Koh Phayam

So you've been back to Koh Samui, Koh Phi-Phi and you're horrified at what you see; big resorts, crowded bars, night clubs and thousands of tourists. So now what..??

Well it may surprise you, but head to Ranong Province..!!

WELCOME TO KOH PHAYAM!

Imagine Koh Samui 20 years ago; unspoilt beaches, relaxed atmosphere, beach bungalows, no huge resorts...

Well this is what Koh Phayam offers visitors looking for the basic luxuries of sun, sand, sea and scenery.




Koh Phayam is the second largest island in the Andaman Sea, second only to it's ''brother'', Koh Chang.

Not to be confused with the larger (and more famous) island of the same name in Trat province, Koh Chang is Koh Phayam's "twin island" and the two are always linked.

Formerly populated by sea gypsies, both islands are growing travellers hideaways and offer stunning natural beauty, amazing beaches, crystal clear sea and a laid back atmosphere.

As the sun goes down over Koh Phayam, people from all over the world meet up in bars and restaurants around the island, to relax and sample some of the island's amazing seafood, local cuisine and a few cold drinks.
