The cheapest type of transportation from BKK to Koh Phangan is to get joint tickets from Songserm Travel Center for ferry and express boats, buses, train, planes to the island. Another option is to get an 1 hr. flight operated by Bangkok Airways daily from Bangkok to Koh Samui and take the catamaran boat to Phangan.
Ko Phangan has many undeveloped beachesand coves, a few of them are only accessible by a treck through jungle paths or by taking a taxi boat.
Some of the more popular accommodations, like for example Baan Busaba are frequently fully booked in high season. Probably a good tip would be to reserve a place in a resortin advance.
Weather in the Kingdom of Thailandis highly tropic, high temperature and wet. The climate are influenced by monsoons that create three distinct weather seasons in southern Siam and two different seasons in Southern part of the Kingdom of Thailand. The southwest monsoon occurs approx May to October is warm and many clouds, in the north-east monsoon in November to March is rainless and relatively low temperature.
In case you are searching for a good place to stay at Koh Phangan is just another destination for budget traveler or Haad Rin beach. But Phangan lovers? Well, there are a lot of reasons to visit Phangan. Even it is quite small in size many types of visitors can discover their own place on Phangan. In my opinion, you should definitely consider visiting Koh Phan Gan.
Kohpangan was before the backpackers heaven, currently a 'more mixed range' of visitors come to the resorts and alternative yogaresorts.
