Once a month thousands of revelers will congregate on Haad Rin beach in Koh Phangan to celebrate the full moon. Decorated in neon face paint and armed with “buckets of joy” visitors from all across the world line the sandy beach of Haad Rin, dancing to there favourite beats from dusk until dawn.
International and Thai DJ’s will have the music in full flow through out the night and morning with techno, house, Drum and Bass and pop music pumping out the strip of bars that line the beach.
For the more experienced party animals who manage to go through the night be sure to take in the magnificent sunrise across Haad Rin beach as the party continues into the following day. The party rarely stops in Koh Phangan and as the crowds on Haad Rin die down another party usually gets in full flow somewhere else on the island.
On the day of Full Moon there are additional services that will take you from Big Buddha pier to Haad Rin beach or pier. Services leave on the hour every hour from 2pm til 11pm and return you every hour between 11pm and 8am. Cost is at a premium for this service and a return ticket costs around 1200 baht.
