What should I pack when moving to Koh Phangan?

Answer this Question

We asked people living in Koh Phangan to list three things they wish they had brought and three they wish they had left behind. They responded...

"When moving to Koh Phangan, you should pack lightweight and breathable clothing, such as shorts, t-shirts, and sundresses, as the weather is hot and humid. Bring a swimsuit and a beach towel for enjoying the beautiful beaches and water activities. Pack a light rain jacket or umbrella, as the island experiences occasional rain showers. Don't forget comfortable walking shoes or sandals, as well as a pair of flip-flops for the beach. Bring a hat and sunglasses to protect yourself from the sun, along with sunscreen and insect repellent. Pack any necessary prescription medications, as well as a basic first aid kit with items like band-aids, pain relievers, and any over-the-counter medications you may need. Bring a reusable water bottle to stay hydrated and reduce plastic waste. Make sure to pack your passport, driver's license, and any other important documents, as well as photocopies of these documents in case of loss or theft. Bring enough cash for your initial expenses, as well as a credit or debit card for emergencies. Pack a power adapter for your electronic devices, as Thailand uses a different plug type than many other countries. Bring a lightweight, quick-drying towel for use at the beach or after a shower. Lastly, pack a small daypack or beach bag for carrying your belongings while exploring the island, and a reusable shopping bag for groceries or other purchases," said another expat in Koh Phangan, Thailand.
