Looks like a busy August on Koh Phangan

It’s August already, and Koh Phangan is getting much more lively. It’s that time of the year when everyone wants to do their PADI course and go fun diving or snorkelling.

April news – Koh Phangan

As we approach the Songkran Festival on Koh Phangan, it’s a surprise to see that the island is far from busy. Having said that, it’s a not such a bad thing for the diving school as a few of our PADI professionals are taking short breaks in the near future. Diving-wise over the last month we’ve been making a lot more big boat trips than usual to Koh Phangan’s local dive sites, as the diving has been particularly good here a lot of the time.
