6 Amazing Reasons to Visit Koh Phangan - Be Mesmerised by Koh Phangan

Koh Phangan is a delightful place that has something for everybody as it has a diverse number of things to do and places to see.



There is no doubt that Koh Phangan is one of the best locations in Thailand to go diving. There are many locations from which you can go diving or even snorkelling depending on your requirement. Even if you are not an experienced diver there are locals who have set up businesses around the coastline that can guide you and assist you throughout your first time experience in diving. Diving is a rewarding experience as you get to witness exotic fish in their natural habitat.


Night Markets

Visiting the night markets in Koh Phangan is on the top of the list of things to do on Koh Phangan. The markets bring the city alive at night as there are so many different things you can do in and around the night markets. If you like looking at locally sourced products that are made in Koh Phangan itself the night markets are the perfect place to go to. There are so many different stalls including fruits, vegetables, fish, souvenirs, trinkets, postcards of Koh Phangan and Thailand and stalls that sell street food. The street food stalls are the most popular among all other stalls as you get to snack on bite-sized food while you walk around.



If you love the great outdoors, the pristine wooded lands and the sounds of birds and buzzing bees then you will definitely fall in love with the many trekking routes that are available in Koh Phangan. There are tracks which are quite popular so the footpath has been built naturally hence, these are not tedious treks. However, there are some treks which are quite a task as they are not frequently visited and you need to pave your way as you advance.


Boat trips

Being an island Koh Phangan is covered by the Indian Ocean and the boat rides around the island allow one to view the natural beauty of the city from afar. You get to see the mountains and forests that make up most of the island and the beautiful architecture that enhances the beauty. The boat rides are a romantic trip at night as you get to see the stars above you reflecting on the water. Anantara Rasananda Koh Phangan Villas are able to arrange boat trips on request.


Time at the beach

If you visit Koh Phangan and do not spend some time at the beach you have not been able to witness Koh Phangan to its best. The stunning beaches with the crystal white sands and turquoise blue water are not only a treat to the eyes but also a great place to relax and wind-down. While you are basking in the sun, taking in the view of the horizon of the Indian Ocean you get to treat yourself to some delightful food from the shops located around the coastline.


Full Moon Party

The full moon party is one of the most famous attractions in Koh Phangan. It is said that people make plans to come to the island for the Full Moon Party to be able to drink and dance and have a good time.
