Streets, Beats, & Eats is our short video series where we highlight cool areas to hang out, delicious places to eat and a spot to take in some live music. We try to make a video for every place we visit where you can find all of the above. For this edition, we’re checking out a famous Thai island – Ko Pha-Ngan.
There’s far more to do on Ko Pha-Ngan than just the Full Moon Party. There are plenty of other options for nightlife, such as the Jungle Experience. It’s a far more chilled out affair than Full Moon, with DJs spinning inside a cheetah head, a Muay Thai ring, and lots more.
In addition to parties, there are lots of dive sites just a short boat ride away. In the north part of the island, you can find secluded beaches that will make you forget that you’re even on a party island. It’s also chock full of waterfalls, hiking trails, and delicious restaurants.
In this episode, we check out a hike to a swimming hole, a waterfall, a temple fair, the night market, and of course the two big parties.
