If you're ready to relax and have a good time, Trip Guru suggests a visit to Koh Phangan.
In Haad Rin, there's the iconic Aussie-themed Outback Bar. It's more laid-back than other bars on the beachfront. It features a wide range of spirits and, for sports fans, you can usually watch cricket, rugby and other shows on their TV screens. The bar also serves English breakfast, Irish stew and other delicious food that goes well with beer. If you're interested in some peace and quiet, on the beach in Chaloklum Bay, Cafe Del Mar offers dancing under the stars with their open-air club in the evenings. And of course, the Full Moon Party at Haad Rin Nok Beach is one of the most celebrated cultural events in Koh Phangan, with live fire dancers and music until sunrise.
To get to Koh Phangan, you can take a ferry boat from Koh Samui to get there and it will only take 20 to 30 minutes. When in Koh Phangan, there are cars, taxis, motorcycles or even pickup trucks that you can hire to gain access to the different beaches in Koh Phangan. If visiting for the first time, be aware that the road may be a bit bumpy due to pothole terrain, especially during the rainy season. The best time to visit would be during the dry season, which runs from December to June with minimal rain and endless blue skies. If you’d like to visit during their off-season, Koh Phangan experiences rainfall during July to November.
The nightlife areas are open from 10:00pm or earlier, and close around 2:00am or later. Be sure to take good care of your belongings and be wary for any thieves that may be hiding among the other party-goers. Be sure to keep your valuables locked behind a safety deposit box and don’t forget to lock your rooms when going out or before going to bed.
What our experts tell about this experience.
This Island is known for the full moon party...and that's why we came here. The girls, the drinks, the rave! My bros and I lost our insanity! We went wild had lots of fun and woke up with the worst and biggest hangovers we've had in our lives! We booked accommodation that was cheap as possible since we knew we'd party from dusk till dawn, maybe it'll be noon and then die out anywhere! 500-900BHT a night during the Full Moon Festival, so watch out and book before hand! It was EPIC.
Get wild at the FULL MOON PARTY in Koh Phangan! My sisters and I came here and had a blast! The moon was really beautiful it really was but what we were looking at more was the Bon Bon fires and the dances everyone was doing! You take out your souls and get so wasted here that you're a whole other person! The music, the tourists and the alcohol was such a good mix! Had so much fun and got so wild .. ;)
