Kohpanganis a small tropical paradise, protected by gentle sloping coral reefs and green clad mountain range behind the beaches. looking for an acceptable place to stay at the island, we can offer you the Phrueksa Resort, close to Thongsala, the main hub of the island. From the resort guests will enjoy an unproblematic access to food markets, banks, money exchange and Tesco Lotus. Located about 12 miles from the northern side of Koh Samui in the Gulf of Thailandis the island of Koh Phangan. Being generally much more quieter and relaxed than Samui, just with the exception of the fullmoon party where around 5 - 10,000 visitors arrive for the over crowded fullmoon party on the east side beachof HaadRin. Like Koh Tao, Koh Phangan has enjoyed substantial increase in tourist arrival numbers and the island is well know its own right for its every month held notorious Full Moon Parties right at Haad Rin . Due to its huge party scene some people have dubbed Phangan the Ibiza of the east.
The place is approximately two and half hours away from Surat Thani Province and approximately forty five minutes from Samuiby ferry. The easiest way to travel from Bangkok to Koh Phanganis to buy tickets from Songserm Travel Center for boats and speed boats, bus, train, planes to Koh Phangan. Another option is to fly an 1 hr. flight by Bangkok Airways 6 times a day from BKK to Samuiand get the catamaran speed boat to the island. If relaxing in a hammock, taking a yoga class is your kind of vacation activity, Phangan Koh Phangan is just the right place. If you like to meeting people from the whole world and enjoing one of the frequent parties, this island is the place to be, as well.
Simmilar to it's neighbour island Koh Tao, this island was a while ago initially found by hippies looking for an escape from the commercialised island of Koh Samui and today, Phanganattracts tourists from all over the world. During the last 20 years, Koh Phan Gan attracted an growing number of visitors. Some of them religiously find their way back each holiday to the small paradise. Who are those Island enthusiasts? Actually, there are a lot of reasons to visit the island. Even it is quite small in size many kinds of tourists can explore their own place on Koh Phangan.
