Lying around 12 miles north of Koh Samui in the Gulf of Siam is the island of Koh Phangan. Being generally much more quieter and relaxed than Samui, only with the exception of the full moon beach island for the famous accommodation at Haad Yao High Life, all of the rooms are serviced regular and as one of the first places on Phangan they uphold the standards expected from visitors. Koh Panghanis situated in a amazing paradiseinfringed with postcard like palms and green turquoise waters.
There are lots of ways to move around on the island, you can hire one of the taxi cab for a small amount of money,or you are experienced enough you can hire a chopper or motor car and do it in your own time frame. If you like to dine out then the island offers you a variety of places to eat, bars and cafes catering Thai, International, Mexican, Danish and Mediterranean dishes, that suit everyone. And naturally of it's location a large selection of fresh seafood which is locally caught.
