Uh, yes please. We were on Koh Phangan for 6 nights, two of which were given up to the full moon party (party night and recovery night). What is there to say? An Oxford student informed me on the songteow into Haad Rin that the Full Moon Party is a right of passage for English university students and that about covers it (though the actual age range is enormous). More Europeans and travelers than Thais but no one goes to this for the culture. They go for the cheap booze and a raging party. And that is exactly what it was. I think only being in Barcelona when Spain won World Cup 2010 and Amsterdam for New Years could possibly beat the party that is had on full moon nights in peak season on Koh Phangan.
I did notice that guys got a bit, how shall we say, "bold" in their attempts to hit on the ladies so as long as you keep your wits about you, all will be well. I highly recommend staying up all night and partying until your eyes burn. Enjoy!
