Full Moon Party Koh Phangan

Full Moon Party Koh Phangan

Posted By : WTFARES/ 510 0

Full Moon Party Koh Phangan

Booze and dance, the evening can be summed up in just two words, like any other party, but what makes the full moon bash of Koh Phangan so creatively unique to book a spot on almost everyone’s to-do list? Many travelers do not leave Thailand without participating in the craziness of the exotic event that takes place every month. Some people come from afar just to attend the party and shred off their sobriety until they are compelled off to their regular lives.

 

 

Full Moon Party Koh Phangan takes place in Haad Rin Beach, the biggest beach in the Island. Although the idea behind the bash mainly constitutes of shimmering of bodies under light or dark effects of alcohol, it offers much more than that. The whole place consists of beachfront clubs offering a diversity in music that gets your feet to jiggle on their own. There is no restriction or boundaries and anyone can dance anywhere, anyhow for the whole night. DJs come from all over the world to perform and ravish the already pumped up crowd in neon colors and skin paint (definitely not to miss). There is a club that offers a chance to shake a leg with fire, and that is not even a pun. Fireworks are the cherries on top of a huge Island-sized cake, adding to the already blazed atmosphere. Apart from all this, there is a quiet zone where people can rest if they are tired or lost in their philosophical stage of drunkenness.

The pre-full moon bash is also as happening as the main one. The island turns into a party queen around the time of the full moon. Its almost as if everyone’s unleashing the werewolf within.

The Island has a spiritual touch and serenity to it, but one day of every month, it relaxes a bit and goes all hipster under the bright moon. The whole atmosphere becomes almost as hilariously tempting as the macarena from Hotel Transylvania 3.

 

Awareness

The night is all about Alcohol, party, and dancing and it calls for a serious list of Do’s and Don’ts

  • Drugs are illegal in Thailand and there is going to be a lot of that in the party. Keep this in mind before getting ahead with anything. Also, undercover police cops may try to trick you into buying drugs and arrest you later. Most people go there to enjoy and end up stuck in the legal affairs of courts.
  • Booze in the party can be pretty expensive, buy alcohol beforehand and take it with you in the party. It is allowed to carry your own alcohol in the event.
  • There is an entry fee of 100 Baht (220 INR), charged for after party cleaning.
  • Carry some extra money for using the Bathrooms, as there is a pay to use the system. You will have to pay some 15- 20 Baht (Around 40 INR).
  • Do NOT bring any valuables, especially your passport and other important documents with you. Aside from the blithe atmosphere, there is also lively stealing and the last thing you want is to be stranded and lost on the littered beach with a massive hangover.
  • There are lots of broken shards of glass spread around the beach so watch your feet unless you want to especially break- dance on the glass.
  • Don’t get drunk too soon, you have the whole night left for a whole lot of activities. Many people are seen lying on the beach just as the party is getting started.
  • Don’t go to the full moon party alone. The island will be full of strangers and many will try to take advantage of you.
  • Avoid the ocean and the temptation of a midnight swim, especially when you are not completely sober.
  • This advice has been handed down by the ancestors and now off to you, DON’T ACCEPT DRINKS FROM STRANGERS, being drugged and tricked is the last thing you want to happen to you
  • Carry an emergency first aid kit with you, just in case you couldn’t resist hugging the fire. There have been many cases of people getting burned from one of the fire activities out of their own stupidity.
  • Don’t drink too much that you can’t even recognize anything. Enjoy yourself but don’t be completely impulsive and ignorant.
  • Ease on the bucket, they may not look strong but they rush to your heads so fast that in no time you get uncontrollably drunk.
  • Don’t take your moped or motor scooters down the beach. Use taxis.
  • Skip the jump rope activity unless you are completely sober and completely sure of yourself.
  • You will need to hydrate yourself, all through the event. Drink a lot of water, especially after the event.
  • Buy alcohol from shops instead of the street vendors and always check for the seal.

The full Moon Bash is something one should definitely not miss. The atmosphere is too charged up and everyone has a blast. You just need to exercise some caution where it is obvious and not let the booze hamper with your common sense. It is not for nothing the party is singled out for bucket lists in almost every person’s list.

Kon Phangan Island

Koh Phan Gan is situated in the south-east part of the country in the Gulf of Thailand. Belonging to the Samui Archipelago Group of Islands, it is the fifth biggest Island of the country. Lying 47 Km South to Koh Tao and 12 Km North to Koh Samui, it is one of the most visited places in Thailand. It has an area of 125 sq. km that hosts one of the most exuberant Full moon parties, attracting almost 30,000 tourists and travelers across the world.

 

Geography

The mountainous region is enveloped by white sandy beaches and emerald with wilderness in its heart. More than half of its area is designated as a national park. Any classic Island stories, the mermaid, Don Quixote (minus the slavery of course), the lost from world Island romance and the most captivating Pirate Captain Jack Sparrow, can be spun here into a roleplay surrounded by its exquisite beauty.

 

 

The Island has different areas, each furnishing something new and different.

Thong Sala is more commercially- centric and a good place to visit if you want to shop or eat. The street market at night is a major attraction here and definitely not to miss. This is also the main disembarkment point of many ferries and boats, the other being Haad Rin. A police station is just outside the area and there are plenty of ATMs and banks for a traveler’s needs. Baan Tai and Haad rin are the party areas especially known for their nightlife. Many backpackers crash there for cheap stay-ins, hippie shops, and affordable eats. The tri-bay (Haad Thien/Whynam/Haad Yuan) area with its mild nightlife and laidback vibes also offers a visual treat surrounded by cliffs and wilderness. It’s a must visit although comparatively expensive than the other areas. The island also has two villages, (Thong Nai Pan Noi/Thong Nai Pan Yai) perfect for a trip with the family. Quite secluded and lost in itself, the area has a decent atmosphere with not many parties and craziness. Bottle beach is idle if you want to shut everyone out and spend some time with yourself. Reserved and distant, with not much in the name of nightlife or loud music and noise. Chaloklum village is the primary fishing village and that is exactly the kind of vibe you will get in the Chaloklum beach. The place is beautifully crafted with yellow and slightly coarser sand. There are many seafood restaurants for a delightful meal. Haad Salad and Mae Haad are family friendly areas and stunning beaches. Sri Thanu is the yoga-centered place with its yoga and tantra schools, and more spiritual in nature.

If you arrive at the island a few days before the party, book your room beforehand. The full moon party is a peak time and hotels and hostels start getting full 4-5 days beforehand.

If you visit the Island especially for the full moon bash, it is advisable to stay near or at the Haad Rin Beach, where the party will eventually take place.

Recommendations:

 

Budget Hotels (1000-5000 INR)

Coconut Beach resort and spa, Had Rin

If you only want to attend the Full moon party and are looking to discard the option of staying at Koh Phangan, then you can take a ferry from Koh Samui and reach the Island by dusk. You can take part in the activities and fun that the Bash entails and leave for Koh Samui in the morning. Many people do this but it is quite a hustle especially around the full moon bash, long waiting hours, hyped prices and boiled up the mood. It is recommended to stay a few days in Kon Phangan before the bash.

What to bring

Apart from the obvious money, clothes and undergarments; Swimwear and raincoats are the must as you will be going to swim in the water. Even if you don’t plan to (that is stupid) one of your friends are bound to throw you in the water. Also carry a jumper as it can get cold in the night especially in December. Carry all the necessary documents including your license and don’t forget your shoes at home.  Bring an emergency first aid kit, some emergency snacks. Lastly, don’t forget to take your brains especially during the party hours.

Koh Phangan Vs Koh Phi Phi

Thailand is one country that sure knows how to throw a party. There are many places that host full moon parties apart from Koh Phangan.

The full moon party at Koh Phi Phi is a less grandeur affair compared to that of Koh Phangan, not many revellers know about it or go there, as many prefer to crash over at Koh Phangan. Koh Phi Phi seems comparatively quieter than Koh Phangan though the party itself isn’t some amateur new charm. It has its own appeal like every other party. It is almost similar to Koh Phangan in construct but a lot of crazy things and activities like snorkeling, fire stunts, partying on the party ship and much more than the make the full moon party at Phi Phi a different experience. While Koh Phangan is something definitely not to miss, Koh Phi Phi isn’t that far back in line.

As far as comparison is concerned, Full Moon Party Koh Phangan is the ultimate affair and people come from far off places, sometimes just for that.

Every person has different experiences and some may like Koh Phi Phi better, while others may head for Koh Phangan

 

Summing Up

The Full Moon Party Koh Phangan is one of the most happening events in the world, so don’t think too much and get your bosom on the island. You will have the most amazing time making new friends, trying new cuisines and splashing all around the Island.
