After a week of serious partying on Haad Rin, including a Full Moon Party, I headed to a small, quiet beach on the northeastern edge of Koh Phangan. Thong Nai Pan Noi was a tropical paradise defined.
The beach was small, and quiet at night, which made it perfect for late swims, with or without clothes. There were budget bungalows, and a property of luxury ones being constructed (boo!). A few restaurants offered dining and drinks on the beach, and the vibe was super casual.
In the “town” which was more a collection of small stores, restaurants, bars, and massage shops, life seemed to move at a snail’s pace. It was the perfect base camp to enjoy beach life, and a recovery from the party lifestyle on the island’s southern end.

Next week, we’re heading across Thailand for a Visa run, and then on to more tropical islands.
