The full moon party has gotten it's hype, joining in on the bandwagon, it become one of the things I had to experience. But honestly, it's just like any other party experience, only thing is, a lot more drunks, a beach, glow paint...EVERYWHERE and a public toilet for all (the sea) or pay 10bht for the bathroom. The music blares from different bars, clubs clubs along the beach. Then there's a 100bht entrance fee.

I'd say, it's just a thing to cross off your list.

I have been to the full moon party a couple of times. When i first went it was awesome, you could haggle for your bucket prices (to around 200baht), you felt safe and it was genuinely an amazing "must do" experience. since then they have bought in a fixed price (450baht), I caught a guy trying to rob me, (I literally pulled his hand with my money in it out of my pocket) and he just smiled and went on his way to probably rob someone else.

I wasn't too surprised by the Full Moon Party, it was basically everything I had read about beforehand. I think you can have a good time whether you're there to get completely off your face, or just have a drink and get some dancing in on the beach. Was glad I went to experience it, thankfully didn't see anything really bad. Just a huge amount of people there to party and LOTS of buckets.

Drink plenty of water in between your buckets. Stay close to your friends and enjoy. Smile at locals don't pick a fight you won't win

An unforgettable experience! Pace yourself with the alcohol as it free flows all night. Be smart, there are a lot of drunk people and we did see some fights break out. Do not bring ANY valuables with you, the locals make a living off stealing from you (pickpockets). This is mostly just a crazy party with all kinds of bars and different type of music for everyones taste.

They also have marijuana and shroom shakes (happy shakes) available for purchase. Just need to be discreet about smoking and the vendors ask you to go in the back. They also have laughing gas available for purchase.

Ladies, be prepared to pay 20 THB to use the restrooms and they are DISGUSTING, unless you decide to use the beach like most people do...I would never every dip my feet into Had Rin beach after seeing what people were doing in there on the night of full moon.

Price is 100 TBH to enter and its free if you are already on the beach when the party starts.

Have fun and be safe!
