You are planning to visit Ko Pha Ngan and looking for what to do in here: You are in right place. Here are the next fascinating activities you can try in this island.
Rent a kayak
Just on many of the other islands, it’s possible to rent a sea kayak and head out on the water. Head out for an hour of paddling, or be more ambitious and do an organized day tour. You can find kayaks on nearly every beach, with most starting at around 100-150 THB per hour. The West coast, from Wok Tum to Koh Ma offers some of the best kayaking waters to beach hop.
Watch (or learn) some Muay Thai
Muay Thai has gained international fame as a Thai martial art, and it’s a thrilling and disciplined sport. It is known as “The art of using eight limbs”, as fighters use fists, knees, elbows, and shins. You can catch a fight in one of the island’s three stadiums, or sign up for a lesson and learn it yourself. You can even attend a Muay Thai camp here! A one session class starts at about 300 THB, whereas a week’s stay at the camp is about 2,000 THB.
Learn to cook
Thai food has got to be one of the best cuisines in the world, and many tourists come here and just eat and eat and eat. But why not take it an extra step, and sign up for one of the island’s numerous cooking classes? Most classes begin with a visit to the local market, and they always end with a tasty meal!
Tour the temples
Thailand is covered with temples of varying religious denominations, and Ko Pha Ngan is no exception. If you haven’t gotten your fill of culture yet, visit some of them. They are beautiful windows into Thai religion and make for great photo opportunities.
Soak in the culture
The Thai Culture Center offers a variety of classes that you can take to learn more about the traditions of the people of Ko Pha Ngan. Learn how to make pad thai in a cooking class, pick up a few words in a language class, or strike a new pose in a yoga class. There are a variety of options to choose from!
Take a boat trip
Boat trips can be arranged through a variety of resorts and companies around the island. Some of the best itineraries include visits to the Than Sadet Waterfall, Thong Nai Pan, and Bottle Beach (Haad Khuat). Usually, you’ll have lunch included on these excursions.
Visit the botanical garden
The Pha Ngan Heritage Garden has over 2,000 species of Thai vegetation, with over 200 different types of water lilies alone! The ponds boast giant carp, and there is what claims to be (and I believe it!) the only Siamese Fighting Fish and Guppy Fish Museum in the South of Thailand. There is a 50 THB donation required to enter the gardens.
Zip line through the canopy
If heights are your thing, Just for Fun Canopy Adventure offers sweeping zip lines and tree bridges up to 22m up! The full course takes about 45 minutes, and you can grab a drink afterward at their Fish Spa. It costs 800 THB per person.
