Next to Koh Samui and home to the Full Moon Party
Koh Phangan is an Island located roughly 15 km from Koh Samui. The Island is famous for its full moon party hosted in Haad Rin beach and as a huge back packers destination. Known as an island of coconut groves it is a tropical paradise not nearly as built up as its sister island Koh Samui. There are numerous hotel options for every one from budget hostels through to luxury resorts located all over the island. Most beaches are fairly quite apart from a few, such as Thong Sala (the islands capital) and Haad Rin.
Like many of the islands in Thailand, Koh phangan has little means of transportation. Songthaews and long tail boats serve as Koh Phangans taxi, they are not hard to come across however they are not metered and can sometimes be quite expensive if you wish to visit many different places around the island. Renting a motorbike can make things very easy, the roads on the island are not too bad as long as you stick to the main road, this road follows the whole way round the island. There are plenty of shops selling gasoline around the island too. I would recommend renting a bike from your hotel or asking them if they know any good shops nearby as not all rental shops are trustworthy. Once you have picked up a bike it is very easy to pick up a map and plan out where you would like to go.
Here are some recommendations on what to see:
