Chances are that nothing bad will happen to you during your time on Koh Phangan but it is very wise to be prepared for an emergency in any Country you travel to.
It may not be yourself in an emergency situation, you may come across something that needs urgent attention or in any case there are a few numbers you should add to your phone right now.
