Bangkok city, famous for being most alive at the night time attracts many tourists from all over the world.
During the festival season, Thai hotels get quite busy, so it is better to secure your booking as early as possible. If you would rather stay at a service apartment in Bangkok, there are plenty of popular options like Anantara Baan Rajprasong. Coming up is the most awaited festival of all seasons, the Moon Festival, so this is a very good time to plan your visit to Bangkok.
Even though this festival has originated in China, it has moved to a different phase in Bangkok. Story goes that in 1985 a small group of travellers who were inspired by the beauty of the moon in Koh Phangan had arranged an all night long beach party which later developed to the major bash known as the ‘Full Moon Party’.
Every month a crowd of about 10,000 – 30,000 comes to enjoy the most happening beach festival with dance, music, food, and drinks. The glamorous fireworks make most of the party atmosphere, while the fire eaters thrill the crowd with their skillful performances.
This has gained so much fame among tourists that even variants like ‘Half Moon’ and ‘Quarter Moon’ parties were on the rise during the early days. But the government had banned all celebrations apart from the Full Moon Festival considering the noise pollution and severe damage it caused to the routine lives of Islanders.
