After staying in Phuket for a while (working of course). I had a chance to go and look at the half moon party. We went down from Phuket by van which only cost us around 200 baht each. The van takes us to the ferry port. It is actually the same port that go to Samui Island but there is a separate ferry to go to Ko Pha Ngan Island.

 

The boat trip last a couple of hours, my advice is to get into the ferry early and get the open air seat at the back. However, if you can not get the limited open air seat there are several seat inside the ferry with questionable air-condition.

 

We rent a small Suzuki to travel to our accommodation and visit the place where they would have the half moon.

When we come in they are setting up the place and they looking at us a little weid (most probably what is these travelor come this early) But we just would like to make sure that we know the correct place to come. Although, it later turn out that we do not need to really find out.

 

We come to the half moon and enjoy ourselves very much. There are bar on top of small hill, (with roof if it is raining) We were lucky because on the day that we went it was good weather and not too hot. The party suppose to last all night. We went with our new friend (Stasy (UK) and Nicole (New York) we met in Tong Nai Parn Noi Beach. 

 

The Suzuki was full when we come but only some of us come back (That mean some really stay all night) I could not. The DJ was great and the ambience was what we were expecting. There are only one party and one organizer unlike the full moon with many organizers. I must confess I did not want to go back but my friend Alisa want to go back early so we come back around 1 am. All in all, everyone enjoy with only one party and together. (Much more enjoyable than full moon)
