A disk of gold shines high in the sky. The beats are catchy and the night is young. When the moon pays its monthly visit, tourists gather eagerly at the island of Ko Pha Ngan, Thailand to celebrate the Full Moon Party. Today, the party is popular to the extent that the island of Ko Pha Ngan has become synonymous with the party. It is a party that is not to be missed especially if you have planned to stay at Anantara Bophut Koh Samui Resort. This Koh Samui beach resort is somewhat close to the island of Ko Pha Ngan and is worth heading to if you plan to visit during the full moon period. However, what’s most exciting about the party is that if you miss it once, you just have to wait a month to dance, sing and sway to the beats.
It is said that the inception of the party was directly related to a delightful discovery. A group of foreigners heaved and sighed at the moon that seemed to tantalize them at Ko Pha Ngan. The moon had never seemed so beautiful and this set the mood for a monthly party in which the moon became a silent visitor.
10,000 to 30,000 visitors head over to Ko Pha Ngan every month to be a part of the party. Fire Eaters, jugglers and enigmatic beats are what you can expect if you plan to attend the party and it would be a pity if you miss out on the opportunity while in Thailand.
The music is varied as you would hear techno, drums, reggae and trance. While dancing and swaying your head to the beats you could also grab a bite or drink from the humble beach traders. After partying you could relax on the beach while the delicate wind inquiringly blows through every strand of your hair.
Don’t miss this party at any cost!
