Located inside the southern siamese Gulf of Thailand Phanganis the next island to the World renowned tourist destination of Samuithat get visited by over one million holiday seekers every year. Kho Phangan used to be the backpackersdestination, nowadays a 'more mixed range' of visitors travel here. But they all want to find a laid back and easy going place.
For those of the travelers who find Kho Samuia bit too expensive or much too much like a big city with too many construction sites, Kho Phangan is the a better place to chill in Thailand.
A lot of people have in mind that Phangan is only a destination for backpackers or young people mainly visiting the island because of the Fullmoon Party on Had Rin beach. But this is a large island and Had Rin is just a relative small part of it.
If you are searching for a reputable place to stay at Phangan, we can suggest you the Phrueksa Resort, close to Thong Sala, the biggest village on the place. From party is over and the next day begins in island has to offer.
Two of the most visited of the beaches, Chaloklum especially in high season are crowded with sun worshipers but there's also less visited, more hidden bays and beaches. Party is the world's best known beachparty, with international DJ's from across the globe lining up to get the honor of playing.
For a at a quite beach, please have a look at Haadtien bay a isolated bay, with just one resort.
