Koh Phangan Full Moon Party
Every month during full moon a crowd of about 10,000 people come to Hat Rin beach in Koh Phangan to dance from dusk till dawn. It is considered the most famous beach party in the world. On the beach you will find several stages with different DJ’s.

The dress code for the party is neon. Buy some fluorescent paint and create your own full moon party look. Taxies drive all night to and from the party, so you do not necessarily need to book a room in Hat Rin. It is good to book your hotel on time if you want to visit the Fullmoon party.

Beware of Drugs. On the beach dealers will try and sell to you, but beware that drugs are not allowed in Thailand and when caught you may end up paying a hefty fine or even do jail time.
