Up the coast to the port town of Thong Sala you will find the largest village on Koh Phangan. It is compared to “the front” of Koh Phangan because it is the business center, government departments and the place to do the traditional activities of the villagers. Moreover, it is the transportation center.
There are piers that can take you to other near islands such as Koh Tao and Koh Nang Yuan. Most of other idyllic beaches can be reached by boat which can be hired in this port town. Close to the piers, there are restaurants, hotels, other accommodations and a number of travel agencies.
The local car and motorbike are at the service to take the journey around Koh Phangan. Other rental car services are next to the piers.
