Koh Phangan Information:
Ko Pha Ngan is an island in southeast Thailand
that’s renowned for its monthly Full Moon Party.
This boisterous night-long celebration,
which is tied to the lunar calendar,
draws revelers to its southeastern peninsula, Haad Rin.
Most festivities center on Sunrise Beach,
whose beach bungalows attract a backpacker crowd.
On the north coast lie quieter, white-sand beaches
including Hat Khuat and Hat Thian.
The name Ko Pha Ngan derives from the word "ngan",
meaning "sand bar" in the southern dialect,
for there are many sand bars offshore.
Ko Pha Ngan has been a longtime favorite of past kings of Thailand.
Rama V, or Chulalongkorn, for example, visited Ko Pha Ngan
14 times during his reign.
