Going to the Full Moon Party could be described as a pilgrimage... if pilgrimages were full of music, alcohol and amazing beaches. What we mean is that the Full Moon Party isn't just a party on a nice beach. It is one of those events that have built so much lore and tradition around them that they have become a sort of ritual for travellers.
It all started on Haad Rin beach on a full moon night. It was 1983 and a group of 20-30 people seeing the beauty of the full moon reflecting on the water decided to have an unforgettable party. The place and the party under the full moon light soon became legend and more and more people started coming.
Today, depending on the day, between 5 and 30 thousand people join the party on every full moon night and things like fluorescent paint and fire ropes have become almost a tradition.
As the party grew, so did the choice of hotels, parties and experiences, making it harder for travellers to know what to choose to have the best possible experience, and avoid ruining their trip. We have created this page to try to provide you with as much information as possible and to offer you an easy way out of the chaos: our full moon pack that already comes with carefully selected hotels, parties and experiences.
