Island in Thailand
Ko Pha Ngan is an island in southeast Thailand that’s renowned for its monthly Full Moon Party. This boisterous night-long celebration, which is tied to the lunar calendar, draws revelers to its southeastern peninsula, Haad Rin. Most festivities center on Sunrise Beach, whose beach bungalows attract a backpacker crowd. On the north coast lie quieter, white-sand beaches including Hat Khuat and Hat Thiani
Koh Phangan is Thailand’s fifth biggest island. Located just 12km north of Koh Samui, Phangan does not have an airport and relies on ferries from the mainland and Koh Samui.
