STOP TRAINING! START PLAYING!

Harder, better, faster, stronger. In work, in sports, in daily life… These days goals are expressed in superlatives like these. By going back to nature and moving away from the dogmatic training systems and drawing from different disciplines Momentum invites us to move our own way. Different ingredients, the same recipe: play. Who said training can't be fun?

Momentum is the Mixed Movement Arts focused experiences in Koh Phangan/Thailand, for strengthening the body, exploring & expressing the potential of natural movement with integrity to playful like-minded community. At the movement facility, tucked away in the scenic hills of Koh Phangan, we welcome everybody at daily classes and workshops. At the precisely organised retreats, we provide authentic movement-oriented holiday experience with the chance to taste local food and immerse into island nature and culture.

Directions

Traveling by Plane
There is no direct plane landing on Koh Phangan. The easiest and shortest way to fly the neighboring island Koh Samui and then take the ferry to Koh Phangan Thongsala Pier (30 min way). The cheaper but longer option is to fly to Surat Thani Airport. From there you'll need to take a bus and ferry to Koh Phangan Thongsala Pier (the trip all together will take around 4 hours). We will provide pick up from Thongsala Pier at designated times (depending on group’s arrival) and provide transport to villa.

Traveling by Train
This is a much cheaper alternate from flying. However, the journey can be quite rough and long. We only recommend traveling this way if you’re on a tight budget or really up for an adventure! Simply take a train from Bangkok to Surat Thani. On arrival at Surat Thani railway station, shuttle bus meets the train and takes you to the Don Sak ferry terminal. The bus is included if you’ve purchased the train+ferry fare. Ferries sail every hour from Don Sak to Koh Samui, crossing time 1.5 hours. Some ferries continue to Koh Phangan. You can buy the combined train+ferry tickets at Bangkok Hualamphong station reservations office, or online for a small handling fee.

Group transport from/to Thong Sala Pier to/from the venue is included to the package.
