Because I actually enjoy half moon so much, I decided to go and try full moon also. This time, I would like to make it a bit easier than the half moon trip and bring our own pickup truck from Phuket and drive to the Ko Pha Ngan. We book the same bungalow “Paradice in ‘Tong Nai Parn Noi’ Beach, (I also do not know the telephone number but we call Stasy whom we met on the last trip to book it for us) We set off from Phuket early in the morning headed to Surathani port to Pha Ngan. It is very embarrass to say that we actually arrive the port late because we got really lost. (As you can see even a group of Thai could actually get lost in their own country)
We arrived at the port to find a really long que of cars, trucks and pickup and we were told that our pickup would just the last pickup on the next ferry.
Arrived Ko Pha Ngan at last and head straight to our accommodation. We have a bit of rest on the beach watching the local team having football match (soccer for American or Australian who reading this). This is Ko Pha Ngan inter beach match. It was an important match for the local actually because the team representing the local beach must win to ensure their place in semifinal. We were cheering the match for a while and have shower to get ready to go to
We park our car near the police station and headed to the infamous chicken sandwich stall.
One thinks I notice however, there were lots and lots of
There are several party organizers in Rin beach for the full moon party. We went to all of them twice that night actually. Difference organizers also mean difference type of music was playing and difference themes. After wandering around my friends actually settle on one of the place where I want to continue walking to see. Maybe it is not my scene or just too many organizers; I think I prefer the half moon party. So, I we went home a little early knowing that there is also after full moon party around dawn.
We got up again at 5 am to travel back to Rin beach again the following morning and check out the after full moon party which we have to walk to the top of a small hill just near to the Rin Beach. The after party is quite ok even with hot and humid environment could not stop the party goer whom was so 'high' (with enjoyment) We bought ourselves some drinks and enjoy the morning partying before we went and check out other places on the island.
I think we were lucky to have met Stasy (Space), she live there for a long while already to study yoga. She show us around and go to all the nicest place. I wish I could have stayed longer but need and must, we say goodbye with tears on our eyes (still hangs over and high). and drive back to phuket.
