early morning when it's peaceful and quiet.
Koh Phangan:The tropical island in Southern Thailand where Haad Rin is located.
Haad Rin Sunrise Beach:Haad Rin has two beaches, but the main beach and the most popular beach for sunbathing is Haad Rin Sunrise Beach (also known as Haad Rin Nok, 'nok' being Thai for sunrise).
Haad Rin Sunset Beach:Haad Rin Sunset Beach (Haad Rin Nai) is only a five or ten minute walk across the peninsula from Sunrise Beach, and although the actual beach itself is not a great beach, the area is popular with people who want to stay somewhere a bit quieter where they can sleep at night without hearing the music from the clubs on Sunrise Beach.
Thong Sala:This is the main village on Koh Phangan and where most ferries arrive. From here it’s approximately seven kilometres to Haad Rin, but songthaew taxis usually wait for each ferry that arrives, so it’s straight forward to get from Thong Sala to Haad Rin.
Surat Thani:This is the mainland town in Thailand from which ferries to Koh Phangan depart. Surat Thani has no tourist ttractions and the only reason people visit it is as a transit point on the way to Koh Phangan (or Koh Samui).
