Next stop, Koh Phangham.
Time for some relaxation by the sea. And sleeping in a room of my own after a long time. That’s a welcoming change.








Relatively big island. Not that small. About 170sq
meters.

Accommodates
for all tastes.

South,
south east is the party area where full moon parties take place.

North
is more quiet, where locals live.



Khanom to Koh Phanghan

For my transportation to Koh Phanghan I
opted for the overnight bus which takes you to Khanom bay by the next morning and from there I
took the ferry to Koh Phanghan. It
did not turn out to be the best choice. The other 2 options were taking the
flight to Koh Samui and
the ferry from there, but it was too expensive for my budget, or take the train
and then the ferry. I am pretty sure that the train would be a better option.

The bus was, although big, very
uncomfortable.  I was unlucky enough to
be from the last ones to get on board and got to sit and the back seats which
were extremely uncomfortable. Barely managed to get some sleep. On top of that
the driver was driving fast and without any consideration that he was carrying
human beings.  And given the fact that we
were driving in Thai roads which are very dangerous and not maintained, made
this a bad experience. The driver and co-driver did not speak any english.

After a few months I read on the
news about a bus crash in Thailand that killed 19 people… I wasn’t surprised. I just felt lucky.
