Do these go all year round? What months are the best?

As far as I know(I have yet to go to one), the parties are year round, and a party should happen each time the moon is full.

I have not heard of specific months that are better than others, but I would bet that during the Australian summer, there are quite a few more people at each party. The parties are really an invention of backpackers, so it really has no root in Thai culture. But it sounds like it is a hell of a good time. Just be careful, there are often deaths due to drug overdose, or people getting wasted and drowning in the sea.

Just try not to litter while out there. I heard that after a night of partying, the ocean is full of plastic water bottles, and other bits of trash.

There are plenty of websites with info on the parties, and most suggest you book a room ahead of time. So just do a little searching and any other questions should be answered.
