Bucket List: Full Moon Beach Party Ko Phangan, Thailand

Apr 9, 2012 by     3 Comments    Posted under: Bucket List

New Year’s Eve is my favorite holiday next to Halloween, and I will be adding a lot of New Year’s celebrations on my bucket list. I’ve been wanting to publish the Full Moon party for quite some time now, but haven’t found a good website to link it to. Luckily, I happened upon a post in Alex in Wanderland and turns out that this party is better than I imagined! Black lights and body paint, lanterns, fire dancers (my Burning Man senses are tingling!), the list goes on!

Here they are rockin’ it out with glow in the dark body paint…

The Full Moon website describes:

“Koh Phangan is a very special place, there are few places in this world where you can live out your desert island dreams of palm trees and white sand beaches, and still have a blinding night out at a rocking party every month. With the global notoriety that the Full Moon Party has gained as being one of the biggest and best beach bashes in the world, we get more than our fair share of hedonists gracing our shores. Each year the scene here grows with the ever-increasing number of party faithful that return, bringing their mates and spreading the vibe.

Haad Rin is home to the Full Moon Party and also houses about 3-5000 rather mad people; it is the island’s nightlife capital and has Koh Phangan’s biggest concentration of beach clubs that collectively put on the ultimate travellers get together. There are over 12 major sound systems running the length of Had Rin beach, catering for 8000 to 12,000 punters in low season, 15,000 to 20,000 in high season and up to 30,000 at New Year. Within this transient crowd of party animals some highly talented DJ’s pass through, banging out their wares to the raging lunar explorers that have landed on planet party.”

Sounds delightful!

  • Koh Phangan is world-famous for its Full Moon parties, with up to 30,000 people partying on the beach in Koh Phangan Resort to share sweat with people from all over the world! The party peaks at sunrise and eventually tapers off in the afternoon, leaving a scene of carnage behind on the beach. Full Moon Parties are chaotic but lots of fun, and generally considered a rite of passage in Southeast Asia.
