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!

Very Clean beach with many activities to do, jetski rental available and taxi boats to other area's on the Island. The beach get cleaned everyday early morning and have specified boxes for trash. During the fullmoon party the music at night might be an issue for some people in some parts of the area. But during the normal days it’s quite and calm and very nice for relaxing. Many great shops to visit and food places. You can also join the beach football competitions. Many things to do for everyone.

mass tourism related only to the night parties alcohol-based and techno music...all the local life goes around parties hours so if you want to have breakfast at 10am everything is closed except for phamacies and markets like 7 eleven

Never again. They only are after picking your pocket, This is not real Thailand
Copy alcohol, rude staff, no good DJ´s
We went to a fullmoon party, but never will you see us in Had Rinn agin.
The rest off this beautiful island is great, we love the jungle party, but Had Rinn gotta change a lot if they not want to close down very soon

Lot of activity on the beach... Loud music, people playing beach volley ball, sun bathing etc. but clean and white beaches is what you are looking for then head to Hat Rin..
