The Thai island of Koh Phangan is always an interesting destination offering must-visit places such as Thong Sala Night Market, the Challenge Phangan Waterpark, Kuan Yin Temple and so on.


Thong Sala Night Market

The popular Thong Sala Night Market should undoubtedly be on your Koh Phangan itinerary. At this vibrant marketplace, you will find pleasant and friendly vendors waiting patiently for customers beside their newly made local foods; you may well find that these delectable culinary offerings are tastier than their costlier equivalents in cities like Bangkok.

Irrespective of whether you happen to be a meat-lover or a vegetarian, you will not be disappointed by the dishes available at this night market.


The Challenge Phangan Waterpark

For plenty of water activities and unlimited thrills, make your way to the Challenge Phangan Waterpark. This appealing establishment specialises in water obstacle courses that will get the heart pumping and the adrenaline flowing. Here, you can put your abilities and skills to the test as you attempt to complete the challenging and invigorating course in the shortest time possible. As you negotiate the course, you will encounter various obstacles such as stepping stones, rope swings, rolling barrels, monkey bars, balance beams and more. This waterpark will challenge your abilities whilst also providing some enjoyable exercise at the same time!


Thong Nai Pan Yai / Thong Nai Pan Noi

You will find that this pair of coves are regarded amongst Koh Phangan's finest natural attractions. At this picturesque double bay, you will encounter beautiful natural scenery that is bound to capture your interest. It would be a good idea to take a camera along as you visit these attractions as you will encounter plenty of great photo opportunities here; both coves are idyllic in appearance with their softly curving sandy bays. A choice of accommodation to consider from which you could easily visit these coves and engage in other captivating things to do on Koh Phangan would be the pleasingly located Anantara Rasananda Koh Phangan Villas.


Kuan Yin Temple

The splendid Kuan Yin Chinese Temple would be an interesting sightseeing attraction in Koh Phangan that will capture the imagination of anyone who appreciates religious sites. You will see that this temple consists of seven separate buildings with each being attractive in its own right. Some of them also offer scenic views over the surrounding countryside as well as Chaloklum Bay. Within the temple compound, you will also find colourful pagodas, an eye-catching 'dragon drum', wind chimes and a sizable golden Buddha statue.


Phaeng Waterfall

The well-known Phaeng Waterfall would be another of Koh Phangan's outstanding natural attractions being counted amongst the island's biggest waterfalls. However, you should keep in mind that this waterfall is best viewed following significant rainfall during the monsoon season. You will find that this waterfall features two levels with numerous tracks extending to viewpoints on the mountain as well. It also has the advantage of being readily accessible to visitors making it worth adding to your itinerary.
