Koh Phangan - Full Moon Party Tips May 05, 2012
I just got back from the Full Moon Party that took place in June, 2011. It was one mad party to experience. It is a small beach with over 5000/10000 people dancing to loud music whole night long. I stayed in the beach till 7 in the morning and witnessed one of the most spectacular sunrise. I will be positing pics in my profile sooner. If you can, please do stay till morning for the Sunrise.
There are 5 different shacks on the beach playing music, selling drinks in buckets and tons of fire drills. People generally end up drinking a lot as they are sold in buckets, so just keep your belongings in your rooms.
Everyone here wants to know about Rooms availability, booking timings and details in this forum. We didn't had any bookings done in advance and landed up getting a small Air Con room in a hostel for around 10 USD which was decent enough. The hostel was bang on the Hadd Rin Nai (Sun rise beach) and just 2 mins walk from the party.
1. If you plan to stay longer in Phangan, you should get the rooms booked in advance.
2. but if you are there just for the full moon party, you can go there and book rooms, you will get tons of options ranging between 10 to 25 USD per night.
Where to Stay:
If you want to stay in the main party area, stay in Hadd Rin Nai or Nak beach where as if you wish to stay little away from music and madness, stay in Tongsala Beach or Ban Tai beach. They have some really beautiful and cheap properties.
Most of the people who travel to Koh Phangan on full moon, lands up in Koh Tao for Snorkling the next morning. The boat for the Snorkeling leaves early morning at around 8, so just make sure you reach the Pier (Tongsala Pier by 7:30). If you wish to take a day trip, book it in advance as most of the party hoppers lands in Koh Tao next day.
# Lomprayah has the best boats and service whereas second to it is Seatran Discovery Co.,Ltd..
