Koh Phangan is the location of one of the best and wildest beach parties in the world. Every month, whenever the full moon hits, the Koh Phangan full moon party takes place. It began in 1985 as a thanks to a handful of travelers who saw the beautiful full moon over Koh Phangan. Since then, the party has immensely increased in popularity. The size of the party has gone from 20 to 30 people to 20,000 to 30,000 every month. It is a great attraction for tourists and is something that no party lover will want to miss out on in their lifetime.
The party itself begins when it gets dark on the full moon, and lasts until the sun rises in the morning. All night there will be music and dancing, with enough of a variety to keep everyone happy. There are various other forms of entertainment at the party as well, such as fireworks, jugglers and fire eaters, to keep the crowd excited. This all continues for the entire night, so there is plenty of time to take a break here and there and recover before going back into the frenzy.
There are plenty of hotels for people to stay in, and entire vacation packages can be purchased that include the Full Moon Party to ensure that the whole week is filled with fun. For those who want to be a little closer to the beach where the party happens, there are even some bungalows in the area for convenience. These are a great alternative to those who don’t want to have to travel far to a hotel after a long night of dancing and fun.
Beach parties are fun, but the Koh Phangan full moon party redifines the meaning of fun at a party. With well over 10,000 people attending and having fun at every one, there are countless people to meet and dance with until the sun rises in the morning. Hardly anywhere else in the world can a party as big and exciting as this one be found. If it can, the full moon party is a sure competitor.
