Although justly famous for its Full Moon parties, Ko Phangan has a lot more to offer visitors than all-night dancing. There are few day trip options from Koh Samui, apart from sailing cruises, so at least an overnight stay is recommended. Ko Phangan is at least 10 years behind Samui in terms of development, which lends the island a lot of charm, and some would say it's more picturesque than Samui itself. The main tourist beach Haad Rin is busiest on Full Moon nights, but is well worth a visit the rest of the month too for its chaotic jumble of bars, clubs, restaurants and handicraft shops. The locals - expats and Thais alike - are a friendly bunch and help make the atmosphere a lot more laid back than frenetic Chaweng. Their attitude is that every night is a party night on Haad Rin, which pretty much sums it up.
