Yovada Explorer

  Koh Phangan, Thailand

Perfect for catching the sunset in solitude, vibrant purples, oranges and blues all blend seamlessly together to create the unparalleled beauty of Hin Kong beach. This unspoilt wonder with two kilometres of fine sand and mangrove trees lined up by the shore gives a real untouched feel, perfect for a serene and tranquil tropical getaway. Coral reefs, found 300 meters of the beach, are protected by law to ensure that this haven is nurtured and maintained.

This location is not as well-known as the other parts of Thailand thus it maintains a sense of solace and solitude. Only a couple of bungalows can be found near the area and it is surrounded by lush lands and trees. This tropical oasis makes anyone feel a strong connection with nature with its azure waters gently crashing to the shore.

The closest airport is Ko Samui (USM) which has frequent flights from Bangkok, Phuket and Singapore, Hong Kong and several direct flights each week from Chiang Mai and Kuala Lumpur. You can travel to Koh Phangan through a ferry and the dock can be easily accessed from the airport. Ferries depart several times a day with the last one around dusk.
