is it possible to go to Koh Pha Ngan from Phuket and to Railay in Krabi? Can anyone give me information on how to get there. thanks.
Also is it possible to go to Bangkok in any of the two beach areas via bus?

by the way, when is the exact date of either April or May fullmoon? [got no moon calendar].

It has been a few years since I did it, but the boat from Phuket goes to Krabi daily and you can get a long tailed boat to Railay from Krabi. It is not possible to get from Phuket to Koh Pha Ngan direct. You either have to get back to BKK if you are flying to Samui and then a boat, or take a bus/mini-bus to Surrat Thani and a boat over to Koh Samui, then boat to Koh Pha Ngan.

Yes, you do have a full moon calendar. Use google or another search engine and type; 'full moon calendar'. Mine says full moon in April is on 13th, May is also the 13th and June is on the 11th. Now, wasn't that easy?

i'm sure you can organise through guesthouses on koh phangan or tour operators in Hadd Rin or Thong Sala, boats and buses to phuket! if my memory serves me rightly, i did it last year!

Yes you can go anywhere you like from anywhere, its all well accessible!
But i would rather suggest you to go from Phuket to Krabi first and then from there you can go to KP.

By the way FMP is on the 13th of April, and i'm gonna b with my friends for the FMP, maybe we can meet up for a beer!!!

cheers,

Vik.
