Koh Phangan – Best time to go

Best time to visit Koh Phangan

We love visiting Koh Phangan anytime from January to September. January to April sees the driest weather, but this lucky Thai island is almost as good in the summer. The island is busiest during its monthly full moon parties. 

Best times to visit

Dry Season

Koh Phangan is blessed with beautiful weather and calm seas for much of the year. January to April tend to be the driest months, with just a little more rain expected from May to September.     

Rainy Season

October, November, and December are significantly wetter and windier due to the northeast monsoon. Koh Phangan is at its quietest now, but if the prospect of rain really dampens your spirits then this time of year is best avoided.
