In the last 20 years, Ko Phangan attracted an enormous number of holiday makers. More of them religiously find their way back each holiday to the small paradise. What kind of people are those Phanganlovers? Actually, there is lot of reasons why one should visit Koh Phangan. Even it is tiny in size many kinds of visitors can discover their own place on the island. In my opinion, you should definitely consider visiting Koh Phan Gan.
