Destination: Ko Pha Ngan
Ko Pha Ngan, an island off the coast of Southern Thailand, is an idyllic tropical paradise with countless white sand beaches and coconut trees. The island features myriad places to lose yourself among pristine beaches with endless ocean views, while offering those seeking active pursuits everything from yoga to freediving to windsurfing and more. For the partier, the (in)famous Full Moon raves and nearby Ko Samui will keep you dancing all night. A short flight away, destinations like Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Angkor Wat, Hanoi, and Kuala Lumpur all make exciting weekend getaways.
Located in the Gulf of Thailand, Ko Pha Ngan is blessed with warm weather year-round and dozens of beaches stretching along its coasts. The word ‘Ngan’ in its name means ‘Sand bar’ in its original language, suitable for an island with so many beaches. The island was first settled some 2000 years ago by sea gypsies from the Malay Peninsula. Over hundreds of years Chinese and Thai populations immigrated to the island and shaped its culture to the unique blend it is today. Tourists discovered Ko Pha Ngan in the 1980s, but the island is to date far less commercialized than other Thai beach destinations like Ko Samui and Phuket, which adds to the island’s charm and laid back vibe.
The island’s peaceful nature attracts a strong yoga and meditation following, while everything from hiking and biking to snorkeling and diving to kayaking and Muay Thai are also popular on the island. A national park, elephant camps, beautiful waterfalls, peaceful temples, and more await those looking for more adventure.
The Ko Pha Ngan Workspace
The workspace we will use in Ko Pha Ngan is literally on a beach facing turquoise ocean waters. The space is on a sand bar popular for sunbathing, nestled off the main road that winds around the island. The workspace has brand-new facilities including a 50Mbps dedicated high-speed Internet connection with a redundant 50Mbps backup connection, a cafe attached, and restaurants, bars, and convenience stores a short stroll away. The area is visited by a very international crowd and exudes a very peaceful atmosphere. For those looking for raucous nightlife, the party city of Haad Rin is a scooter or taxi ride away

Your accommodation in Ko Pha Ngan will consist of pre-vetted hotels near the beach.
