Where is the Full Moon Party

  • The Full Moon Party takes places on the Haad Rin Beach on Ko Pha Ngan island
  • This is where THE party happens. Anywhere else on the island, or any other island, just just a copy cat party
  • Getting there is super easy from any part of the island. There will be tons of shared taxis (called Songthaews) that zoom up and down the island on the night of the party because it's the single biggest event on the island so locals are happy to make money driving tourists around (the party draws 30,000 tourists on average, the island's population is only around 10,000)
  • Taking these Songthaews was easy enough. We stayed on the opposite side of the island and when we headed to the party at 11pm we just walked along a main street, and literally within 5 minutes a songthaew honked at us and we hopped on (200 baht per person)
  • Leaving the party is even easier. When we left the party at 3am there were rows and rows of these songthaews parked by the Haad Rin Beach and we literally just showed the driver where our Airbnb was on Google Maps and were ushered into one of them. Although we had to wait a bit for the taxi to get full with around 8-12 total passengers
