Hi guys - hope you can help me. I am going to be going to the April Full Moon Party in Thailand. I was just wondering if I should start looking and book accomodation now - so we get a good place - or will it be alright a bit closer to the date?

I was there last year and turned up five days before the Full Moon party and found somewhere to stay no bother. Two or three days beforehand though places were starting to get fully booked out, so basically I would advise to get there about five days before the FMP and you shouldn't have any trouble finding somewhere.

helloooo!we had heard the same and we arrived 5 days before hand but accomodation hunting for us was still pretty limited even so far before...our boat was packed and when we arrived the place we had in mind to stay at had suddenly whacked the prices right up!We couldnt afford it, as it was extortionate so had a good trail around and found many places were offering only auful rooms and budget prices!So I would say either arrive well in advance or book somewhere before you go!its probs worth booking something online then it means you dont have to stay there longer than you want just so you can get a room!I stayed at The Seabreeze bungalows which were reasonabley priced and had amazing views, maybe check them out!!!!

Hey Twinkle - did you book online? What website did you use? Because I thinkkI'd rather be safe than sorry.

Irish9 - sure thing we would love to meet up.

Hi Guys,
I will also be at the Full Moon Party in April. Have booked accommodation at the Blue Lotus Resort. At 300 bt per night is is probably far from a resort but it looked ok on the web. It is on a beach about 6-7km North West of Hat Rin according to my lonely planet map (couldn't find anything 1/2 decent for less than AU$45 per night in Hat Rin booking this late), just a boat ride away. If you punch blue lotus into google it should come up with some accommodation web sites.

It really depends also what kind of place you wish to stay in. You can always find somewhere to stay even if it's someone's hammock!!
Just get there a few days early and you should be fine.

Oh yeah have a great time.
