About Koh Phangan

Thai Fishing Boat

Koh Phangan is located in the Southern Gulf of Thailand. It’s part of the Samui archipelego and is a short boat ride from the popular island of Koh Samui.  It’s also close to Koh Tao, which offers some of the finest dive sites in Asia.

The island is ringed by beautiful beaches and our central location makes Baan Siam a great base for exploring the whole island.  Phangan is best known for it’s Full Moon Parties but away from the bustle of the night-life in Haad Rin, you’ll find the rest of the island to be quiet and peaceful with a low-key,  relaxed night-life.

Dine out on fresh seafood, enjoy a sunset drink at a beach bar, visit Thong Sala’s markets for some authentic local food, learn a new skill or get fit!  Increasingly popular with long-term visitors, it’s a great base for digital nomads, freelancers,  families and more!
