Surin is a town in Southern Isaan, Thailand.
Surin is the capital of Surin province. Its population is small, approximately 40,000, but bear in mind that the province itself is densely populated. It is about 450 kilometers east from Bangkok and 50 kilometers from the Cambodian border. A quiet town, its one claim to fame is its annual Elephant Roundup, which takes place in November (book a room in advance). Surin is well known, locally and international, for its elephants. The gigantic animal of Surin impresses everyone with loveliness, cleverness and creates a unique character of the province. Surin's people have a long relationship with elephants which has become an icon of the province. Plenty of Khmer Ruins, beautiful silk and famous jasmine rice also make Surin an interesting destination.
