers is about as frequent as close encounters of the third kind.  The far southern region of Thailand does not get the glitz and glamour like its cousins slightly to the north--Phuket, Krabi, and Ko Samui.
