Planning a trip to Thailand? Do check if it coincides with the exhilarating Full Moon Party as this modern event has become a part of the itinerary of many travellers in Southeast Asia.
The Full Moon Party is an all-night beach party on the island of Ko Pha Ngan, Thailand, on the night of every full moon. The event draws a crowd of around 30,000 partygoers every month and carries on until the sun rises the next day. The Full Moon Party takes place every month throughout the year and takes fame with the attractions of fire skipping ropes and alcohol “buckets”. What is it about this event that attracts such crowd? Perhaps the magic of the moon and the dancing frenzy that the beach turns into overnight. As the party-faithful return each year with their mates, this party gains the title of the biggest and best beach bashes in Asia. Famous for its sunrise, Haad Rin beach hosts this party and different bars entertain guests with psychedelic trance, R&B, drum and bass, house and reggae music.
