Every month of the year, on the day the full moon graces our skies, the island of Koh Phangan evolves from a classic, idyllic tropical island to a raging, wild beach party known as the Full Moon Party.
The contrast between hedonism and spirituality is unlike anything you’ll ever see in your life. There’s a reason the Full Moon Party is one of the best parties in the world.
Join 30,000+ people every month in heavenly Hat Rin in Koh Phangan to enjoy anywhere from one night to one week of dancing, drinking and unadulterated indulgence and decadence that likely won’t be remembered.
This really depends on where you’ll be traveling from.
From Bangkok to Koh Phangan it takes 10-15 hours by bus and ferry.
From Suratthani to Koh Phangan it takes 3.5-5 hours by bus and ferry.
From Koh Samui to Koh Phangan it takes half an hour to an hour by ferry.

Bus rides will usually make at least one stop along the way and some will make additional stops according to travelers’ requests.
A ferry will not make stops other than to drop off and pick up passengers.
Once you book a ticket, you will either be assigned a seat number by the supplier or you’ll choose one for yourself on the day of the trip, as most suppliers work on a “first come, first served” policy.
Depending on the supplier. In most cases, you’ll be able to take your bike and your pet with you, but you should check on Bookaway’s website or by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Not really. At Bookaway we do not offer tour guides, but if you choose the private transfer option, it will come with an English speaking driver who would be happy to answer questions and tell you about the scenery.
No, you do not need to buy tickets in advance. Once you get to the party though, there is a 100 Baht entrance fee (about $3.00 / £2.50 / €2.90)
This varies from one supplier to another, but usually when taking a bus you’ll be allowed to bring one big luggage (maximum 20kg) and one hand luggage.
Trains are usually more flexible with their luggage policy and have no special limitations.
With shared or private transfers, passengers are allowed to bring 1 suitcase and 1 carry on luggage per passenger.
