Our lovely island of Koh Phangan is popular amongst young people for its hippy hedonistic vibe and also in recent years has become a go to place for families and young professionals wanting an affordable tropical escape.
The thing which has made Koh Phangan famous is its Full Moon Party, an event which has happened once a month for the last 30 years or so. It takes place on Haad Rin Beach and attracts around 30,000 people each month!
As well as the Full Moon Party there are other Parties and Events which take place a few days before, afterwards and then smaller ones throughout the whole month.
Koh Phangan is one of the top destinations in the world to come and do Yoga and Healing, as of 2003 one of the biggest yoga centres opened its main campus here followed by many more schools which attracts visitors from all over the world.
For such a small island, Koh Phangan offers many Tours and Attractions to suit whatever you may like to do. One of the main attractions would have to be the nature of the island itself, with 70-80% of the land being protected you can experience untouched jungle and pristine beaches.
As with the whole country of Thailand, Koh Phangan offers you local and global cuisine for your Eating and Drink experience.
With the growing number of families choosing to move permanently to Phangan the island has become a child friendly place for both long and short term. There is an international school which has helped immensely with this and a good community who organise events for Kids.
The magic island of Koh Phangan attracts many creative beings who come to share their skills of Art and Fashion along with the traditional artwork of Thailand. The island seems to inspire creativity and you can see street art, murals, fashion shows and lots of jewelry and crafts in the shops and at the markets.
Koh Phangan Life can be placed into different sections; Yoga, Party, Diving, Nature, Locals, Tourists, but all in all it is a very relaxed place to be. Everyone here is laid back and happy, lots of Phangan locals have been here all their life and have big families and many businesses and there are also many expats who thrive here through hard work opening their own businesses too.
