A free and wonderful pleasure at the same time! Koh Phangan has so many great beaches to explore every day. so it is a perfect pastime for low budget travelers. Even if the Secret Beach is no longer secret, it is still worthwhile to make a detour to this small bay. For snorkeling is also the Mae Haad Beach recommended.
As a low budget backpacker, you can save a lot of money when you avoid tourist restaurants and prefer to buy real street food. I never order toast for breakfast, but prefer tasty Thai food: it is healthier, makes you fuller and costs less. Before I treat myself to a delicious fruit shake, I compare the prices. In the Food Court on Koh Phangan, you get a good Fruit Shake right in the corner!
Of course, eating at the night market or at Thongsala Walking Street is also cheaper than at the restaurant. If you meet cool people in the hostel, you can go out together and share all the dishes to get to know many new delicious things. In Thai culture, food is always shared.
An excursion to the Than Sadet waterfall is perfect for getting some exercise and discovering the beautiful nature of Koh Phangan. Important for low budget travelers - there are no entry fees. A fresh cooling is free. At the moment, the water level is very low, but at the moment the color of the rocks is clearly visible and breathtakingly beautiful.
Are there any parties for low budget backpackers? Yes, luckily, Koh Phangan also has several good parties on Low Budget: Hollystone, Eden, Guy's Bar, Ban Sabai, Loi Lay Bar ... no entry fees, good music and relaxed people. Therefore, a great alternative to the Full Moon Party or Half Moon Party.
