It you are 25 or under this place will appeal, or a party goer. But when the party is out of town there is not much going on. Like it has a dual personality.

So this is about the beach itself, nice bay, nice view, very windy, impossible nearly to swim, very strong waves, constant thrashing of the waves on the shore is extremely loud so it's far from relaxed. All in all this place is quite literally good for Full Moon and that's it in my opinion. We left after 2 days, prefer... More

Pay attention: DO NOT TAKE THIS TOUR!! specially if the name of the "captain" of the boat is a character name "Han". Lets start by saying that there is no speed boat, this tour is made on a ferry-type boat. They advertize it as 45 minutes trip to go and 45 minutes to come back, IT IS NOT TRUE. To... More

Amazing time! While parties occur on this beach every night, the Full Moon Party is a must if you are in Koh Phangan backpacking. Be careful of the fire jump rope!

This beach is great for a full moon party but otherwise its like a meat market, all the girls and guys just eyeing each other up. If you want an Ibiza style holiday with a packed beach and endless drinking this is for you but its a long way to go for that. Not a true backpacking experience and not... More

Haad Rin area is full of young people who are seeking parties everynight. So, if you are at 30s, probably you will find nothing interesting for you. There are some reataurants and bars, but actually I liked non of them. Everything is simple, very far from nice ambiance, as if whole area is just for backpackers.
