    Hi,

    Me and a friend will be in Ko Pha Ngan around Xmas and New Year and just wanted to check if we are best booking our accomodation before we arrive and can anybody recommend a good place/area to stay over this period??

    Many thanks

    Ko Pha Ngan can get very busy over Xmas and New Years. While this story is about the full moon party, the advice holds true for the Christmas period as well.

    Ilike the Haad Salad area of the islands - there's quite a few places on that beach that take online reservations -- we've got some new information of Ko Pha Ngan coming onto the site over the next couple of weeks, so perhaps hold your horses before making a firm decision.

    Hey

    We are staying on Ko Phangan for New Years Eve. We are staying at TNP on the NW side... have heard its a bit quieter. Are staying at Baan Panburi resort and they were starting to get booked out. I would advise you start looking for some accommodation. With Baan Panburi we are booked but dont have to pay deposit until a couple of weeks before hand

    goodluck .. might see you there.

    avoid haad rin, it will be packed! tong nai pan-both beaches tend to be full this time of the year. definately quieter are the beaches on the south east: ask for the" sanctuary"and look around. just south of haad tien,where the sanctuary is located, you will find a nice place. booking in advance is not possible there.
