How to get to eKohPhangan


Koh Phangan can be reached from airports at Koh Samui or Surat Thani, both of which have air links to Bangkok. Flights to Koh Samui are via Bangkok Air or Thai Airways. Surat Thani airport is used by several airlines including Thai Airways, Air Asia and Nok Air, note that Nok and Air Asia fly from BKK domestic airport, about a 45 minute taxi drive from Suvarnabhum International airport. Both Koh Samui and Surat Thani airports offer limited direct international flights from certain countries.
Overnight trains run from BKK to Surat Thani, and combination train/ferry tickets can be purchased as can combination bus/ferry tickets.

Taxis are freely available at both Thong Sala and Haad Rin ferry terminals to Baan Tai (100-200 thb). Ask to be taken to Baan Tai, and preferably Wat Khao Tam ... we are situated about 200m from the main road turnoff and half way between Baan Tai beach and Wat Khao Tam.

Our eco friendly suggestions:

1. Our houses are 'Thai style' designed around building principles developed over many centuries to suit the Thai environment...  Windows create a cross flow of air, open them. If required, use the fan, but sparingly... only in desperation use the air con (but with Windows and doors closed)
2. We capture rainwater ... Use this in the outside sinks for washing dishes and clothes, ....  use internal piped water sparingly.... Water is a limited and valuable resource in Thailand
3. Minimise electrical usage .... Electricity suppy on Phangan can be eratic at times!
4. Transport...  walking is good for you! We are less than 0.5 km from Baan Tai pier and so is an easy stroll. Tuk tuks and taxis are readily available and ply between Thong Sala and Haad Rin (100-200 thb to either). Bicycles, scooters, motorbikes and cars are all available for rent on the island at reasonable cost. We have several pedal bikes available for use, subject to availability... please ask.
5. Thailand offers guests some of the most delicious food in the world, often using local fresh produce. Where possible buy locally produced food and drink (try Singha or Chang beers rather than imports). Thong Sala has many excellent food outlets including an organic farmers co-operative and nightly food market.
6. Take garbage away with you, collect it off beaches and paths, bin it! Join the Facebook group 'Green Cross Beach Clean' and join us in keeping the island litter free.

We support local environmental initiatives, particularly EcoThailand.org, Trash Hero and Green Cross Beach Clean.

Enjoy the superb views and walks from the local temple grounds. When meditation retreats are in progress please be respectful, quiet and observe the Wat instructions to visitors.
Baan Tai has numerous restaurants and coffee shops and several 7-11 stores within walking distance of eKohPhangan. Taxis to Haad Rin and Thong Sala can be picked  up on the main road.
Local meditation, herbal spas and yoga centres help you to chill out and discover the inner you.

For the party people ... We are coveniently situated for a short taxi ride to Haad Rin for the Full Moon party, and the Half Moon, Jungle Experience, Shiva Moon and Black Moon parties are held in the Baan Tai area itself! Koh Phangan has so much more to offer than a party night, why not stay for extra days, weeks...  or months... and discover this tropical paradise?
Please note that rental is significantly higher around full moon nights. Enjoy the party, but we ask that our home is respected and treated well. Any damages are chargable, fluorescent body paint is particularly difficult to remove from furniture and bedding!
