Situated near the center of the SamuiArchipelago, Kohpanganis perfectly located near top locations like Ang Thong archipelago and Koh Tao. Nearby Ang Thong archipelago is composed of more than 40 tiny islands, with many natural caves and surrounded by crystal clear water. Situated about 18 km north of Samuiin the Gulf of Thailandis the island of Koh Phangan. Being generally much more quieter and laid back than Samui, only with the exception of the FullMoon party that attracts every month between 5 - 10,000 visitors arrive for the over crowded full moon on the east side beachof HaadRin. The cheapest type of transportation from BKK to Phanganis to get yourself a joint ticket from Songserm Travel for boats and speed boats, bus, train, airplanes to Phangan. Or you can fly an 60 minute flight operated by Bangkok Airways every few hours from BKK to Samui and catch the catamaran speed boat to the island. The southeastern part of Ko Phangan is the main party area including Haad Rin and the fullmoon party beach. Nearly all of the area around Haad Rin is mountainious making most of the beautiful white beachesunaccessable by road, the only way to get to them is by long tail boat from HaadRin.
The only exemption from the otherwise relaxing and quite island is the Fullmoon when the east side of island offers you a variety of restaurants, bars and cafes catering Thai, International, Danish, Mexican and Mediterranean dishes, something to suit everyone. And naturally of it's location a large choice of fresh seafood which is locally caught. Here are many very options for Koh Phangan's beachesand nearly all of them are able to book online with this website.
