The Full Moon Party is one of the must-attend events if you are on holiday in Thailand. You can find this monthly party on Koh Phangan island in the southern part of Thailand. Plan your holiday to the Full Moon Party beforehand and have once a lifetime experience in Thailand.

Where’s the Full Moon Party in Thailand?

The Full Moon Party happens once a month on an island named Koh Phangan located in the Gulf of Thailand. This island is easily accessible from another nearby island named Koh Samui. Koh Phangan is big island, so you shouldn’t just book accommodation or transport blindly. If coming from Koh Samui, book a ferry transfer to Haad Rin and find accommodation near this same area. The Full Moon Party itself is held from walking distance from the Haad Rin pier. It’s easy to just follow other travelers or search for “Sunrise Beach”, where the Full Moon Party is held.

Why is Full Moon Party in Koh Phangan?

The Full Moon Party was first held on Koh Phangan in 1985 by a small group of travelers. Now after over thirty years of Full Moon Parties every month, thousands of people attend every Full Moon Party. There are also Half Moon Parties and other events and activities on Koh Phangan.

How to get to the Full Moon Party?

Because the Full Moon Party happens on Koh Phangan island, the easiest and only way to go there is by ferry transfer. Koh Phangan doesn’t have their own airport so you have to fly to Koh Samui island and take ferry from there to Haad Rin near the Full Moon Party beach if you plan on flying to the closest airport. If you are staying on mainland Thailand, take a bus or train to Surat Thani, then continue by sea to Haad Rin.

Just remember to check ferry schedules before hand so you won’t miss the last ferry. Some people party until the first ferry, but we recommend you book accommodation if you don’t want to leave in the evening. Staying for a longer time in Koh Phangan is also possibility. In this case you could find accommodation from farther away from the actual Full Moon Party and visit several places around the island.
