My experience with All Yoga was absolutely memorable and a journey that brought people together. It was full of fantastic mentors, teachings and l got to know myself better. I stayed at Beam accommodation which was so much fun as lots of us stayed together in the very spacious dorm that was only used by All Yoga training students. We quickly became a family – saying goodnight and getting familiar with each other’s morning and evening rituals and habits. In the end l knew exactly which alarm belonged to whom! After the walk up the small hill (nicknamed ‘hill-asana’) we would reach our beautiful Shala up in the green with an overview of the bay – the best view for a sunrise. This was our home base – were we laughed, chanted, sweated and most of all grew as yogis and people. Coming from background of office desks and banking, it has been the best learning and practice environment I have ever had.read more ×

As with most tourist destinations, be wary of thieves and protect yourself against petty crime by exercising caution when withdrawing cash from an ATM and making sure not to carry large sums of money on your person. It’s also recommended that you keep your money and valuables close to you to avoid being targeted by thieves on motorcycles.
Koh Phangan, like all places in Thailand, is very safe and easy to get to. There are a number of travel options to the island, which you can view.
There are many solo travelers visiting Thailand per year. Chances are you will meet like-minded people along the way and strike up interesting conversations. Nevertheless, the best advice is to practice common sense. Don’t venture alone into unsafe areas at night, keep your belongings safe, and correspond with someone you know back home so they know your whereabouts.
It is recommended to have photocopies (print and digital versions) of your passport and travel visas. In the event of loss or theft this will make it easier for your country’s embassy to fast track a replacement.

Koh Phangan is well connected with reliable Wi-Fi in most hotels, hostels and cafes. Short stay sim cards are also cheap, and can be bought on arrival at most airports.

|Thailand’s climate varies throughout the year. High season is between November and early April where the country enjoys cooler and drier weather. The weather becomes more hot and humid February to May before the rainy season hits the end of May lasting until October. In the south, the climate differs between the eastern and western coasts: the west coast is most favourable during the winter months, while the east coast enjoys mostly good weather year-round.
|Thailand, known as the ‘Land of a Thousand Smiles’, has a friendly population who are very welcoming and hospitable to visitors. The local culture has a mix of Indian, Chinese and uniquely Thai traditions, with a large influence from Buddhism, which can be seen in many traditions and beliefs of the country. Local food, dance, music and celebrations play an important role in Thai life.
While Thailand is a very hospitable and open country, there are some important social conventions to be aware of. It is a criminal offence to disrespect the royal family, so travellers should be mindful to treat objects depicting the king (like Baht notes) with respect.
Many cultural sites, in particular temples and museums, won’t allow people inside if they are inappropriately dressed. Be sure to dress modestly covering shoulders and legs. Avoid touching anyone on the head and be careful where you point your feet (metaphorically considered the lowest part of the body).
|The local language is Thai, however, English is widely spoken and understood.
|Currency in Thailand is Thai Baht.
