Oh Koh Phangan. You were quite the treat that ended in me spraining my ankle. After an overnight bus to Surat Thani and a two hour ferry ride, I arrived in Koh Phangan. In between Koh Samui and Koh Tao, Koh Phangan is a popular destination and famous for it's Fullmoon and Halfmoon Festival. I spent three days here and had an absolute blast.
I stayed at Echo Beach Backpackers
Hostel and am so happy I picked this one. The hostel is really chill and just a bunch of young travelers. I met some really great people and ended up spending the majority of my time at the hostel.
I was a bit knackered when I arrived so I chilled out on the beach my first day. My second day was spent at the Infinity Beach Club, which had an unreal pool. That night, I went to the Halfmoon Festival and it was such a great experience. In the middle of the jungle, this festival takes place. Wish I took more pictures but they probably wouldn't do any justice! There were different dance floors along the jungle with different types of music. Really cool and would definitely go back again if I could!
My last day I really wanted to head up north to a different beach but alas, I'm a huge spazz. I sprained my ankle so tended to it for the day at the hostel. I definitely want to come back to Koh Phangan and explore the other two islands as well. When I go back, I would also love to see Krabi, Phuket and the Koh Phi Phi islands. So until next time Koh Phangan!
Just traveling the world and sharing my adventures and experiences.
