Koh Phangan was before a backpackers destination, Nowadays a more mixed range of visitors arrives here. One thing most of them have in common is that they are all looking for a relaxed and easy-going island.

One exemption from the relaxed atmosphere might be the Full Moon Party when Had Rin Nok transforms into a dance floor made of sand. If you don't want to participate at this very crowded event, or even listen to the music, don't worry! Koh Phangan is a relatively large island, so you can easily find a quiet and beautiful place here even when the moon is full.
