Full Moon Party in Koh Phangan, Thailand

by Sue

Question: I would like any advice for travelling to the full moon party in Thailand, also where to stay etc.

Answer: Coral bungalows is supposed to be good, heard from some travelers that it was nice enough, with pool and everything! Book in advance whether you choose Coral or other accommodation on Koh Phangan!!! The cheap/mid-priced accommodation fills up very quickly before full moon party.... I remember we had trouble getting decent accommodation just before the full moon in April (2010), and ended up at a shitty guesthouse.

If you want a more "quiet" place to stay on Koh Phangan, you should not stay in Had Rin. Try the neighboring beaches -- it's not that far to Had Rin from other beaches on the island, and on full moon there's regular transport to Had Rin.

When it comes to advice for traveling to the full moon party, here are some tips:

-- Wear shoes if you can. There will be broken glass on the beach and it can ugly if you step on it

-- Don't swim in the ocean -- there will be bottles floating near shore and people pee and do whatever they want in that water

-- There are thousands of people there so keep your valuables close to you (bring none if you can)

-- If you're partying with other people on full moon, make a plan in case you lose each other. Choose a special spot to meet in case you get lost.

Love Thailand, the best part I would say is Koh Phangan Island as well with www.safariboat.info and the Island koh phangan tour was incredible, never expected such a nice place. the service was supergood and we enjoy also Angthong marine park with them. after we saw koh Phangan with Safari boat we felt love with island. That was the real holiday. recommended for everyone!
