Visit Half Moon Party and Thong Nai Pan?


I am looking to visit KPG with my boyfriend at the beg of April for 5 nights. Unfortunately we cant make our dates work to visit FMP so was thinking of going for the half moon festival. Is it worth it?

If we do what area should we stay in? After that I would like to stay in Thong Nai Pan for 3 nights. How would we get there from the area the half moon festival is in?

Thanks alot for your help in advance!

Hi Sarah,

We stayed in TNP a few years ago (at Havana Beach Resort) and went to both the full moon and half moon parties. We all agreed that the half moon was a lot more fun! It was slightly less chaotic than the full moon and the vibe was a lot friendlier.

And it was super easy to get to both parties. We had a guy take us directly to the party in a truck, and came back in songthaews.

Hope that helps!

The party is in Baan Tai so if you want to be close to it stay there. Otherwise it is easy enough to get to from Thong Nai Pan so you could just stay there while visiting the island.

Hey there, I am going to the half moon party in July and came across this when doing a little research. I would really like to stay somewhere within walking distance to the half moon party but if pos. somewhere that's good value but as nice as possible. Any suggestions? Thanks a million. :)

Thong Nai Pan is a good 40 minutes away by car.

I was in Koh Phangan in last Janury at the FMP period. Since I couldn't find any good accommodation around Haad Rin I have booked a hotel in Thong Nai Pan Noi. I thought it would have been a problem to get to FMP area from Thong Nai Pan Noi and get back to hotel at the middle of the night. But, the hotel provided transport to FMP area at 6, 8 and 10 pm and to hotel back at 12, 2 and 4 am. It was around 400, 500 THB. I know that many hotels provide transport to FMP area for a fee. So, probably you won't have any problem to get to party area and back to hotel. Bye the way, Thong Nai Pan Noi is a paradise. Have a nice trip.
