One Free Day in Koh Phangan

Since we were arrived Koh Phangan yesterday from Bangkok, we rented the scooter and ready to hop around the paradise island freely. These things are the activities what you can have fun around Koh Phangan in one day.

Enjoy Morning Sun at Haad Rin Beach

Haad Rin is not famous for Full Moon Party only. As it is located on the eastern part of the island, it is the one of the nice place to enjoy the morning sun at Koh Phangan. Wake up in the morning can bring you to charge up your life by walking along the peaceful beach with white sand and sunshine.


Taste Local Breakfast at Morning Market (Je-Pom Dim Sum)

Koh Phangan has the community near to Thong Sala Pier, the pier what we were landed to the island yesterday. It has local market and many food shops in the morning (6am – 9am). If your hotel has no breakfast service, don’t worry, it has a lot of interesting local foods in this market. Pork rice porridge at Je Pom Dim Sum (Thai : เจ๊ป้อมติ่มซำ) is one of recommended. Rice in pork-soup with pork balls served with fried dough stick is the best dish to make up energized and ready for the new day.


Visit Than Sadet Waterfall

For me, it is amazing to see waterfall in the island. I did not expect to see the fresh water fall during my trip to island and (salt water) sea. Than Sadet Waterfall is one of IT’S A MUST to visit in Koh Phangan. It has water all year round and is not difficult to reach. We can get there by scooter and park in in front of the entrance and then walk for 100m only. Moreover, it has house of lonely blind man at the entrance. He is selling snack and drink for his living. Please don’t forget to support him by buying some drink from him.


Relax and Take Deep Breaths at Than Sadet Beach

Next to Than Sadet Waterfall, 2 km away, it has the quiet and beautiful beach called Than Sadet Beach. After you visit waterfall, it is recommended to continue to enjoy the same name beach. At this beach, it has only few small local hotel and very few tourist. it makes us feel we are at ‘private beach’. The sea is clear and the sand is white & fine. We had spent almost 2 hours here by sitting on the beach, having lunch from local restaurant, enjoy soft drink and soothing the relaxing atmosphere.


Hopping for Good Vibes Cafe

Koh Phangan has many coffee shops to spend your afternoon time with your favorite coffee. We selected Hundred Islands Coffee Bar as it had good review score in tourist websites. A peaceful afternoon with calm vibes and favorite coffee on the paradise island make us happy than ever.


Treat your belly at Thong Sala Walking Street

Every Saturday Evening (4pm – 9pm), nearby Thong Sala Pier, it has walking street with hundreds of food stall and local souvenir shop as well as local product. The most attractive thing (for us) is food 🙂 . Many yummy food and snack along with street make us delighted and treat our belly until we forget what is the meaning of ‘Full’.
