Where It Takes Place
Of course, the first thing you need to know about the Full Moon Party is where it happens. While variations of the party have popped up across the country, the original Full Moon Party takes place in the Hat Rin area on the island of Ko Pha-ngan. The first-ever party took place in 1983, and it has since expanded into something extraordinary.
When It Takes Place
As you can probably tell by the name, the Full Moon Party takes place when there is a full moon. This means that it changes every single month. Sometimes there will be two or even three parties every single month, while there are other instances where it only occurs on one particular day of the month.
What Happens There
A Full Moon Party gives travelers the chance to let their hair down, listen to good music, and dance the night away. These all-night parties normally involve fire dancers and a large amount of drinking and will continue as the sun begins to rise. Many party-goers also like to cover their body in neon paint and even let off fireworks. Where else can you do this on the beach, under a full moon?
If you’re traveling to Thailand, it makes sense that you give the Full Moon Party a go.
