- Enjoy Full Moon Party near Koh Samui

May 08, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
Thousands of revellers are set to descend on the Full Moon Party in Koh Phangan midway through this month for a night of music and dancing.

The island, located just a short distance from Koh Samui, has been hosting the event since the mid-1980s. When it first took place, a small group of 20 or 30 travellers attended the celebrations.

Since then, the party has experienced a surge in popularity and is now regularly attended by as many as 10,000 people.

The next Full Moon Party is scheduled to take place on May 18th.

Proceedings kick off at dusk, when the moon appears over the white sandy beach at Haad Rin. Thousands of lamps are lit near the waterfront and DJs queue up for their turn on the decks.

The event caters for a diverse range of musical tastes, offering everything from trance and techno to drum'n'bass and reggae.

Koh Phangan is around a 30-minute ferry journey from Koh Samui. Boats depart at 17:00 local time every day and return to Koh Samui at 07:30.

Party-goers looking for Koh Samui hotels can head to and choose from a generous selection of accommodation on the island, including the Chaweng Regent Beach Resort.
