Koh Phagnan

A true island paradise, Koh Phangan is located in Southern Thailand, surrounded by the pristine waters of the Gulf of Siam.

While Koh Phangnan is, perhaps, best known for the world famous Full Moon Party, the island has so much more to offer.

From bamboo beach bungalows to luxurious resorts and spas and everything in between,this beautiful island has a place for all.

Koh Phangan remains true to its own style. Unlike some other tourist destinations in the South of Thailand, Koh Phangnan keeps the atmosphere of real Thailand.

Koh Phangnan makes an excellent location for a family holiday. The island's quieter pace and friendly atmosphere means everyone in the family can find something to do, from kayaking, snorkelling or even Muay Thai lessons. Or, if that sounds like too much work: find a quiet beach, tie up a hammock and soak up some sun while taking in some of the best ocean views anywhere in the world or treat yourself to an authentic Thai massage, right on the beach!
