Koh Phangan Holidays
Koh Phangan in Thailand can be as relaxing or as adventurous as you desire. Lounge on colourful hammocks, slung and tied between the islands’ palms and swaying in the sultry air, as your Koh Phangan holidays pass by in tropical bliss. Or, to pack your trip upon this wonderful little island with a little more punch, why not experience the full moon party on Haad Rin beach (consisting of two small beaches on the southern side of the island)? Try to coincide your visit for the monthly wild beach party and enjoy a few drinks (known as buckets) as you’re swathed in a moonlight glow. You’ll be partying all night as the tide comes and goes underfoot.

Interesting Facts About Koh Phangan

We recommend that visitors visit this wonderful island during its high season from December to March. You’ll notice that at this time the water levels are high and very clean, making for the perfect casual swimming conditions (it also helps that the Gulf of Thailand is so warm!). This brings us to the days between April and June – or, dry season – where shallow waters make it quite difficult to take a dip in the sea. However, visitors should be aware that the days after, between July and August, offer another high season after the dry temperatures when the water rises again and the weather stays rather pleasant.
