Haad Rin is probably most famous for the Full Moon Party crowd, but there is also so much to discover while you’re here.
Located on Koh Phangan’s south-east coast, this area is divided into two main places: there’s Haad Rin Nok, which is associated for being the vibrant party beach, then there’s Haad Rin Nai, which is quieter and has a bohemian vibe.
