Pyramid Yoga Centre, the breathtaking venue of our festival, is located on the small, beautiful tropical island of Koh Phangan in the Gulf of Thailand, a sister island to Koh Samui. Nestled on the forested hillsides of the north side of the island between Haad Yao and Chaloklum, we are most easily accessed from Thong Sala Town by car.
The most direct way to get Koh Phangan is to fly from Bangkok to the nearby island of Koh Samui with Bangkok Air. Thai Air also flies to Koh Samui so check out their offers too. Note that Bangkok Air has a very flexible ‘change your ticket’ policy and they have 20 flights a day to and from the islands. Once you arrive at the airport, you can book a ferry ticket to Thong Sala Pier on Koh Phangan.
Nok Air and various other airlines also fly from Bangkok to Surat Thani town, this is a cheaper flight but the connection via bus and ferry makes this a longer journey.
Koh Phangan island is easily accessible by boat from several places in southern Thailand. Most boats arrive on Koh Phangan at one of two towns, Thong Sala or Haad Rin. Thong Sala is the nearest pier to our festival site. If your boat lands in Thong Sala, some resorts offer pick up from the pier, or you can be taken to your resort via taxi truck (between 200-300B defending on its location).

Here on the island, there are a wealth of choices to suit any taste and budget. Trip Advisor and booking.com can be really helpful here. By checking the location of the venue, you can make your choices accordingly. This is peak season so we really advise you to book well in advance.
For your departure, the ferries towards Koh Samui and Donsak (Surat Thani) begin leaving Thong Sala at 5am and run through the day. You will need to check that you can link the ferry and flight departure time, or you may need to spend an overnight in either Koh Samui or Surat Thani the night before.
If you will spend more than 1 month in Thailand, we strongly recommend getting a Thai tourist visa in your home country. Most travelers are issued a 30-day tourist visa upon arrival in Thailand at one of the country’s international airports, but do check this before if you are uncertain. If you cross the Thai border by road you will only be given a 15-day visa.
