A giant festival-like gathering featuring a lot of drinking, dancing, music, party people, and fun is now the legendary Koh Phangan Full Moon Party. Each venue and bar has its sound system, so you can hear new music playing loudly on the sand every few steps. It is an epic party scene to behold.
The beach is lined with individuals selling beer and alcohol buckets, food stalls with Thai food and western food, performances with fire artists, and tiny stands selling neon face paint.
There are a few speed boat services from Koh Samui to Koh Phangan and Back during the Full Moon party night. The transfer is a boat combo ticket and includes a pickup from your hotel by air-conditioned minivan, transfer to the pier, speedboat to Koh Phangan and back, and a transfer back to your hotel on Koh Samui. However, the boat ticket for a private charter like that is costly, and most people take Lomprayah High-Speed Ferries Co., Ltd or Raja Ferry. It will be packed if you go anywhere from two days before to the day of the party.
One of the three original "Moon Parties" open-air gatherings made Koh Phangan a world-famous party island. Guests come from all over the World to experience this unique event. Half Moon Festival welcomes you for a once-in-a-lifetime experience deep into the tropical forest… Uncage your spirit!
Half Moon Festival takes place every two weeks: 1 week before and one week after the Full Moon party. The festival, organized in the tropical island forest, attracts several thousand of participants.
