THE LOCATION

Thailand Contact and Ecstatic Arts Festival on Koh Phangan will be held at Pyramid Yoga Center. The center is situated on a hill within the tropical jungle fauna and provides a superb wooden dance floor, probably the best floor on the island for Contact Improvisation!

Once arrived in Koh Phagnan

Once you arrived in Koh Phangan, you can either rent a scooter to go to Srithanu, the nearest village to Pyramid Yoga with plenty accommodation options, cafes and restaurants. We recommend getting a scooter whilst on the island, it comes in very handy to move around. Alternatively you take a cab from the pier to your accommodation. Cab buses can be caught almost everywhere around the island.
