The Little Secrets on Koh Phangan
- Half Day
Internationally well-known for the full moon party on the beach, Koh Phangan has some well-kept secrets that are awaiting to be unveiled.

You will be picked up at 08:00. Be met with a local guide and go on a discovery of various little secret places around the island. See how local fishermen live their life, catching squid and fish out at sea. Meet a local friendly monk who has spent many years in Europe. Get into his relaxed and communicative demeanour as he shares insight into Buddhist culture. The small temple makes this a very personal experience.

Proceed to a small house which produces batik clothes, dresses and t-shirts. Be surprised by how creatively the fabrics are dyed using the simplest tools to produce something beautiful. Then visit Mr. Nab’s house, and enjoy the local way of living, seeing chicken running around in the garden and exotic fruits growing. Here, taste the local honey, the colour and flavour depends on the nectar source visited by the bees. Following this, meet Ms. Paew at her small hut cooking fresh chicken and vegetarian snacks. With some luck, her husband will also make sweet Thai Iced Coffee.

Next, discover the secrets of coconuts. Learning more about coconuts and how local families can make a living from plantations. Some coconuts are sent to a local factory to make oil and others for export. Visit the street of Thongsala, a nice place for a walk and browsing through various types of local produces. This was actually the first market on the island.


Return to the hotel by lunch time.
