About

www.phanganaccommodation.net/information is intended as a resource to help people to find answers to questions that they might have about Koh Phangan in Thailand. It is an island that has been hosting visitors from all over the world since the 1970s. It has its own special character and has developed differently to the neighboring islands of Koh Samui and Koh Tao.

For some Koh Phangan is a magical island full of perfect white sand beaches, many of which are hidden from the world. It is a place to relax, to experience the dream of living on a tropical beach surrounded by pristine nature. For others Koh Phangan is the party island – a place with the Full Moon Party, Half Moon Party, Black Moon Party, Shiva Moon Party, Love:Is etc. It is a place to go wild on the beach or in the jungle to the sounds of psy-trance and hard progressive house. For others Koh Phangan is an adopted home; a chance for a new life.

For the original Koh Phanganers it is an island that produces coconuts, that has a fishing industry; that is suitable for growing crops such as gum trees. It is a place that they now must share with ever-swelling numbers of outsiders both from elsewhere in Thailand and from abroad. The popularity of Koh Phangan has been both good and bad for those who were born on Koh Phangan.

Part of the remit of this website is to bring all these points of view together.

It is also to give the latest information about what is happening on Phangan Island. What businesses are opening, what businesses are closing; what is hot and what is not. It is to provide reviews of services, restaurants, bars, hotels and resorts; all with an eye to promoting the island; to show what it has to offer, and as I wrote in the beginning to reveal the special character of the island.
