Koh Pha Ngan Tours, Vacation Packages & Travel Experiences
Koh Pha Ngan is an island found in Southeast Thailand. Located in the Gulf of Thailand, in Surat Thani Province, Koh Pha Ngan is situated between two sister islands – the larger Koh Samui to the south and Koh Tao to the north.
Covering an area of 168 sq kms, Koh Pha Ngan is a land of coconut trees, white sand beaches, and a mountainous interior, with the largest peak, Khao Ra sitting at 620 metres.
More than half of Koh Pha Ngan is designated as a national park, and 82 sq kms consists of rainforest, with plenty of flora and fauna, allowing for deep sea diving and snorkeling on a Thalland vacation.
Koh Pha Ngan, along with its sister islands and nearby islets, were thought to have been discovered many centuries ago by Muslim sea gypsies who came by boat from the Malay Peninsula. Koh Pha Ngan had since become a longtime favourite destination for past Thai kings, including King Rama V, who visited Koh Pha Ngan 14 times during his reign.
Koh Pha Ngan is famous for its Full Moon Party, an electronic dance music festival held every month at full moon in Haad Rin, in the island’s south end. This, along with other regular dance parties held during the month, attracts many backpackers to Koh Pha Ngan on trips to Thailand, some of whom also visit the island for its thriving retreat and meditation industry. In fact, many Buddhist temples can be found on the island.
Koh Pha Ngan has also started offering more family-friendly tourist experiences, further promoting the island’s natural attractions, including water activities, adventure tours and various elephant camps.
With so many attractions offered by this island, and only 15km from Koh Samui, Koh Pha Ngan makes an ideal day or stopover excursion for those looking for a fun and relaxing experience on Thailand tours.
