If you are travelling in Thailand from South to North one of the first stops is probably Koh Lanta, a beautiful island on the west coast. It is known to be a paradise for hippies, party people and artists.
The entire Klong Khong Beach is lined with Hippie Bars, that create a warm atmosphere with colourful lights and chilled music at nighttime. During the day you can do a roundtrip over the island with a scooter and visit the national park or some lovely beaches. Not being infected by the hippie vibes, three days are enough to see the highlights of the island.
The buses are usually Mini Vans with space for up to 14 people. The last Minivan will bring you to the ferry station in Donsak. As soon as you are getting off the Van, you will get your ferry ticket. The ferry to Koh Phangan is quite big, no chance to get seasick. :D And you will have an amazing view of Thailand's mainland and islands.
For all the romantic people: The sunset is going to be breathtaking! Arriving in Koh Phangan two hours later, it will be already dark. But there are taxis all over, that will bring you to your accommodation. Don't even try to haggle, the taxi drivers have their price lists set up. Having a good sleep after a day of travelling is important! Then you will have new power to start exploring Koh Phangan on the next day! The island has beautiful waterfalls, a lot of peaceful, clean beaches and for sure many nice people, that will go party with you at night time.
