    Has anyone ever been to one of these?

    Two of my mates are out there at the moment doing Tsunami releif work, and I am thinking about going out for a couple of weeks in August to meet up with them. We have talked about doing a full moon party. Anyone ever been? What are these like?

    the full moon party is on the island of koh phan gan which is a short boat ride from koh samui.....it's approx once a month (obviously on the full moon!)

    it is a huge beach party with mostly tourists/ backpackers drinking and dancing on the beach through to the morning.

    there's various bars along the beach and you get to meet quite a few interesting people.

    i've been to about 8 of them when i was living out in thailand for a year.

    great fun and defenately worth the experience if you can get over there.

    in my experience it depends on the people that you meet, but generally you should have a great time.

    1000's of people partying on a beach til the sun comes up (and then on to another all day party)

    if you have the time, hang out on koh phang gan for about 3 days before and 2 days after a full moon party for the best experience..
