Koh Phangan (also spelled Ko Pha Ngan) is really the island of freedom. It is a relaxed oasis in the Gulf of Thailand with some of the best beaches in the entire southeastern Thailand.
Accommodation is available in cozy resorts or beach side hotel to very reasonable prices. If you are into dancing and partying, one of the largest beach parties in the world is arranged here - The Full Moon Party
Party, Relaxation or Both?
Some people think Koh Phangan is a destination only for backpackers or young people enjoying the Full Moon Party on Had Rin every month. But this is a large island and the party is just a small part of what it has to offer.
If relaxing in a hammock or reading a good book is more your type of holiday activity, this island is perfect as well. If you are into meeting friends from the whole world and having a really good time, Phangan is also the place to be.
Koh Phangan has repeatedly been voted as one of the very top destinations in Thailand in newspaper and internet polls. Give it a try and find out for yourself!
We will not lay down in a hammock in 2013, but continue our ambition to make a user-friendly, complete and accurate guide to the island of Phangan. We will add more text and articles, new images and new accommodation offers. Our visitors are always in focus!
