You will be able to enjoy reggae, classic rock, dance, techno, hardcore and more so there is sure to be something that will take your fancy.

However the fun doesn’t stop here as Koh Phangan offers other highlights at different dates of the month. Noteworthy is the Black Moon Party which occurs approximately two weeks after each Full Moon Party.

A succession of DJs takes their turn on the deck, providing exciting trance and techno music.
Also not to be missed is the enjoyable Half Moon Party which unlike the others is staged in the local jungle. The vibe may be slightly different but the experience is just as distinctive as the other parties.
Other noteworthy events at Koh Phangan Island include the colourful celebrations for the Chinese New Year. Another interesting occasion is the distinctive Songkran Festival which is also worth experiencing. With so much to do and experience, a visit to Koh Phangan will always be memorable.
