By Paul Hazeveld
The Full Moon party isn't the only thing to do on Koh Phangan. Just like the rest of Thailand there are lots of activities everywhere. you can also go sightseeing to the most beautiful places you've ever seen. So don't just limit yourself to the Full Moon Party, but explore the island and enjoy the island life!
Diving and Snorkeling
Koh Phangan has many lovely diving sites around the island. These are perfect for both experienced and beginning divers. There are daily trips to Sail Rock with almost every diving school. Sail Rock is considered the best diving spot in the Gulf of Thailand and one of the best in the world.
There are several Muay Thai schools on Koh Phangan. You'll probably see small groups of men running through the streets when it's too hot to do any sort of physical exercise. Those are most likely students of the Muay Thai schools. Experienced and unexperienced fighters can join.
There are also events were you can go to see national and international fighters challenge eachother in exciting matches.
Boat trips to Ang Thong National Park, Koh Nang Yuan and Koh Tao
