This special package gives you the opportunity to experience the ever-famous Full moon party at the island Koh Pha Ngan. The Full Moon Party is an all-night beach party that takes place in Haad Rin on the island of Ko Pha Ngan on the night before or after every full moon. The first Full Moon Party was improvised at a wooden disco not far from the beach in 1985 for giving thanks to about 20-30 travellers. They quickly gained fame through word of mouth, and the event now draws a crowd of about 20,000-30,000 every full moon evening. The party carries on until the sun rises the next day. The bars on the sunrise beach of Haad Rin town stay open and play music such as R&B, drum and bass, house, dance and reggae.

Day 1: Arrival Koh Pha Ngan - The party island
Check in from 12.00 at your accommodation upon arrival at Koh Pha Ngan. When you arrive at the pier you can feel the vibe and the atmosphere on the island as a lot of young party seekers are arriving to enjoy the famous full moon party. Jump in one of the many shared taxi or minivans and tell the driver that you are going to Same Same in Haad Rin. It is a thrilling ride up and down steep hills, so make sure to hold on tight. Upon arrival at Same Same you have to ask for Heidi or Christina. They will then check you in to either Same Same or another guest house nearby. The rooms are basic but fine – but hey a real party animal will stay in the sun and party all night, so no need to splash all your money for honey moon suites at this time. One dime more for buckets on the beach will be a better choice in this occasion. Kick back relax and enjoy that you have arrived.
