Something you should experience once in your life: the Full Moon Party in Koh Phangan! It is rumored that the first full moon party was held in the late 80’s as a farewell to one of the long term guests staying in Koh Phangan. The tradition is well kept alive until now with a massive outdoor party each month on the night of the full moon in Haad Rin beach. Just make sure you don’t lose your friends in the 20000 party heads that crowd this famous strip of beach!
When you are in Thailand, do pay a visit to Koh Phangan and make sure you get there in time for their monthly infamous Full Moon party! Each month before the moon becomes full, this little island becomes a place where people from all corners of the globe come to congregate and get ready to let loose!
Did you know it’s scientifically proven that the full moon can bring the madness out of you? Well it is surely verified when you come to this full moon party, held monthly at Haad Rin beach!
On full moon festivity night, Haad Rin beach is fully transformed into party central with a wide choice of clubs and bars pumping sounds from a live DJ set directly on the beach. The beauty is, if you enjoy the music, stop and dance like there’s no tomorrow and when a corny track pops up, walk into either direction for your choice of sound! Enjoy the abundance of buckets filled with local Thai whisky (Sam Song) sold in the many beach booze vendors. To be in the mood, get your body painted for 300 baht before you get jiggy! Time for the loo? Make your way down to the ocean to do your biz like the other partygoers. Just don’t leave your clothes on the beach to go skinny-dipping. When you are finally worn off and hunger is slowly creeping up, don’t you worry, because there are plenty of munchies everywhere!
It was my first Full Moon party and I’ll do it again in a heartbeat! One thing I regret is that I was too chickened out to bring my digicam, but my fishy did a good job nonetheless!
Oh ya, don’t forget to get those cool neon light glasses to complete your party gear!
