Surrounded by clear waters, Koh Phangan has naturally become in the recent a scuba diverstop destination in Thailand. At the moment, the island developed into a tourist travel destination and tourists from every corner of the globe to visit the place. Lying around 18 km from the northern side of Koh Samui in the Gulf of Siam is the island of Koh Phangan. The Island is much quieter and relaxed than Koh Samui, only with the exception of the Full Moon beach party where every month a estimated number of 5 - 10,000 visitors come on the island for the infamous full moon in Haad Rin Nok. When the Fullmoon Party has ended and the sun has set on Had Rin you will be flabbergasted to see how much more the island has to show to visitors. On contrary, as Phangan has much to show the interested visitor than just being a mad never ending party island, there is also a tranquil area, offering the privacy of a secluded resort with long walks, relaxation therapy and different day time activities. Kohpanganhas to offer many popular things to do one being snorkeling at most of Kohphanganbays, one beachin particular is in the northeastern tip at Koh Ma. Phangan used to be a backpackersdestination, but since quite a time a different type and a mixed range of tourists visits the island. One thing many of them have in common, they want to search a nice and easy going place. One exemption could be the Full moon party when the place changes into a dancefloor. Weathercondition in Thailandis very equatorial, high temperatureand damp. The season changes are designed by monsoons which create three distinguishable climateseasons in Northern and Central Siam and 2 other seasons in Southern Siam. In the south monsoon happens around May to Oct is rainy and the sky is cloud covered, the northeast monsoon approx Nov to March is rainless and relatively low temperature. Koh Panghanis a beautiful tropical island, protected by gentle sloping coral reefs and green clad mountain range towering above the beaches. There are concrete roads to Had Rin, but we have warned you that the roads are not in the greatest state and unless you are a competitant motorcycle driver then don't attempt to get to HaadRin, as nearly all accidents involving scooters happen in this area. Our advice is to leave your motorbike at the 7/11 at BaanTai and pay approx 40 Baht for a pickup over the mountains to HaadRin. Phangan was first discovered by backpackersmore than 20 years ago, Phangan was before inhabited for more than two thousand years ago by sea gypsies coming from Malaysia. Koh Phangan was some time later settled by chinese refugees most of them originating from Hainan fleeing the economic hardship in their country. One of the easiest type of transportation from BKK to Phangan would be to get tickets from Songserm Travel Center for boats and speed boats, bus, railway, airplanes to Koh Phangan. Or you can fly an 1 hr. flight by Bangkok Airways daily from Bangkok to Samuiand catch the speed boat to the island.
