“The 50 year old view …...”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

Go early, wear old clothes and protect your feet. Don't buy cheap buckets…..but enjoy! You have to go so you can say you have been. Now I am older I don't party as much, but it is nice to see young people having a great time in an exotic location. Wander round the beach, checkout the various sound systems. Delve into the side streets off the beach where you will find all sorts of places to sit and eat and drink. And then go home when you want! Be careful of the road there and back if you are not staying in Hadrin - take a taxi unless you are a competent bike rider. It's steep and twisty, but it's not the death trap people love to call it - and neither is the party. All the stories you hear are true, but 99.9% of all people have a good time and get home safe. And if you are an old party hand like me, then get some sleep and checkout the after parties the next day……much safer and much more enjoyable. But everybody should do FMP at least once!

“not as read and heard”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

Its good .. but not as good as we heard or read about it ... its simple party on beach even a small beach.

if you want to enjoy it fully stay in koh phangan instead of coming to party from samui from boat plan one night stay in phangan island

music is ok ... i may add I had better party in bali indonesia then this.

“Crazy and Fun”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

Had read sooo many reviews about the full moon party that it quite honestly was something i was very curious to know of.We(my friends and i)were 8 girls who were there for the first time and had an absolutely fantastic time. Although i must say that the day before the full moon and after the full moon are the best times.The day of the full moon has too many people.

We reached all days at 11:30 which i think is the best time to reach there.We bought our buckets at an irish pub very close to the place.We were charged a 150bhat for a bucket of whiskey and water.We danced till the music shut on all three days. We had decided before we got to the party that we would enjoy the music and dance and thats exactly what we did.We did see the usual drunken,cuts all over their bodies,creepy drunken people you see in any party,but then again those are things you would see in any part of the world in a party.

Love their music.They mostly play EDM and sometimes a but of commerical and RNB.I think everyone who comes to Thailand and wants to see their party culture should make a trip here. I also think they should have good toilets around(i saw a lotttt of people taking a dump/piss)on the beach.Make sure you stick to your group,talk to fellow travelers,stay away from the creeps,sip and enjoy your drink and just DANCE.

“Only offered drugs once”
Reviewed March 22, 2014

The drinks are more expensive than you expect for Thailand, but it's fun and there is a great atmosphere. They should have free toilets to stop so many people peeing in the sea. It ruins paddling/swimming.
