Ko Pha-ngan Surat Thani Thailand
Full Moons and Exploring: Koh Phangan (4 days. Half of which will be spent trying to remember who you are) Ok, so this addition doesn’t quite fit into the rough trail I’ve created. To get over to Koh Phangan from Krabi is quite a journey (6 hours but will probably take longer) and you will get squeezed into tourist buses that resemble hot tin cans. The island is infamous for Full Moon Parties which you’ll either love or hate (Alex and I loved it…) but why not add it to your Bucket List? The Full Moon Party is huge, disorientating, fun, wild and confusing. Buckets, fluro body paint, pumping beats – you get the picture! Don’t stay on Haad Rin if you don’t want to have music blasting till your ears bleed (although the food is amaze) and choose to reside on the otherside of the island. Haad Yao or Haad Salad are better alternatives with relaxed vibes and reggae cafes. Wander the long endless beaches and indulge in sandy massages, with a dose of secretive beach bars. Koh Phangan really provides a balance of crazed party times and relaxed exploring!
About Surat Thani
Next morning we caught the first flight out to Surat Thani and from there took a bus to the pier for a launch crossing to the idyllic island of Koh Samui. There are counters at the arrivals hall in the airport itself which allow you to purchase 2-in-1 tickets (bus and ferry) which makes life very easy.
