Thailand’s Full Moon Party – The World’s Greatest Beach Party at Koh Phangan
Ever wonder what the “World Famous Full Moon Party of Koh Phangan Thailand” is all about? Take a look at this video:
Drinking, women, mushroom shakes – it’s all there waiting for you. Gods of Thailand Tip: Do not buy any sort of illegal substances from Thai men in combat boots. They are police.
You can get to the Full Moon party by taking a boat from the main land where some arrive in Koh Phangan a couple days early. However, most take a speed boat from Koh Samui the night of the party.
Leaving from Koh Samui the night of the party is preferable. The nightlife of the days leading up to the Full Moon Party is better in Samui than Koh Phangan.
Getting to the Full Moon Party from Koh Samui:
1-During the Day If you want to spend the day in Koh Phangan. Take one of the many boats throughout the day. The cost is around 500 baht. Tickets can be purchased at any travel agency.
2-During the Night The Full Moon party doesn’t really start until around 10pm – Midnight. No point in going there early if you only want to party.
In Chaweng all the taxis will take you to the pier for free. When you arrive at the pier you can buy a roundtrip speed boat ticket for 800 baht. The boat ride is about 20 minutes and leaves every hour. You can party all night at the Full Moon Party then come back to Samui in the morning.
You can buy tickets at the pier or any travel agency on Samui.
Note: Entrance fee to the Full Moon Party is 100 baht.
