THE HIDDEN HAVEN OF THAILAND
Koh Phangan has been a hidden haven for the discerning tourist and budget backpacker since the 60's. People found their way to Koh Phangan largely through word of mouth until the 1990's, when the full moon parties introduced this pristine island to the wider world. Once visitors found the sparkling waters, the calm, laid-back way of life, the gorgeous sunsets and moonrises, and the lush beauty of the interior, Koh Phangan became the must-see destination for the worldly tourist in the world.
