    I'm planning to go to Phangan in March and would like to stay at Had Thian/Yuan ( how far apart are they, which one is better?) Maybe the Sanctuary???? Any experiences?
    Or in Ao Thong Nai Pan?

    I'm traveling by myself, so I wouldn't ming some ppl, while there.
    I'm also a fire dancer, and wouldn't mind a place with some music and other ppl to play with.
    But I definetely don't wanna stay in Haad Rin.
    Please give some advice...I want to book my room since I'll be there during Full Moon...not really by choice.

    Haad Thian and Haad Yuan are about a five to ten minute walk apart (you just need to walk over a small headland). Haad Yuan is a far longer sandy beach, which a large portion of haad Thian is rocky -- the sandy part of Haad Thian is in front of Sanctuary Resort.

    I've stayed on both, and prefer Haad Yuan. Note just to the north of Haad Thian is Ao Why Nam -- a very small bay -- but it is lovely for swimming.

    Thong Nai Pan Noi is one of the most beautiful beaches on Ko Pha Ngan -- difficult to go wrong there and theres a full range of accommodation available there.

    For reservations in advance you're pretty limited -- Baan Panburi on Thong Nai Pan Noi can be booked online. as can a smattering of other places on Ko Pha Ngan, though you're best to show up a few days (3-4) before the party and see what you can find.

    Enjoy your trip

    I loved Had Yuan. Quiet beach, cheap bungalows were only 100 baht a night, good food, great swimming etc... you can only get to this beach by longboat so it stays fairly quiet. Try the massaman salad at the Haad Yuan Bungalow resteraunt, it's awesome! The only hippie fire twirlers I saw were at Haad Rin.
