Among Europeans, the city's Bohemian reputation is due partially to its famous Full Moon Party, a night of partying and decadent dancing that takes place on Haad Rin Beach. The glamorous and decadent lifestyles of young foreign tourists on the beaches near Koh Phangan served as the inspiration for Alex Garland's 1997 novel, "The Beach."In addition to the beaches, other local attractions include Than Sadet National Park, the nearby island of Ko Ma (which has some of the area's best snorkeling opportunities), and the medicinal sauna of Wat Pho.
