    • Koh Phayam is a small island in the Andaman Sea, nicknamed reggae or hippie island. And no wonder, time has stopped here in the last century. There are no large supermarkets or hotels on the island. There is a calm and relaxed atmosphere. Since the island is unknown to many people, you will be almost alone on the beaches. The starting point for visiting Ko Phayam is the city of Ranong in central Thailand. The best time to visit the island is late November to early March. Then some businesses start to close and there are also more rainy days. It is recommended to visit the island around the high season, Ranong is one of the rainiest places in Thailand. In summer it can rain all week and the sea and beaches could disappoint you at that time. Koh Phayam is more of a beach destination, however you can take a boat trip around the island, go for yoga or try to surf. Accommodation is mainly in bungalows in various price ranges, from modest to more luxurious. The best transport on the island is a scooter. There are 4 ways how to reach Koh Phayam from Bangkok – flight+boat, bus+boat, taxi+boat or train/bus + boat.
