Things to do (optional)

Thailand is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world and an extremely easy to travel the country. The Thai people are very friendly and helpful and English is spoken by everyone. This magical island offers a wide variety of experiences and things to do; sandy white beaches with crystal clear water, turquoise lagoons, overwhelming sunsets, massages and spa treatments, jungle hikes in the beautiful nature surroundings, magnificent waterfalls, delicious Thai food, tropical fruits, a variety of vegan restaurants, and a wide range of holistic activities and spiritual workshops.

The local established yogi community in Srithanu village (where Luna Alignment Yoga is located) gives you the opportunity to socialize and interact with like-minded people. For example, the well-known daily sunset gathering at Zen beach, where you can meet new friends for acro-yoga, musical jam sessions, meditations, dancing, swimming, or just lying down on the soft white sand in front of the breathtaking sunset or chilling around the bonfire. Really, it makes a yogi's heart sing.

Recommended Airports

Arrival by airplane

Please book your flight to arrive at Samui Airport (USM). The nearest airport to Koh Phangan is in Koh Samui. At the airport counter (right when you make your way out of the airport), you can buy, on arrival, a joint ticket for a taxi to the pier and ferry to Koh Phangan. You can go there after you pick up your luggage and they will tell you when is the next ferry leaving, and sell you the joint ticket.

Another, usually cheaper, option is to fly to Surat Thani International Airport (URT) on the mainland.

It is advised to purchase the tickets in advance.
