Ko Phangan travelogue picture
Kho Phangan is a little beautiful island in the gulf of Thailand. Near Kho Samui and Kho Tao, this little island is a realtivetly wild island in middle of a turistic boom nowadays. It´s easy to find cheap accomodations and relaxing beaches to stay. The party starts every full moon nights with beach parties with music, fire, drink and smoke or not ... it depends on you but anyway is fun.

Favourite spots:
There are also two temples, Wats, in the island but are nothing really special. Just the Wat Khao Tam have something particular cause you can stay there and learn something about budhism and naturist knowledge. There are some natural waterfalls inside the mountains.

What's really great:
What i found special is obviously the party time at the east coast beach of the island. Hat Rin beach is where you can find the bigger full moon parties but anyway all the month long have parties everynight at diferent beaches just read the posters at the threes!!

Sights:
To see or visit the waterfalls, highly recommended, or the temples, beaches, mountains, etc ... the best way is rent a motorbike.
It costs arround 150 Bahts for 24 hours of motorbike all around the island and go everywhere.
Get full the moto diposit of fuel will cost you 20 Bahts and be everytime sure that you have fuel or you will have problems.

Accommodations:
There are a lot of accomodation from cheap to luxury depending on your budget.
Everywhere there are great bungalows at first place on the beach.
Near Thong Sala (The capitol city of this island) there are some bungalows as Phangan Villa, Bamboo huts or first bay resort for 90 to 250 Bahts.
At Hat Rin there are a lot of accomodation for around 100 Bahts but is ever overcrowded.
I was at the Lipstick cabana for 125 Bahts in a pretty bungalow for 2 people.

Nightlife:
Wow! Pubs and clubs are usual everywhere all the villas, hotels, bungalows, etc have their own clubs but there are a lot everywhere in the island.
But the best is look for the beach party for the current night and go there.

Restaurants:
There are some italian pizzerias and mexican or european cuisine restaurants but forget it.
There are also some road restaurants really cheap where you can eat cheap and good.
You can also find good restaurants at your bungalows vilas and hotels that will be also cheap.
In Kho Phangan i found the best PAPAYA Shake!!!! mmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!!!!!!!

Other recommendations:
You can take a ferry and go to Kho Tao if you want to try the Scuba Diving.
In the Kho Tao, not so far from Kho Phangan, you can find great corals and natural sea life to enjoy.
