Ko Phangan vacations serve as an ideal escape for backpackers and other spontaneous travelers.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Thong Nai Pan Noi and Haad Yao Beach. The adventure continues: kick back and relax at Bottle Beach, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Wat Phu Khao Noi, explore the striking landscape of Thansadej Koh Phangan National Park, and get some thrills out on the water with a waterskiing or jet-skiing adventure.

To find maps, other places to visit, reviews, and tourist information, you can read our Ko Pha Ngan driving holiday planner.

Chennai, India to Ko Pha Ngan is an approximately 11.5-hour combination of flight and ferry. You'll lose 1.5 hours traveling from Chennai to Ko Pha Ngan due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Chennai in February, Ko Pha Ngan is a bit warmer at night with lows of 30°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Tue) early enough to travel to Bangkok.
