Wrapping It Up

With all the fun things to do and accessibility for digital nomads in Thailand, Koh Phangan is definitely a must-visit. Before leaving you to your planning, here are a few things to know when traveling to the area:

When to visit Koh Phangan

The best time to visit Koh Phangan is between February to March when you don’t have to worry about the rains. You can also head to Koh Phangan in May and June, but these are the hottest times of the year, which is best for those who want to enjoy the beaches and get that tan.

The transportation

The easiest way to get to Koh Phangan from Bangkok is to take a flight to Koh Samui, then a ferry to Thong Sala Pier in Koh Phangan. The flight to Koh Samui from Bangkok takes about 1 hour, and the ferry ride is approximately 45 minutes. You can also take a bus to Surat Thani and then a ferry to Koh Phangan, which takes around 3 hours.

When you arrive at the Thong Sala Pier, you’ll be bombarded by many moto-taxi drivers who are ready to take you to your accommodation. They only charge between $2-16. While you can take public transportation, you can rent your own motorbike, which costs between $6-9 to rent daily.

Visa situation

Digital nomads that work remotely for a company registered in Thailand can apply for a non-B visa and work permit, which allows you to stay for up to 3 months. If you are on a tourist visa, you can apply for a 60-day visa.
