Koh Phangan the dream island with palm trees, white sand beaches, coral reefs, good food, Thai massage,  and the famous parties: Full Moon Party every month, and the Half-Moon Parties in between.

The famous Full Moon Party has gained as being one of the biggest and best beach bashes in the world. Each year the scene here grows with the ever-increasing number of party faithful that return, bringing their mates and spreading the vibe.

Haad Rin is home to the Full Moon Party and also houses about 3-5000 rather mad people; it is the island's nightlife capital and has Koh Phangan's biggest concentration of beach clubs that collectively put on the ultimate travellers get together. There are over 12 major sound systems running the length of Had Rin beach, catering for 8000 to 12,000 punters in low season, 15,000 to 20,000 in high season and up to 30,000 at New Year. Within this transient crowd of party animals some highly talented DJ's pass through, banging out their wares to the raging lunar explorers that have landed on planet party.

The Half Moon Party is organized in the middle of the dsungel. Several pool-parties and other programmes wait those ones who miss the Fuul and Half Moon period.
