Full Moon Party in Koh Samui – Party Every Month!

Full Moon Party, Anantara Bophut Koh Samui

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!

Fullmoon Party on Koh Phangan – Thailand’s most famous party!

Rasananda Phangan Island Resort & Spa

Koh Phangan is an island in southeastern Thailand. It was once a sleepy little island and it continues to be for the most part. The exception is during the full moon when the aptly named, ‘Full Moon Party’ gets underway. The party takes place on Hat Rin Beach on the southern tip of Koh Phangan. Resorts and boutiques catering to the discerning traveller are located on the more tranquil western and northern shores. Wild party aside, the island has much to offer in the form of natural beauty. The surrounding forests and pristine bays give it the feeling of a private island. It is also home to the luxurious Anantara Rasananda Koh Phangan Villa Resort and Spa. Koh Phangan will soon be only an hour’s flight from Bangkok, with the opening of an airport, which is in the pipeline.

The Full Moon Party at Hat Rin started out with small groups of guitar playing, pot smokers gathering together in the moonlight. Today, it has become an alcohol soaked, rite of passage for backpackers around the world. The mile long party venue sees thirty thousand people crowded on one beach with makeshift stalls put up by vendors selling cheap alcohol. Enormous speakers blare loud music till the sun comes up. Drugs, violent crime and sexual assault are common and increasing as this party grows more popular. Drownings and emergency trips to mainland hospitals have also become annual occurrences.

The party goers drift away by morning and the island returns to its calm and quiet way of being until the next full moon. However, the Full Moon Party’s days maybe numbered because the Tourism Authority of Thailand is working to clean up the image of Koh Phangan and market it as an upscale holiday destination.
