Full Moon party
Koh Phangan Full Moon Party
The Full Moon Party is a well known tourist event which takes place on Haad Rin Beach each month during the full moon. The best Full Moon parties happen during the high tourist season, and can sometimes attract up to 20,000 people. While legend has it that the
first Full Moon parties are said to have started some 18 years ago, no one knows the exact date the parties began, especially as it is not an official Thai event. The all night parties last until midday, followed by an “after-party” at the beachfront Backyard Bar until night fall.
