Koh Phangan is an island in the Gulf of Thailand in South East Thailand, and located in Surat Thani province. It is famous for its full moon party at Haad Rin Beach and as a backpackers destination but not only. Ko Phangan has two sister islands: the larger Ko Samui to the south and the smaller Ko Tao to the north,favorite for snorkeling and scuba diving spots.
The tourist area are in the South of the island, and the North ,where I lived a few days,was a quiet place but very nice with beautiful scenery.
I went there with plain,bus and ferry boat. I took the plane from Don Muang Airport - Bangkok,with Air Asia,cheap flights but very ok,and then the bus to port and then the ferry boat to the island Koh Phangan.
