Thailand Event Guide: The original Koh Phangan Full Moon Party is probably one of those Thailand party magnets that attract thousands of backpackers and curious travellers to Thailand’s white beach island Koh Phang Ngan in Southern Thailand. It is the perfect mix of the deep-blue Andaman Sea, white beaches, and great party music. Add onto this lots of travellers and locals who are dancing and relaxing on the beach and in the bars and your perfect festival picture is complete.
The party has been copied several times around the world, but organisers have not been able to give attendees what Thailand offers best; surrounding, atmosphere and people. The original Full Moon Party in South Thailand is one of the deepest rooted music festivals.
The Party perfectly mixed the deep-blue Andaman Sea, white beaches, a great cool breeze topped up with great party music.
Picture travellers and locals dancing the night away, jumping on the bass, drinking then stretching out on the beach.
Numerous times the Full Moon Party has been copied around the world, but to duplicate the perfect mix of surrounding, atmosphere and diverse cultures that are so typical for the Full Moon Party is simply missing. You have to visit Thailand and the Full Moon Party to underwrite this feeling.
How to get to Koh Phangan
