What’s up Guys!
Today I bring you a location review of one of my favorite places in Thailand. Koh Phangan Island. Koh Phangan is a small island in the southern gulf of Thailand. It has a well earned reputation as a party destination, but there’s more to this beautiful island then full moon parties and drunken back packers.
Koh Phangan, Thailand Women Rating: 3/5
Koh Phangan is a small island so your selection of women is pretty limited. However, I found plenty of action during my stay. It’s no Bangkok, but a guy can certainly get his dick wet without much trouble.
I managed to meet a nice girl who works at a Hotel on the island. There’s plenty of cute girls working in the shops, restaurants and hotels if you look around. Most of the girls I met were kind of average looking and simple… But still very cute, sweet and worth dropping a load into.
If you stay on the island for a while you can definetaly find yourself a nice Thai girlfriend. It just might take a little longer then in the big city… And you might have to settle for a 7/10. Personally, I don’t mind a slutty 7 who can cook, clean and massage me. It’s all good! 😀
Whore Mongering in Koh Phangan, Thailand
If you don’t have time for dating good girls, there are some mongering options in Koh Phangan. I stayed in Haad Rin and I got several happy ending massages as well as full service in some shops.
If you ride on the main road north heading towards the town of Thong Sala, you will see a strip of beer bars. You can’t miss them because there will be half naked skanky bar girls standing outside yelling at every man who rides by. These girls are always up for some Tequila shots and rough sex if you have enough baht. 😉
I actually bar fined two girls from a bar one night and had a threesome. Well, actually I fucked one while the other sat there with a dumb look on her face. Threesomes never work out like the pornos I watch… Maybe I’m doing something wrong? Any advice let me know! 😀
There’s also freelancers that hang around the beach in Haad Rin. Typical scene as most places where you can find freelance hookers. They will be dressed slutty and hanging around bars where there are foreigners.
If you see a sexy girl you like just approach her and say hello. I like to have a quick drink together to make sure she’s not a miserable cunt.
Everything is negotiable but most are willing to go short time for 1,000 baht. Just be careful… I was robbed by two Thai Hookers I met on the beach… Freelancers could be potentially dangerous. Lock up your valuables!
Fucking White Chicks in Thailand
Caucasian women do not give me an erection but if you’re into them, you can fuck loads of white pussy in Koh Phangan. They arrive by the thousands every week and they are there to get piss drunk and party. If you have a shred of “game” you could definetaly drill some farang pussy while staying on the island.
I don’t even like white girls and I still banged one while staying down there. This chick was all over me at the bar so I threw her on my bike and drove her straight to my hotel. Brought her inside for a quick shag and went right back to the bar. It’s really that easy…
A lot of the tourists are smokin hot too. You will find girls from all over the world who come to the full moon party every month and then hang around on the neighboring islands for the week.
There’s a constant rotation of young tourists and I’m sure if you were into farang chicks you would be fucking like a maniac down there. Party on the beach, get drunk, bang out some free pussy… Then the girls have to fly home a few days later… PERFECT! 😀
Do to the limited selection of Thai Babes living on the island, Koh Phangan loses a few points in the women category. That said, there are plenty of options and you wouldn’t be jacking off to porn if you lived there. Women Rating: 3/5
Koh Phangan, Thailand Cost of Living: 4/5
Koh Phangan is cheap. I stayed in a small bungalow that was directly on the beach and everything was reasonably priced. In the morning I would wake up to a gorgeous sea view and topless European girls sunbathing on the sand just a few meters in front of my balcony. No bullshit. 😀
I don’t know what kind of long term accommodation is available on the island but I’m sure you could negotiate a deal with a hotel for a good monthly rate.
Koh Phangan is much more of a budget travel destination compared to the neighboring island of Koh Samui. There are far less big resorts and it attracts a very different crowd.
If you don’t mind sleeping in a little shack with a mosquito net then you can certainly live the island lifestyle for cheap. Check out some of these prices on Agoda! Also, read my post about saving money while traveling.
I stayed at Palita Lodge which is a great guest house directly on the beach in Haad Rin. Please note. This is where the full moon party takes place and I would never stay here during the party… But when I was there it was perfect. It’s nice having the beach right outside your door. 😀
I would love to rent a small bungalow on Koh Phangan to chill out for a month. Great local food, beautiful beaches, cheap motorbike rental. What else could you ask for!
There are very few extravagant places to spend money in Koh Phangan. You could live very comfortably for $1,000 per month. Cost of living 4/5.
Koh Phangan, Thailand Quality of Life Rating: 4/5
Koh Phangan is a beautiful island and I had a blast during my stay. I would definetaly go back again and stay longer. The island is far less developed then Koh Samui or Phuket but there’s enough to keep you happy.
I personally don’t need a huge shopping mall with a movie theater or a high end night club. As long as there’s a gym, a decent beach, some good street food and few cheap hookers on call when I need to empty my balls then I’m a happy man! 😀
Koh Phangan is the ideal island paradise for someone who just wants to chill out and relax. In fact, I was partying and binge drinking for three weeks straight on Koh Samui, then I finally escaped to Koh Phangan and it was exactly what I needed. Rest and Relaxation.
I rented a small bungalow on the beach and did nothing all day but read books while laying in a hammock. I still cherish those memories of waking up and seeing a gorgeous ocean view while still laying in bed.
Things to do in Koh Phangan, Thailand
Much of Koh Phangan is undeveloped jungle. Some of my best times were just cruising around the island on my motorbike and exploring. There’s plenty of places to go hiking, swimming, kayaking, etc. If you love the outdoors then you will love Koh Phangan.
Whether you just want to lay on the beach and drink your life away, or you want to train Muay Thai and live an active outdoors life, Koh Phangan has something for everyone.
The Full Moon Party
I can’t discuss Koh Phangan without bringing up the full moon party, so here it is… I hate it.
I’m not going to rant about annoying back packers and all that, I’ll just say that the full moon party is not my scene at all. If you’re there then you have to experience it… But good lord it’s a shit show.
A bunch of half naked kids covered in neon paint pissing shitting puking and passing out on the beach. That beautiful beach is just completely trashed by the morning and it’s painful to watch honestly.
That said, the entire island economy seems to revolve around this dumb party so I’m sure the locals profit when “Davie from Doncaster” is sleeping in a puddle of vomit on the beach. After you experience it once you will want to hide on the other side of the island during this party. Luckily, that’s very easy to do.
The Half Moon Party
There is another party on the island called the “half moon party.” It’s basically a small version of the full moon party but it’s held in the jungle. Surprisingly, I had a good time at this party! They decorate this little area of the jungle with glowing neon and black lights. They do good job and it looks pretty cool.
I met a great group of people and we partied all night. I also met a sweet Thai freelance prostitute there and she stayed with me all night and the next day. She loved my beach front bungalow so much she didn’t want to leave! 😀 I guess it’s better then sleeping on the floor of that shitty beer bar she’s stuck working at.
If you’re around during these parties it’s worth checking out, but if I lived there I would probably avoid them like the plague.
In summary, Koh Phangan scores very high when it comes to quality of life. It’s got everything you need on the island without being too developed and crowded. Quality of Life: 4/5
Cost of Living: 4/5
Quality of Life: 4/5
Koh Phangan, Thailand – Single Man’s Paradise Rating: 11/15
Koh Phangan is certainly Single Man’s Paradise. If you enjoy beautiful beaches and a laid back island lifestyle then Koh Phangan could be the perfect place for you. There’s enough action there to keep you busy without being too over developed like some of the other islands in Thailand. I look forward to visitng again soon!
