Koh Phangan is one of the smallest islands in Thailand, however, don’t let that fool you.
This place is home to The Full Moon Party – one of the biggest parties in Thailand and famous around the world…
The Full Moon Party is held at Hat Rin beach once every month during the full moon.
If you want to get the full effect of the party, visit the island during high season. At times, over 30,000 people have been recorded to attend the party.
To get to Koh Phangan, you will have to take a ferry from Koh Samui as there is no space for an airfield on the island.
At the time of the full moon party, finding accommodation can be a challenge. Thus, try not to insist on staying on the island.
Instead, you can simplt go there for the party and then catch a ferry out of the island the next morning. Boat transportation takes place throughout the night and morning.
In the period between the full moons, the party scene is quite dry on the island. However, there are still plenty of things going on at different bars during the weekend throughout the entire year.
Phuket is amongst the larger islands of Thailand. It is situated on the western edge of the country in the Andaman Sea.
For years, the island has been a hotspot for party animals. It is the perfect place for those who love partying until late in the night and nursing hangovers under palms trees along the beach.
Some of the best beaches to go partying on the island are Kata and Karon.
5. Koh Phi Phi
This small but spectacular island is host to some of the wildest parties in Thailand.
The island is made of three main areas:
- Loh Dalum to the north has a relaxed vibe to it although you can still find some partying going on there.
- Tonsai East and Tonsai Village are hosts to some of the best bars and clubs on the island which are generally preferred by late night party lovers.
Koh Phi Phi is famous for its buckets. You can get a bucket of ice and half a bottle of sugar cane rum together with mixers and straws. It costs next to nothing on the island.
