5 Reasons to Visit Koh Phangan Island in Thailand - Experience an Entrancing Island!

There are many reasons to visit Koh Phangan in Thailand which offers an idyllic island escape; these include enjoying pristine beaches, snorkelling and diving, taking a boat tour, experiencing holistic spa rituals and so on.


To swim, snorkel and dive

At Koh Phangan, you will find as much as 45 km of shoreline and more than twenty lovely beaches. This means that there will be a beach for 'everyone', including those where you may be one of only a few visitors present. Naturally, you will have the opportunity to sunbathe to your heart's content at these shores, with shady trees also sometimes being present. Snorkelling would be a great activity at Koh Phangan as the waters are relatively warm and perfectly clear; there will also be plenty of fish and other sea creatures to observe. You will also have the opportunity to dive in the local waters and possibly encounter creatures like whale sharks.


To take a boat tour

Another interesting experience to be enjoyed in Koh Phangan would be taking an island boat tour. Such tours would be a relaxing experience and will also provide you with the opportunity to enjoy lovely views of the surrounding natural scenery. These tours will also take you to the finest snorkelling spots in Koh Phangan. At these locations, you will be able to admire abundant attractive corals and vibrantly coloured fish. You will also have the chance to hire a longtail boat for a trip to a secluded beach or even for a private tour of your choice.


To enjoy massages and spa treatments

Koh Phangan would also be a great place to enjoy an invigorating massage. Many of the island's masseurs are highly skilled and will be pleased to provide you with a traditional Thai massage which will include remedial massage, deep tissue massage, acupressure and yoga stretching. Such massages will leave you refreshed and energised, while you will also have the chance to enjoy a range of other spa treatments on the island. An accommodation choice to consider where you may enjoy massages and holistic spa therapies would be Anantara Rasananda Koh Phangan Villas which may be regarded as an attractively located beach resort in Koh Phangan.


To visit the temples

In Koh Phangan, you may also visit some of the island's tranquil temples. Such sacred sites have a significant place in Thai culture and provide fascinating insights. Highlights would include Wat Pho which also offers a steam room and massage facilities as well as Wat Phu Kao Noi which would be a great place to practice meditation. At Koh Phangan's temples, visitors will also encounter exquisite architecture, interesting sculptures and statues and attractive gardens.


To undertake a motorbike tour

If you have experience in riding a motorcycle or scooter, you can rent one of these two-wheelers and explore Koh Phangan independently. By doing so, you will be able to view all the different bays, beaches and typical Thai villages on the island. A motorbike tour will be an enthralling experience as you ride through the verdant jungle, visit temples and get to meet locals too. Through travelling by motorcycle, you will also have the chance to swim and enjoy lunch at numerous beaches, visit markets and make day trips to experience the island's other captivating attractions.
