FULL MOON PARTY
Clearly, one of Thailand’s main attractions is its diversity. Temples, history and culture nestle safely alongside mountains, valleys, beaches and nightlife. However, there is yet another dimension to the kingdom.
Thailand is home to the world’s biggest beach parties ever – events that in there own right bring thousands of people to Thailand’s shores every year. The first Full Moon Party was improvised at a wooden disco not far from the beach in 1985, for giving thanks to about 20-30 travelers.
The parties gained fame through word of mouth, and the event now draws a crowd of about 20,000-30,000 every full moon evening. The party carries on until the sun rises the next day.
