Hi, just wondering if anyone has more info on full moon parties do they happen ll over Thailand? I'm going to be in Phuket in July when there is a fuul moon, do they have a party there, if so what can I expect?

Well I can't be certain that I have the best knowledge.... but it is my understanding that the "Full Moon Party" takes place at Samui Island.... and is not a generic party that is found all over thailand. I have been in the country extensively, and to my knowledge, FMP is an attraction only at Samui.

I would recommend that you call the Phuket hotel where you will be staying (if you know) and see if they have any information about a local FMP.

I look forward to the other responses. Maybe I will learn something too!!

The fullmoon party is held every fullmoon on the sister island of Koh Samui, called Koh phangan. For more info, check out the website
Have fun

Thanks for all the help, looks like there will be no full moon party. I'm sure we'll find plenty of other things to keep us busy.

Hey!!!I was at the July Full Moon party and had an amazing time....there are some other places around Thailand that have gatherings for the Full Moon but Koh Pha Ngan is where all the action is!!!theres a site, i used this before I went to get dates etc for the parties!!!If your in Thailand then I would reccomend shooting across for the FMP in koh pha ngan, its really cool...if youre there at times when theres no full moon they also have big half moon and black moon parties, not as hectic as the full moon but full all the same!!
If not check out some info on phuket..theres bound to be somewhere there that has some sort of party!

Next full moon party will be on April 13, the same day as Songkran (Thai new year); so expect mayhem and lots of fun!

More info on Koh Phangan and the Full Moon Party can be found at the Full Moon Party Forum on
