How to save money at the Full Moon Party?

There are many ways you can save money while taking part in the Full Moon Party. The only cost you can’t change is the admission of 100 THB you have to pay to get inside the event. Nothing else is necessary. First, decide to stay in a hostel near the party. It’s not the cheapest accommodation but you will save money when you can walk to the beaches and to the party area. Don’t eat on the Full Moon Party beach but rather find a restaurant in town. Also, try not to drink too much (or at all) because it’s the biggest expense most travelers spend money on.

When you come to Koh Phangan, you can travel by very cheap ferries. However, we don’t recommend this even for those who want to save money. The cheapest ferries are usually fully booked and may not  have life jackets for everyone. Better ways to save extra money is by not buying too much on Koh Phangan. Try to ask around if anyone has body paints they don’t need anymore. This way you don’t have to buy your own paints. However, we do recommend supporting the local economy by eating local and purchasing souvenirs from local shops.
