is one of the idyllic islands which lies to the north of Koh Samui in the gulf of Thailand but has not reached the developmental stage of Koh Samui yet. It is more rustic and laid back. This makes Koh Phangan appeal to many tourists. It is about two-thirds the size of Koh Samui with a mix of sandy coves and rugged forested interior.
Two-thirds of the Island is taken up by a long mountain ridge which is covered with a dense tropical rain forest and still relatively unexplored. On one side of Koh Phangan, the mountains drop steeply into the sea while on the other side has picturesque bays with snowy white sandy beach. Koh Phangan is also very famous for its Full Moon Party, for which people and DJs come from over the world every month. Several tables are set upon Haad Rin and thousand of lamps are lit. You will find all kinds of music here.
