Christines stay in stunning Koh Phangan in Thailand....not all about Full Moon Parties

Thailand is one of our fav destinations, home to fascination culture, scenery, beaches, people and food. Thailand has plenty of island paradises and one of our favourites is Koh Phangan. Christine spent a few days here and loved it! 

'I was on a trip around Thailand and spent some time on Thailand east coast. Koh Phangan, just to the north of Koh Samui, is renowned for its monthly Full Moon parties, but away from the partying there’s a beautiful island that makes a perfect hideaway destination. 

Adjacent to Koh Samui, Koh Phangan is reached by boat from her neighbour, taking around 90 minutes in total to travel from the main areas of Koh Samui to the resorts of Koh Phangan. Koh Samui airport has regular flight connections from around Thailand.

With over half the Island being a national park there’s plenty to explore with a hilly interior and coastline dotted with fishing villages, plus it’s a great spot for diving too. Koh Phangan makes an ideal destination for total relaxation, and twins perfectly with nearby Koh Samui.

I spent a few days exploring the island and have to say it I found it to be a great island to chillout and get away from it all. If you're a party animal, then schedule your stay on the island to coincide with one of the Half or Full Moon parties, personally they sound all too lively for me! 

Escape Worldwide can offer plenty of holiday ideas to Koh Phangan. Combining Koh Phangan and Koh Samui is easy, and we’d recommend at least a night on Koh Samui before visiting Koh Phangan.

There are some stunning resorts on the island and I was fortunate enough to stay at the stunning Santhiya Koh Phangan which is set on a stunning beach, with good quality accommodation and a couple of stunning swimming pools! 

Koh Phangan is well worth a stay for a few nights and also including Bangkok in to your itinerary is easy, while other areas of Thailand such as Chiang Mai and Phuket are possible, via Samui.
