The Koh Phangan region
Koh Phangan is a lush tropical island paradise in the Gulf of Thailand, boasting unspoiled white sand beaches, azure seas and an unsullied jungle interior. Koh Phangan started as a back-door escape from its larger sister Koh Samui, but is now blooming into an international destination for tourists and travellers around the world. Although very popular, the island has yet to become highly developed and retains much of its natural beauty.
People on Koh Phangan continue to live a peaceful rural Thai lifestyle. Coconut farming is an important source of income for the local people, and there is a flourishing fishing community. There have been many changes caused by development, but Koh Phangan still has plenty of remote beaches and is surrounded by a beautiful coral reef. Coastal areas are lined with plantations of gently waving coconut palms, and the untouched rainforest houses a rich diversity of flora and fauna. About 8000 people live on Koh Phangan. Some are Chinese whose ancestors migrated from China over 100 years ago. The main population lives in Thongsala the main town of the island.
