Washing The Soul – Koh Phangan, Thailand

We keep on chasing waterfalls, sunsets, beaches, chin-dropping views, and delicious food on the Full Moon Party Island!
Koh Phangan is actually not only known by the famous Moon party, but also as the yoga point of Thailand, and the vegan island.
It can be confusing to an outsider to understand why so many yoga schools and retreats in the middle of the party scene, but actually, Phangan is huge and everything has its place.
The south is home to the partygoers in all phases of the moon. The north west is where the hippie, vegan, yogi, minimalist, zero waste, spiritualist, and family communities meet.
From top to bottom, all just wanting to Sabai Sabai.😉

Here all addresses and extra info from everything you saw on the video:

*While in Koh Phangan we will add GPS location due many of the roads being nameless and/or numberless.

We can’t tell you about the actual party, but the location at daytime is beautiful.
It would be a nice place to grab a tea/coffee but the place was completely empty in the morning(staff included).

 

Sramanora Waterfall
Address: Ban Tai, Koh Phangan (GPS: 9.706945,100.047112)

Further on the street passing the waterfall party site, there are cascades spread among the fields, with a fairy-like atmosphere.
Chances are you’ll be alone and able to enjoy the fairytale view by yourself.
Great place for a picnic or to peacefully read a book.

The well-kept park is a great choice for a half day of contact with nature.

Address: Srithanu, Koh Phangan (GPS: 9.759825,99.961314)

In order to watch the sunset, an informal gathering takes places every day at Zen beach.
Most of the days, musicians come and help embellish the scene adding a soundtrack to it.
A mix of families, yogis, and the tantric community are always present.
Meditation, yoga classes, and tantric dances happen in alternate dates; many times free of charge.
The conscious act of being present to watch the sun together brings a special vibe to the spot.
