What to see in Koh Phangan

Koh Phangan is the party island with the Full Moon Party and its variations, but it is also beautiful beaches, a forest with waterfalls and mountains offering wonderful walks and some interesting attractions . Attractions like Wat Khao Tham temple in the forest with a breathtaking view of the sunset or Wat Pho and its herbal sauna for a ridiculous price. Go in the land of the island, stroll on the east coast, you will discover that prior to be the magnet for partygoers, Koh Phangan is also and above all an island blessed by the nature.
I also listed at the end of the page some good tours, excursions and activities that you can do in Koh Phangan or from Koh Phangan. Click here to see them.

Must-visits in Koh Phangan

Koh Ma island

เกาะม้า
My opinion :
This small wild island, even if there are some bungalows, faces Koh Phangan and is connected to the main island at low tide by a sand bank. The picture of Koh Ma and this sandbank is probably one of the best known images of Koh Phangan. Kayaks can be rented to go around the island and its reef is also a nice spot for snorkeling.

Than Sadet Waterfall

ธารเสด็จน้ำตก
My opinion :
It is the most famous waterfall in Koh Phangan for its size, its many pools where you can bathe with water all year long or almost when the other waterfalls are dried several months a year and for its history with the Kings of Thailand and more particularly Rama V and Rama IX.

Other visits suggestions in Koh Phangan

  • Other waterfalls
    like Than Sadet or Thabn Prawet, a series of waterfalls
  • The fishermen village of Chakolum
  • Ang Thong National Marine Park
    The Ang Thong National Marine Park is an archipelago of about 42 islands offering breathtaking sceneries. All the islands are uninhabited and undeveloped except two: Koh Paluay, inhabited by gypsies of the sea and Koh Wua Talap where the park office and the bungalows for those who would like to spend the night there are located. There are also two lovely beaches, the Buaboke Cave and the most famous viewpoint of Ang Thong. The other must-see of any excursion in the park is Thale Nai, a beautiful emerald saltwater lake. Admission to the park costs 300 baht per person. All Koh Samui, Koh Phangan and Koh Tao agencies offer boat trips to the Ang Thong Marine Park with snorkeling and diving but it is Koh Samui which is the nearest island.
