also what are peoples plans after the party? how long they staying on the island for? if this the best island to visit in Thailand or can people recommend seeing others?
any info would be fab
Myself and my boyfriend will be heading to the full moon party in November and have been told by friends to arrive a couple of days before. Not only do most guesthouses requeire that you stay a couple of nightd in advance, and the guesthouses sell up pretty quickly, but the atmosphere on the island coming up to a full moon party is supposed to be almost as good as the party itself and a lot of guesthouses and hotels have pre-full moon parites!
We have 3 months to travel around SE Asia, and are basically being open about everything, expect the date we'll be back in thailand for the full moon - we've been told not to miss it!
I was at a party back in 2002 and it was nuts. Getting there early is essential to getting a room. I dont remember names of where I stayed so sorry for that. I would get a good lock and lock anything essential in the hotel lock box or safe. There are many break-ins during this time so leave nothing in bags that you dont want to get stolen. I don't mean to scare you I just want you to be safe. Lock doors everytime you leave the room no matter how short your are away.. Better safe than sorry.. It is cool watching the towns population double everyday leading up to the party.. Every night gets crazier and crazier.. Have fun and just keep and extra set of eyes out.. Have fun it is an incredible time!!!!
I'm considering going, I've been to the beach parties and stuff, but never to an actual Full Moon Party yet so i do want to go, still debating, i just hate planning the trip, it's so difficult with the transportation, accomdating etc etc, it gets all filled so damn fast hehe
