Full Moon Party
on Koh Phangan Island

The sign says it all


Every month Thailand's famous Full Moon Party brings together between twenty and fifty thousand revellers to Haad Rin Beach on Koh Phangan Island. Located in the Gulf of Thailand, Koh Phangan has become known throughout the western world as the party place to be and be seen. Some may argue that the island of Ibiza off the Spanish coast is the party place to be and be seen.



But nobody is complaining when you see the hoards of mostly young backpacking partygoers flocking to this island to let their hair down, get drunk, rave all night and simply have a good time. Tomorrow may be another day, but tonight it's party time.

Every now and then you hear rumours circulating that these parties have been moved to another island or in a worst case scenario, cancelled altogether. Rumours they may be, but I can assure you the parties have neither been cancelled or moved to another island. They're here to stay on Koh Phangan and will not be going anywhere else now or for that matter any other time.

Gossip such as this tends to crop up periodically every so often and it invariably sends backpackers worldwide into a total spin. Stories doing their rounds that the world's most famous full moon party is being moved or cancelled is simply not true.

A recent rumour started after one prominent public protector suggested that the parties were bad for the image of this pristine island, but those in the tourism industry no better. Rest assure these parties are here to stay.

Getting to Koh Phangan is relatively easy. You can catch a direct flight from Hong Kong, Singapore as well as some other parts of the world to the island of Koh Samui and from there it's a short boat ride to Koh Phangan.

However, most tourists will travel via Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok to the international airport on Koh Samui. You can also take a bus, train or flight to Surat Thani on the Thai mainland, and from there, go by ferry to Koh Phangan.

Just remember that over these party periods, accommodation on Koh Phangan will be at a premium,  so hotels and resorts will be fairly expensive. Alternatively, you can stay over on Koh Samui as there are plenty of rooms available.
