The fullmoon party is over and the sun has set on Had Rinyou will be surprised to notice how very much more the island has to show to visitors.
Koh Phangan is one of the country's amazing tropical gems. Blessed with golden beachesand hidden bays, visitors from many different countries come back year after year to experience the unique feeling of the island.
Weather in the Kingdom of Thailandcan be extremely tropical, high temperature and humid. The weather changes are influenced by monsoons that make three distinguishable weather seasons in southern Thailandand two differing seasons in south-central Siam. The south-west monsoon occurs approx May to Oct is rainy and many clouds, in the north-east monsoon around Nov to Mar is rainless and relatively low temperature.
The south eastern part of Kohpangan is the main partyarea which includes HaadRin and the fullmoon party beach. Most of the area surrounding HadRin is mountains making most of the fantastic sandy beachesunable to reach by road, the only way to get to them is by boat from HaadRin. Koh Phangan is fullwith stunning beaches and stunning natural beauty, the island attracts tourists from everywhere.
looking for a not bad accommodation on Phangan, I would like to suggest you Holiday BeachResort, not far from Thongsala, the main hub of Phangan. At this location you can enjoy an easy access to food markets, banks, money exchange or Tesco Lotus.
Fullmoonstarted with a few backpackers having a beachparty on Haad Rin East Side in the late 80's. They had a beach partyin the shining moonlight and more a more backpackers turned up every month. Nowadays there are a estimated number of 7000-15000 people who are having a good time and enjoying a partyto disco, disco, and many different other sound styles.Skilled DJ's playing the beats from the bars at Haad Rin Nok and from the beach.
Even Koh Pha-ngan was at the beginning visited by travelers about twentytwo years ago, the island was actually inhabited already about two thousand years ago by sea gypsies originating from the area today called malaysia. Koh Phangan was then swarmed by chinese refugees most of them originating from the chinese province Hainan fleeing the economic hardship in their country.
As a natural eden-like place in the South-central Gulf of Siam, Phanganserves as the ideal getaway retreat.
