Located in the Southeast of the Gulf of Thailand is the beautiful island of Ko Pha Ngan. Considered to the one of the world’s most popular backpacker’s destinations, Ko Pha Ngan is known for its magical natural beauty and tranquil ambience. Tourists and backpackers from all parts of the globe come to this island to experience its unique culture, beautiful beaches, thriving hospitality industry, and its famous full moon parties.
The capital city of the island of Ko Pha Ngan is Thong Sala, and is a more relaxed than other cities of Ko Pha Ngan such as Haad Rin. The town serves as the administrative hub of the island and is also a popular transit point for tourists and backpackers heading towards Haad Rin. Although the city of Thong Sala does not boast of the wild and hedonistic culture as other areas of Ko Pha Ngan, it certainly does have an identity of its own for being a relaxing destination.
As mentioned earlier, there are no wild parties or crazy nightlife in Thong Sala, but still there are many entertainment options to choose from. One can engage in some diving, snorkelling or fishing in Thong Sala as there are numerous dive, fishing, and marine activity operators in the area. There are also several motorcycle and jeep rental outlets which might interest a tourist as well. The cuisine of Thong Sala is also a highlight of the city, as one can find a wide range of restaurants in Thong Sala. Although Thai seafood restaurants are the most common in the city, one can also find Italian, French, Japanese and even Greek restaurants. There are also a few lively bars with pool tables scattered around the city which one can visit and to have a drink and wind down. Overall Thong Sala is a far cry from the other areas of Ko Pha Ngan, and far more suitable for the weary traveller or tourist looking for relaxation.
