“Now a commercial party for spoilt and obnoxious Brits/Aussies.”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

Interesting experience- I stuck to a few beers and avoided the buckets. Helped a lot of wasted people under 25, one girl cracked her head open, lots of people spoiling the landscape with urine, bottles and condoms etc.

If you are going to this party to find yourself you will become more lost!

If you are under 25 and have no street sense this should seriously be avoided - unless you really want to take stupid risks with strange people, drugs and lashings of unregulated alcohol, you may be lucky to get out clean and well.

If you want to avoid the crush of 20-30,000 people on a beach, try to stick to behind the bar areas where you are elevated and it is easier to stick with mates, and there is room to dance.

Buy your UV paint in the local market...

And: The ANti SPike Bucket encouraged by me- get a carrier bag, tie the handles under the bucket handle, enter straw and voila! A safer way to walk around knowing that there will be no unwanted extras in your drink. Also drink a bottle of water between each one as there are about 10 large shots per bucket, and the red bull has an equivalent to amphetamines in it which can have adverse effects!

Be alert, be savvy, keep eyes open and stick together :-)

The half moon and black moon and jungle parties are currently less commercial and are better company.

“full moon party”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

when you visit one off the island in the gulf off Thailand, koh samui, tao, phangan, then you have to inform you when the full moon party is going to happen on koh phangan. there are many ways to go to the party. by speedboat, catamaran or tour boat. if you want to stay one or more nights and need accommodation, do not wait to long to find one. a week before and after the party is it very busy and maybe you do not find a accommodation at the last minute. just to have a impression haw its going on you have to go. have fun!!!

“Great environment, too bad other ruin it”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

The full moon part is full of younger tourists of Under-cover police trying to sell you drugs. Its a great idea having a large party on the beach at night with flames, bright colours, bucket drinks but it doesn't feel like Thailand. I have travelled around a lot of Thailand and did not like the feel of the Full Moon Party. Everywhere I walked I was worried someone was going to hit me. Never felt that way in Thailand. Also with a Thai wife we were looked down upon by all other tourists and copped a lot of abuse, again never had that problem in Thailand. Its too bad other ruin it for everyone else.

“Lets party”
Reviewed July 2, 2014 via mobile

I like there so much
More drink dance drunk
บัคเก็ตราคาโอเค คนขายทุกร้านเป็นกันเองค่ะ
ห้องน้ำแพงค่ะ แต่จำเป็นต้องเข้า และมีไม่ค่อยเยอะ
ต้องระวังตัวเองและทรัพย์สินนิดนึงเพราะคนเยอะและมั่วมากค่ะ แต่ทุกอย่างโอเคค่ะ
