Fill out your profile. Are you an older retiree or in school or just out of school? Or a family group just visiting there for beach time? Traveling solo or with friends?


Lots of younger tourists from Western countries go to Koh Phangan for the Full Moon Parties. You know, buy some drugs, get wasted on alcohol, do stupid things all without mommy and daddy finding out.

"..any tips.."

If you are a female traveling alone be very careful of overdoing any alcohol or drugs! Otherwise after you pass out you might wake to a line of guys waiting to use your body! (Not all young adults, some are older adults from nearby countries like South Asia, etc.)

Christmas - New Years holiday period is high season for Thailand. Millions of tourists will be in Thailand.

See and do is easy. Buy a travel guide, do a Google type, pull up various travel forums on a computer, etc. You should look at a map and see where Koh Phangan is located in relation to the rest of Thailand. You will need to work up a budget to see how much you can pay for hotels or other accommodation. You will need a passport and money to support yourself. Depending on where you are from you may need to apply for a visa or just show up. So research visa requirements.

Good luck.
