Why Full Moon Party?  (8 Answers)

I am trying to understand the excitement behind FMP.
I have been to one last year in December and it did not impress me at all.
Music they play its just TOOO old and all i see is kids dancing on benches and jumping over ropes
Its not bad but I guess this could be done in many other places .
I am not sure if i miss to visit some unseen place on beach where all the fun , but its definitely not on the beach i expected to see.
I have seen much better and safe places to party.
Any idea why there is so much fuss about FMP ?

Stay here or Koh Samui  (3 Answers)

My 20 year old son wants to go to the half moon party on 11 October. I would be happy to stay on Koh Phangan for 2 or 3 days but accommodation seems very basic and unsuitable for a 60 year old. Any advise please. I did think about staying on Koh Samui but am not sure about getting back to a hotel at 3 or 5 am or some other silly time. Paul

Transportation  (8 Answers)

Hi guys,

Can anyone suggest an easy but inexpensive way to travel from BKK to Koh Phangan?

I'm planning to leave BKK on the 30th, and I know everything gets booked fast since it's near NYE. Is flying to Surat Thani the better option? Will it be easy for me to get to the pier, and also do I need to book the ferry ticket in advance?

Cheers!

Snorkeling / Diving Booking Recommendations & Zip-line / Elephant Trekking worth it?  (3 Answers)

Hi All,

I am going to be in Ko Phangan for the September full moon party and staying in Ban Tai Beach.

I've never been diving before so I was looking up a bunch of dive places and was thinking about going with Reefers for diving but it is kind of pricey for my budget (quoted 3500 BHT). I was wondering if anybody would recommend a less expensive (while still reputable & safe) dive group. I kind of like reefers right now b/c their sales staff has been nice/responsive via e-mail.

Also, if I end up not going diving bc it is too expensive... I would at least like to go snorkeling. I would greatly appreciate any recommendations of people/tour companies that I could book a nice snorkeling adventure with. Pricing/contact information would be much appreciated.

I was also thinking about skipping diving b/c then maybe I could go on the zip-line or elephant trekking. I saw an adventure offered through safari travel but the company's reviews are either really good or really terrible... I would greatly appreciate pricing/contact info on where I might go to book zip-lining or elephant trekking or if I can just sign-up with the vendors themselves.

Thank you so much!

Just trying to get an idea of where would be a good place to stay on Ko Phangan during the half moon party not necessiarly near the party... and if we were to stay somewhere like Bottle Beach is it easy to get back there and is transportation available in the early hours of the morning?

Also, where exactly is the half moon party? Is it not at Haad Rin?

new year accommodation  (1 Answer)

We plan to arrive on the island on the 27th Dec. We do not wish to be at the centre of the full moon party so will stay anywhere on the island for new year. Going by the net, there is no accommodation left on the island, however we were told by a friend that as we are not fussy as to what beach we stay and are arriving a few days before New Year the at we should get somewhere to stay upon arrival. Does any1 know if this should be the case. She also told us we will have many reps approaching us when we get off the boat trying to sell ur accommodation. I am just worried we may not find anywhere at this very busy time of year!! any advice would be great :)

Phangan vs Samui  (5 Answers)

Hello, I'm planning a honeymoon in july in Thailand, I really liked the Bophut area, thought the fisherman's village looked like a great spot, and the beaches look nice. I heard that the beaches are somewhat polluted and phangan is a better alternative. I don't want to be completely secluded though. Anyway, I have two questions:
1) Besides Full Moon what is the night scene in Phangan
2) In general how do these palces match up

You guys have been so helpful and I really appreciate the feedback. Thanks!!!
