Koh Phangan Island is one of Thailand’s most popular tourist spots, the island is well known for scuba diving and snorkeling. Yet another boisterous night-long celebration, the Full Moon Party, which is tied to the lunar calendar, draws revelers to its southeastern peninsula. The island offers a plethora of opportunities for wellness, meditation and yoga.

Brand TD by Travel Daily Media (Brand TD). How does the unique environment of Koh Phangan Island contribute to the overall wellness and well-being of its residents?

On Koh Phangan Island, the unique environment contributes to residents’ wellness and well-being, highlighted by the island’s natural beauty, community focus, and crystal composition, which enhances manifestation of wellness. There is a large local population and acceptance of expatriates, traditional practices, and cultural rituals.

In neighboring Koh Tao, Thailand, the wellness and cultural exchange scene is thriving, with a reputation also for world class diving.

Brand TD: The Full Moon Party is a well known and significant event, attracting many overseas visitors; however, what wellness initiatives or programs are currently in place on Koh Phangan Island to support the community’s mental and physical health?

I would like to emphasize the island’s spiritual side, including ecstatic dances and sound healing. Our Yoga culture is prevalent on the island, with daily practices and rituals considered essential for achieving wellness. Music has a way of creating healing power so we encourage and integrate local and expat musicians with uplifting performances.

Food and music are universal languages that promote wellness, with a focus on healthy eating and sound healing and at the same time taking care of the environment is always on the forefront of our minds as locals.

Sharing a family vibe, supporting each other, avoiding competition and confrontation is key to healthy living and I have noticed a more sharing and caring mentality in Koh Phangan Island post-COVID, with expats and locals bonding over food and music particularly.

Brand TD: Can you tell us about curating the wellness festival program to find a balance between spiritual practices and making events accessible to all community members.

Festival organizers aim to create a comfortable and inclusive environment for all. We research ways to better promote cultural events like Chakra to overseas visitors interested in local traditions. Our wellness festivals emphasize personal growth and community service and the residents of Koh Phangan Island value nature and community, with a focus on wellness and yoga.

We promote an emphasis on the importance of daily practice and lifestyle change in healing. Further integrate local Thai culture and traditions into annual wellness festival events to make all attendees feel comfortable.
