10 THINGS TO DO IN KOH PHANGAN

Check out what you can do during your stay at Baan Siam

 Koh Phangan is best known for the monthly Full Moon Party in Haad Rin, but there is so much more to the island than the Party Zone!  Increasing numbers of families and tourists are coming here to enjoy the relaxed island lifestyle and beach life.  This means that there is no shortage of activities to keep you busy during your stay. There is something for all ages and interests – here’s a few of our favourites:

 

1. Muay Thai Training

There are several Thai boxing gyms on the island, but we can recommend our friends and neighbours at Muay Thai Chinnarach. A family-run, friendly gym with training for all abilities from beginners to experienced fighter.  It’s a great way to get fit, lose weight and meet new people!

 Most of Phangan’s tropical jungle is untouched, making it a great place to to go trekking.  Be warned – some of the walks can be tough as they are steep and the jungle is hot and humid – but they are great fun! Find out more about the island’s trekking routes. 

7. Visit a waterfall

The islands waterfalls are in their full glory after the rainy season in Oct-Dec.  However, they are still worth a visit all year round for the stunning natural scenery, especially Taan Sadet and Pheang waterfalls which are both set in national parks.
