Gallery: Ko Pha Ngan & Ko Samui, Thailand

Ko Pha Ngan is a beautiful island off the East coast of Thailand. It is probably best known for being the home of the famous Full Moon Party – an all-night beach party that takes place every full moon. It’s a pretty wild event, and I plan on doing a future post full of tips for surviving a Full Moon Party, but I hope these pictures give you an idea of what it’s all about. The nearby island of Ko Samui was much more touristy than I expected with shiny shopping malls and endless hotels, but if you’re looking for beaches, sunshine and good food, it’s got everything you need.
