Thong Nai Pan, Thong Sala, Kho Phangan, Thailand – ASIA

A protected place, a little roots and festive … a little paradise

I spent almost two weeks on the island of Kho Phangan, specifically in Thong Nai Pan. Difficult to leave to visit Thailand soon as one arises in this corner of paradise. No mass tourism, but rather a place invested by the backpacker, couples in love and lonely. It moves it into 4 * 4 or motobike. No paved road in 2008.
They had advised me to do the full moon. Instead, I went to the half moon party that takes place in the jungle. A great moment.
The bars are a bit scattered on the roadside which is not without a certain charm.
I slept at Dolphin Bungalows. I loved these bungalows on the beachfront and both hidden by greenery. But you can not book, you have to get up.
I recommend to friends, people in backpacker mode that like to party. But also for couples
