Family trip to Ko Pha Ngan Island with children. Ideas on where to go with your child

Thailand - KO PHA NGAN Ko Pha Ngan, Phangan or Pangan is an island near Samui. It is known for its untouched nature, monasteries and parties. However, it is quite comfortable to relax here with your child, especially if you do not settle in a hotel near the local discos. There are no water parks, large amusement parks or movie centres on the island, but active and curious children will have a unique chance to discover many interesting, untouched corners of wildlife. If your child is strong enough, feel free to go together to the Than Sadet Waterfall National Park. This is quite a large area, but you can enter here for free.
One of the most interesting places for active tourists on Ko Pha Ngan is the Than Sadet National Park, located in the vicinity of the Royal River. The river was named so because the king of … Open
You can climb Khao Ra Mount with your child in the park, which provides a magnificent view of the island. Just remember that this trip to the top of the mountain will be exhausting for an untrained child. There are many beautiful waterfalls on the island, which can be reached by driving on a motorbike and after passing the rest of the road on foot. Than Sadet, Sramanora, Than Prawet, Wang Sai and Phaeng are perfect waterfalls for children who are ready to swim in the flowing streams of water. Active children, especially those who love bungee, should visit Laem Son Lake. Moreover, a lot of local residents with their offsprings spend time near the lake, so your child will definitely find a playmate here.
Be sure to visit local Safari Park with your child. Not every child will enjoy elephant riding because these mammals are not as meek as lambs and sometimes they have a violent temper. But your child will be happy to feed an elephant, a squirrel or a monkey. Moreover, there are arranged performances with snakes and freshwater crocodiles in the evenings in the park. Boys and many girls may like the idea to learn to shoot arrows. This can be done in the shooting range near Chaloklum. Be sure to swim with your child in Ang Thong - Marine Park near the island. There are incredibly beautiful nature and a lot of uninhabited islands. If you wish, you can stay there overnight. Copyright

Ko Pha Ngan is an ideal place where you can teach your child the basics of snorkelling. There is a very rich wildlife area and a coral atoll near the beach of Plai Laem. If your child is interested in diving, you can dive near Koh Phangan, near the neighbouring Samui, and on the territory of Ang Thong. There are plenty of sets for beginners here. Young snorkelers and divers will surely enjoy being near Ko Ma, a tiny island that can be reached by renting a boat on Mae Haad Beach.
There are many entertaining activities on the island that will surely please every child. In addition to hiking, you can learn how to paddle a kayak, go water skiing or go fishing in a race with adults. There are beaches for every taste- for those children who adore noisy companies of children of the same age and for those who love to be in a silent and secluded place. Salad Beach attracts people with its purest white sand, Chalocles is a perfect secluded beach, and Thong Nai Pan Noi is ideal for active children who do not like to lie on the beach because you can walk in the nearby grove here.
Anantara Rasananda resort situated at the charming beach of Thong Nai Pan has remained one of the most famous and sought after hotels of Koh Pha Ngan for many years. The resort offers a … Open
Ko Pha Ngan is an ideal place to tell your child about world religions and Buddhism. There are many temples, some of which are dedicated to gods and mythical creatures from different religions. The child will surely like the idea to see all the sanctuaries in the Chinese temple. There are statues of Buddha, Indian and Chinese heroes of epos and just magical beasts. You should definitely show the old Wat Phu Khao Noi temple and modern Wat Pha Sang Tham to your child. However, you should remember that there are certain rules of decency in the local temples that must be observed by both adults and children.
