Full Moon Party Koh Phangan

Koh Samui Accommodation 70% Discount!

The Full Moon Party is an all-night beach party that takes place in Haad Rin on the island of Ko Pha Ngan, Thailand on the night of every full moon. The first Full Moon Party was improvised at a wooden disco not far from the beach in 1985 for giving thanks to about 20-30 travelers.

The Full Moon Party gained fame quickly through word of mouth, and the event now draws a crowd about 20,000-30,000 every full moon evening.

The party carries on until the sun rises the next day. All the bars on the sunset beach of Haad Rin town stay open and play music such as R&B, drum and bass, house and reggae. The event has become a part of the itinerary of many travelers to Asia. Entry to the event is completely free.

In recent years, local entrepreneurs have attempted to expand upon the event with spinoffs like the Half Moon Party and Black Moon Party. The Full Moon Party featured mainly in the independent film Last Stop for Paul and partially in Thai film Hormones.
