Welcome to Haad rin!

Just imagine this: During the day, you're sunbathing or playing volleyball. And at night, you grab your favorite shirt or dress, and head for the bars down the beach. And if you've timed it right, full moon party is just around the corner! ;-)

Where: Had Rin is located east of Thongsala and at the southern tip of Koh Phangan. If you're in Thongsala, take a Songthaew (100-150 B per person if full Songthaew) to Haadrin which is only a short songthaew ride away.

Much of the facilities in Haadrin is within walking distance. Restaurants, bars and massage salons are lined up to cater the young backpacker crowd.

Accommodation in Hadrin

Loads of bungalows/resorts fill the streets in Hadrin!

You can find budget options, but they fill up quickly. Many backpackers and tourists travel to Koh Pha Ngan to join the full moon party in Haad Rin! ;-)

PS! Sunrise beach (Haad Rin Nok) is where the moon parties are held!

So, if you want to party on full moon and stay in Had Rin, I suggest you book accommodation early.

The backpacker accommodations in Haad Rin are fully booked a couple of days before Full Moon and at full moon night! Don't expect to find the right accommodation for you in the middle of full moon.
