Fun & Games
Head to Full Moon Party for a world-famous all-night rave in a popular coastal location. Something of an institution in the backpacker scene, the party takes place before or after every full moon in a spot of beach decked out with all the things revelers require. Growing out of its hippy, counterculture roots, the party nowadays attracts a mainstream international audience, with a full-blown industry forming around what was once unorganized hedonism. Expect glow sticks, DJs, packed bars, and dancing. To visit Full Moon Party on your trip to Ko Pha Ngan, use our Ko Pha Ngan trip itinerary builder.

Where to stay in Ko Pha Ngan

Stick to the southern coast for the greatest range of accommodations on Ko Phangan. Reasonably priced beach resorts and backpacker hotels offering basic rooms line the shore and the area surrounding the main ferry dock. The southeastern peninsula also hosts decent options, and generally offers a bit more luxury than the establishments located near the docks. Explore the remoter areas to enjoy resort-style accommodations, offering seclusion and privacy at relatively steep prices.
