Didn’t we all think that we somehow got serious water problems here on Koh Pha-Ngan Paradise Island in the Gulf of Thailand?
Well … at least at the moment there are plenty of water supplies available in most critical areas of the island. Koh Phangan just got hit by a low pressure area the last couple of days and it resulted in lots and lots of rain for the last 3 days. Becki has never seen that much rain in the last 10 years and it was a quite impressive and awesome experience, reminding us of the power of Mother Nature!
Most areas of Koh Phangan like Baan Tai, Baan Khai, Thongsala, Sri Thanu, Wok Tum and so on were flooded to a high critical level! Also the main road access from Baan Khai to world famous Full Moon Party beach Haad Rin is temporarily closed at the moment due to recovery work. Massive rocks got washed out by the rain blocking the road. Landslides … mud … stones on the road … overtaken trees and electric pylons created a TOTAL DISASTER!
Even while writing this article the electric power supply on Koh Phangan shuts down from time to time. The situation here is indeed more than critical! Washed out bridges … collapsed roads … flooded houses … what else did we ask for?
Haad Rin village, the host of the monthly Full Moon Disaster Event, even received severe damage! Unfortunately Becki couldn’t have a look there as the road is blocked at the moment but the word on the street is that the lake embankment at Haadrin village collapsed and flooded most of the shops located close to the pier leaving to Koh Samui Island!

Also some road parts, offering access to the northern area like Thong Nai Pan and Than Sadet, collapsed and caused massive damage! And again, Becki couldn’t go there as our black Apache helicopter from Island News headquarters is unfortunately on a secret mission in the middle east at the moment – sorry 😉
Thongsala main village also experienced a massive traffic chaos as our brainiacs from the local district office decided to do some deep digging in the middle of the raining season. So the re-construction work in main village Thong Sala created another chaos which perfectly blended in to the natural daily insanity on Koh Phangan Paradise Island!
Well … please forget about Tsunami! Forget about Iraq and shitty hurricanes in the United States of America! We got a MASSIVE situation here and need your help! Or let’s better say … want YOUR MONEY 😉
“We want to ask you for a 500 Baht (US$ 10) donation. 23% of the income going back into improving Koh Phangan’s stupidity, and a partnership with ‘Save The Lunatics’ ensuring a chunk of sponsorship proceeds goes to victims of the recent devastating flooding disaster of Koh Phangan. We are building better water storage facilities and acquiring a unique flooding pre-warn system for the future. We will be modernizing the whole island with providing new 23 story hotels, amazingly safe sudden death taxi services, new hooker facilities and vastly improved instability and corruption services.”
