Electricity is back on Koh Samui and Phangan after engineers spent the night successfully restoring electricity, reports said. 

Having been without power for three days, residents and tourists on the two islands in Surat Thani woke up with electricity back on at their homes, hotel rooms and businesses.

Channel 3 reported that power was restored at 4am on Friday, two hours after engineers tested the line connecting the islands with Surat Thani's mainland. The repairs finished at 2am, it added.
