// FULL MOON PARTY THAILAND !

Thailand’s world-famous Full Moon Party on Koh Phangan takes epic to a whole new level! With up to 40,000 party goers on Sunrise Beach of Haad Rin, Koh Phangan it’s the most famous party in the world.  Ultimate Thailand tours will run alongside the Full moon party certain times throughout the year. Check out our 2019 and 2020 tour dates below.

We definitely want you to remember the night (you are bound to forget) for the right reasons though, so here’s the Ultimate guide to surviving the Full Moon Party!

WHEN ARE THE FULL MOON PARTIES?

Full Moon Parties happen every month, but dates are adjusted around Buddhist holidays so do not always coincide with the night of the actual full moon. View the list of party dates shown.

WHEN SHOULD I ARRIVE?

We suggest arriving in Koh Phangan at least 5-7 days in advance of a Full Moon Party, as finding accommodation during the busy season is nearly impossible.

FINDING ACCOMMODATION

Don’t bother booking online, any rooms you find will be at the more expensive end of the scale and will probably have a minimum stay that doesn’t fit in with your plans. There are plenty of places to stay that will only be found by walking around and asking directly.

MAYBE STAY ON ANOTHER ISLAND

If you can’t get there as early as recommended, look at staying on a different island and booking a ferry to and from the party. You won’t have to pay an increased rate for a room, you can get there the day before and your head will probably appreciate the peace and quiet the next morning!

WHAT OTHER PARTIES ARE THERE?

Koh Phangan is known to be the party mecca of Thailand with it’s Full Moon, Half Moon, Black Moon, Waterfall and Jungle Parties. Unfortunately, the local government has recently banned big parties despite the Full Moon until further notice. Though, not to worry! Our resort on the island hosts their own UV parties. 🙂

COPY YOUR ID

Take a copy of your ID rather than the real thing – worrying the next day about how to replace your lost or stolen passport is not going to help with your hangover!

CASH AND CARDS

You should also take a set amount of money out with you and leave your cards/wallet/purse behind. Again, you will run the risk of losing this one way or another. If you run out of money while you’re there, it’s likely because you don’t need to be spending any more!

VALUABLE BELONGINGS

It’s common sense but worth saying anyway! Don’t take expensive belongings with you. Obviously, you will want to take pictures (probably to remind you in the morning of all the crazy things you did/new friends you made!) so buy a disposable camera. If you really want to take your good camera out, upload all your current pictures online beforehand, just in case. Cameras can be replaced, pictures can’t!

WEAR SHOES

Thousands of people on a beach means broken bottles and cut feet galore, so wear footwear of some kind 0r you’ll end up like Bruce Willis in Die Hard! They don’t have to be your favourite shoes, in fact, we’d advise against it, but glass in the feet is sure to be more of a nuisance than a pair of flip flops!

CRAZY STUFF

There’s plenty of entertainment at the Full Moon Party and whilst we won’t tell you not to get involved, we will ask you to use your judgement … If fire rope jumping is something you just have to tick off your bucket list, it’s probably a good idea to do it before you’ve had too many buckets and can still stand! The burns can be painful and, again, will make that hangover a lot worse!

BUCKETS

Speaking of too many buckets – take your time, you have all night. Try and drink water as you go … it’s a marathon, not a sprint!

DONT SWIM AT NIGHT

You may be tempted to take a dip in the water at some point in the night … erm, we use the term water rather lightly! Take away the obvious safety issues involved when you put drunken people in the water, and just consider where all those thousands of people are going to the toilet. They aren’t all queuing for the portaloos! Washing your hands or face, or trying to clean any cuts you may get, in the sea will not give the desired effect!

DRUGS

Thailand has very strict laws as far as drugs are involved … if you are caught offering or asking for drugs, taking them or even talking about them, you could find yourself in a lot of trouble! Expensive trouble! It’s just not worth it.

BUDDY-UP

Take care of each other. Try not to wander off on your own but have a plan for if you do lose your friends. It’s unlikely you’ll have your phone with you and it will be very difficult to find them again in the crowds. So agree to meet up somewhere at a certain time if you lose each other.

DRINK WATER

In the morning, you might find yourself waking up on the beach … the sun can get very hot, very quickly. You’ll be dehydrated so get some water as soon as you can. Get some sunscreen on and if you have something to cover up with, great!
