The beautiful island of Koh Phangan offers white sand beaches, evergreen mountains, waterfalls and of course, full moon parties.
The island is located in the gulf of Thailand, it is in between Koh Tao and Koh Samui, one of the eastern trio islands and the only way to travel there is to go on water. The most common way to travel to Koh Phangan (or Koh Pha Ngan) from Bangkok is to get a bus to Surattani or Chumpon pier then transfer to a ferry. You can also travel by train to Surattani and Chumpon as well. Another way is to get a flight and transfer to a pier to catch a ferry; this is by far the fastest option.
From a remote stretch of sand on the west of the island to the crowded beach of Haad Rin, you will taste several different atmospheres throughout the island. There is a great choice of things do while staying here; whether you're looking to party, wind down with a spot of yoga, or simply lie on the beach and ride out a hangover.
Full Moon Party
Once up on a time, there was a man with guitar who loved sitting on a beach by a bonfire, playing music with his friends under the light of the a moon. He and his friends would gather at the beach every full moon and, over time, more and more people would join to jam and enjoy the party. The man left the island but the vibe remained. We never knew who the man was and he never knew what he created. What started with a small bonfire beach party is now known around the world as one of the biggest beach parties in the world: The Full Moon Party.
