As a natural eden-like island in the Southern Gulf of Siam, Koh Phan Gan attracted an steady growing amount of visitors. More of them somehow find their way back every year to the island. What kind of people are those Island enthusiasts? Well, there are a lot of reasons why one should visit the island. Even it is quite small in geographical terms many kinds of visitors can discover their own niche on the island. In my opinion, you should definitely think about visiting Ko Phangan.
Lying only 12 miles north of Samuiin the Gulf of Thailandis the island of Koh Phangan. Being generally much more quieter and relaxed than Samui, with the exception of the full moon beach party where every month between 5 - 10,000 visitors come on the island for the over crowded fullmoon party in Haad Rin Nok.
A lot of people consider the island is only a destination for backpackersor young people enjoying the Fullmoon Party on Haad Rin beach. But this is a large island and Fullmoon is just a relative small part of Phangan.
