The Full Moon Party in Haad Rin on Koh Phangan, Thailand, is as festive as any rave can get! This crazy party is held every month with the upcoming one being on March 16th. These are dubbed as the largest and most notorious parties on the planet and rank pretty high on the scale of insanity.
Round trip from New York City ⇄ Bangkok, Thailand (March 13th-March 19th) starting at only $991 (flight details: https://www.travelpapa.com/y/1i)
There are, on average, about 30,000 party goers each month who hit the beach covered in paint and with the intent of dancing with people from all over the world. What really sets the party apart would be its end time: sunrise! The intense party scene may seem about intimidating at first, but is considered one of the top “must-do’s” for inhabitants of Southeast Asia.
You can’t underestimate the popularity of these Full Moon Party’s. You must arrive a couple of days in advance in order to ensure that you are provided with accommodations. (Insider Tip: it will be cheaper to stay on Koh Samui and then take a ferry to the party… plus, you get to arrive on the scene in style!).
Another plus side to the party is its location. There’s a reason that they decided to film the second “Hangover” movie in Thailand… it’s a beautiful country. Koh Phangan is a large and exotic island with tons of private beaches and activities, such as boat tours and hikes through the jungles.
There’s a breathtaking health retreat nearby and might even come in handy after a little bit of *ahem* drinking at the party.
