Thailand is known as one of Asia’s most travelled destinations with sixteen million foreigners flying into the country each year. Thailand’s cultural integrity remains largely untouched and still holds its rich heritage, offering a traditional scene of the Thai farming village, fishing communities, Buddhist temples and amazing world heritage sites. Check out Koh Phangan for a stunning getaway!
What to do there?
Well, besides learning about the history of Thai, you can simply explore the surrounds by trying out the famous river boats and bicycles to sightsee the scattered temple ruins of Bangkok.
Cool off at the warm isolated beaches and experience boat riding, scuba diving and snorkelling at one of the many beaches. The soft powdery white sand and calm waters are ideal for a refreshing cocktail on the beachfront while enjoying the picture perfect sunset. Also, it’s no secret that Koh Phangan is host to the hottest full moon parties, beach bars and clubs … so if you’re in for a beachy night out and a non-stop party atmosphere, this place is a must!
And, of course, you can always spoil yourself with an amazing shopping experience at the markets, which feature hundreds of stalls selling anything and everything you can think of, making it super-easy for you to find great souvenirs.
