Full Moon Party in Thailand

Full Moon Party is an all-night beach party that takes place in Haad Rin Beach on Koh Phangan, Thailand on the night of every full moon. 

Full Moon Party (Koh Phangan) Once upon a time Haad Rin Beach on nearby Koh Phangan was a secret haven for a few hippy backpackers who could only get to the beach by boat. Currently, however, Haad Rin is packed with bungalows, bars, pizza joints and even a 7-11. Every month on full-moon a huge party is held; one that has become internationally renowned. All through the night party-goers can drink and dance to the latest rave sounds played by well-known DJs from around the world. Literally ten of thousands appear solely for the point of joining in the action.

How to get to Full Moon Party, Koh Phangan

Koh Phangan takes approximately 45 minutes from Koh Samui Island by boat. There are special services on the night of the full-moon, though there tend to be many more tickets sold than actual seats in boats, resulting in very long waits in line, especially on the Koh Phangan side.

Full Moon Party Tips

  • Do not bring your valuables to the party. Thousands people are there, you'll never catch the thief.
  • Keep away from drugs, no matter what anyone says. Someone might try to sell them to you but remember drugs are illegal in Thailand and very strong penalties.
  • Do not eat or drink anything that is offered by strangers.
  • If you don't plan to stay up all night at the party, you are advised to stay in bungalow facilities outside Haad Rin (unless you think you can sleep with that very loud party noise). Besides, there are more than hundred bungalow places to choose and you can go back to your bungalow anytime you like by all night taxi service. is a registered travel agent with the Tourism Authority of Thailand.
