Black Moon Party on Koh Phangan is a monthly celebration that brings Mac’s Bay of Baan Tai Beach (on the island’s southern coast) to life with DJs spinning underground trance and progressive dance beats. The event was established by Black Moon Culture in 1999 and has since become one of the largest parties on the island. There is also a focus on art, which you might not find in full moon parties that take place on Haad Rin Beach.

The phrase ‘banana pancakes trail’ is the stuff of legend in Southeast Asia’s backpacker route. Along the banks of the Mekong, across many a dorm room and questionable dive bar, backpackers come to learn the story of the first tourists to travel ‘on the ground’, making a conscious effort to immerse themselves in local life. Decades later, their influence is having transformed the region: tourism here is now the fastest growing on Earth, receiving a quarter of total travelers worldwide.
When you travel through Southeast Asia these days, it is hard to imagine that tourism was almost non-existent just a half century ago. Here is the story of how hippies, guidebooks and banana pancakes helped to create one of the most famous backpacker routes in the world.
There is a Full Moon Party in Phuket? Maybe you didn’t even know about it, but yes, there is indeed a Phuket Full Moon Party on Paradise Beach near Patong Beach, and it has been around for a while.
The Full Moon Festival at Paradise Beach is Phuket’s biggest beach party. Modelled after the successful Full Moon Party on Koh Phangan, Phuket’s version of the all-night beach party is a more upscale affair and is well organized. Each month on the night of the full moon, famous DJs, local expats, Thais and tourists head to Paradise Beach Club to party and dance all night long.
The Half Moon Party, officially Half Moon Festival, is known for symbolizing the power of freedom, free expression, love, and unity. Among the well-known international open-air events on Koh Phangan, the festival is one of the most acknowledged and famous of all. This techno, house and urban party is held twice a month in the mystical rainforest of the island.
The festival takes place every two weeks. As the name would suggest, the party is on the night of the half moon. In other words, one week before and one week after the official Full Moon Party.
Many people will wonder if it is worth to join Half Moon Party instead of Full Moon Party. Are there any differences? Which one is better?
