Time: Every month, every year
Venue: Koh Phangan
Clearly, some of Thailand’s main attractions are its diversity; temples, history, culture, mountains, valleys, beaches, and nightlife. However, there is yet another dimension to the kingdom… Thailand is home to the world’s biggest beach parties ever – events that in their own right bring thousands of people to Thailand’s shores every year.
The first Full Moon Party was improvised at a wooden disco not far from the beach in 1985, for giving thanks to about 20-30 travelers. The parties gained fame through word of mouth, and the event now draws a crowd of about 20,000-30,000 every full moon evening. The party carries on until the sun rises the next day. The bars on the sunrise beach of Haad Rin town stay open and play music such as psychedelic trance, R&B, drum and bass, house, dance and reggae. The modern event has become a part of the itinerary of many travelers to South East Asia. Its attractions include fire skipping ropes, alcohol buckets, dancing, body painting, and drinking. This is an event for those who love a good party not to miss.
