About Koh Phangan

Koh Phangan is an island in the Gulf of Thailand located in South-East part of the country in Surat Thani Province. It can be easily reached from Bangkok within 14-16 hours by bus and the boat (650 Baht per person= $22) or by train and the boat (between 850 and 1000 Baht). The island is mostly famous for its Full Moon parties at Haad Rin Beach, amazing seafood and diving/snorkelling activities.  We explored the whole island by scooters going from one beach to another. The scenery is just breath-taking!  Here are the photos we took while being there for 4 days.

Anyone would like to swap with us? ;-)

    1. We were drinking fresh juices and shakes all day long :) Sending lots of love to you Kate with a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice :)

    Hi Agness, lovely postcards! What a beautiful island. Looks raw and idyllic. I love your food shots. They made me hungry. I particularly love the fred egg photo. It is pretty unique.

    1. Thank you Marisol. It is indeed a beautiful island, nice place to take some time off. The fried egg with sweet chilli sauce was amazing :)

  2. Beautiful pics as always! It’s getting cold here in Seoul, and today it’s very rainy…I wish I could transport there now! :p Btw what camera do you guys use?

    1. We’re going now to colder places too, so yes, we’ll miss the hot Thai weather. We use Canon 550D (me) and Sony NEX-3 (Agness). Happy travels!

  3. Lovely photos! A lot of people told us that Koh Phangan had been totally ruined by the Full Moon parties and tourists, but we went a few months ago and it was absolutely stunning! We also rented a scooter, and just spent a few days exploring the island – it truly was paradise.

    1. That’s right, the scenery cannot be changed by the parties. Although they certainly have an influence (I think a negative one) on the local community. We also rented a scooter, but I crashed it :) We’ll write more about it soon
