Where to choose a hotel on Phangan, which beach

Пляж на Пангане

The bulk of the hotels on Phangan is located on the West coast (see the map of Koh Phangan with hotels). There are the best beaches, the most part of settlements and tourism infrastructure. But all the most "trendy" hotels of Koh Phangan, stay on which is really secluded, located in the Eastern and Northern part of the island, the topography of which makes these places very remote and isolated.

The center of tourist life on the island is the beach of Haad Rin (Haad Rin, hat or Rin Hat Rin)located on the southern tip of the island. Haad Rin – the rave and youth a place, where the Full Moon Party, and there better not to meddle if you come to the island for a relaxing holiday. If you have arrived on the island to have fun and not sit on the beach and sleep, then you in this place. Besides Haad Rin is the longest and most popular beach of the island, and is one of the few places on the island where you can swim even during the rainy season. People here a lot and always make hotel reservations in advance are better at any time of the year.

As the price of hotels, it is on Haad Rin are the most inexpensive hotels, and many hostels and guesthouses with mediocre quality. It is believed (and is) that the farther you are from Haad Rin, the better housing you'll find for the same money, only here to party you'll have to get pretty far.

North of Haad Rin West coast beaches Bann Thai (Baan Tai), Bunn Kai (Baan Kai), and then the Islands capital Thongsala (Thong Sala). This is the most extensive beaches and a great place to get away from the noise and fun of Haad Rin, but at the same time, to be with him. Of these places very easy to get to hangouts (even on foot).

Haad Yuan (Haad Yuan) and Haad Tian (Haad Tien) is a small and isolated sandy Cove on the Southeast coast, a little North of Haad Rin. They beautifully blend with the rocky coast of the island. Relax on these beaches for those who love peace and quiet. Despite its proximity to Haad Rin, in fact these beaches is not so easy to reach (only by boat), and so they retain their absolute privacy. You should not consider these beaches as a quiet position, yet close and accessible to Haad Rin.

But the best sandy beaches of Koh Phangan are considered than Sadet (Sadet Thong) and Thanh Nai pan (Thong Nai Pan). Both beaches are on the East coast in a very remote and secluded location. By the way, at first you will be able to enjoy the greatness of famous the Tharn Sadet waterfall, which is so like the king Rama 5. These beaches are ideal for lovers of the exotic, and those who want to escape from the hustle and bustle of "technical" life of the world. You will not find air conditioning in the bungalows, and a hot shower. And while Breakfast can easily see the monitor lizard in General, all of the exotic without unnecessary blow civilization. But the Tone-Nai-ban is renowned for its luxury hotels with huge swimming pools, numerous massage and SPA salons, and other blessings of the modern world.

On the North of Koh Phangan has successfully located the beaches Bottle beach (Bottle Beach) and Chaloklum (Chalok Lam). This is one of the most secluded and quietest beaches of Koh Phangan. If Chaloklum can still be reached by taxi, then to Bottle beach is best to use a boat.

Special attention deserves coral "king" Koh Phangan - Mae Haad (Haad Mae Haad), with the Western MA miniature island (Koh Maa). These places just love the snorkelers who think it's best for such entertainment. And if you want to look at the picturesque sunset, you can move to the beach, Wok tum (Wok Tum) or Haad Chao phao (Haad Chaphao)– there will be even more beautiful.

The rainy season in Thailand is nonsense.All the different provinces. For Koh Samui in July ,August and until mid September is the best time of rest. And this time, not the rainy season. There is a month can go 3-4 rain for 15 minutes. And this is the peak season. In Italy from August 1 to September 1 all the holiday( in Spain too) and at this time the island crowded with Italians(but not the Spaniards,there are a few). 10 times vacationing with his wife on Koh Samui this summer for a month each time. Russian tour guides(friends) we were told that winter here is worse.A few years ago I went to Koh Samui in winter from 20 January to 15 February. Really did not like.Every three days the storm in the sea grass, boards, logs and other debris. And weather is normal, you can relax. But it is not a rule, sometimes worse, but sometimes better.Therefore, from 1 November the best place to relax on Koh Chang until March, then worse.But the ball there is a zero. So everybody is looking for what suits him. Someone like Phuket, some don't, also the winter vacation is good there, but for us in winter, Koh Chang better.I will add that to Chang the wild tides and need to get serious about the choice of hotel. ...

All true, and nobody on this website never claimed that in Thailand the rainy season is one for the whole country, and on this account even sickly seasons sign is - But you draw conclusions about the weather on several trips at one time, and one trip to another - not objectively. Still the best season in Samui is in January-April. And the fact that you were not so lucky... well, weather is unpredictable because almost... ...

Read the post above. This answer for AnyChek. And what about January-April , I live here told friends, operating guides. It is friends, just guides I'm not going to listen. Been there, done that. And about the spring floods you forget about autumn I will not say, you do know about them and during them happening. And that weather is unpredictable, you're right... But for our 10 year old travel to Samui had no problems with the weather. ...

Samui is a wonderful island!
We flew from Moscow with a stopover in Bangkok, the tour was in early March. The weather was great, and just in the last day the sun hid, and we learned what a tropical rain. :lol:
We stayed in the wonderful hotel briza resort. The hotel consists of many small two-storey houses, each house a maximum of 4 rooms. The whole hotel look like the garden of Eden, is buried in verdure.
The island is very interesting because on one side you can only see the dawn, and on the other the decline. We lived in Chaweng, there are only sunrises, so we decided one evening to go to the other end of the island to watch the sunset, and absolutely do not regret it, it is very beautiful! ...

I have a strong opinion that trips to a guide which tells about the sights, only needed for historical sites. And considering that there are places on Samui not, then excursions are not necessary, if you are able to reach on their own. If you drive a motorbike, take it in rent and go, all you will see. ...
