Thailand Full Moon Party Dates

The Full Moon Party in Haad Rin on Koh Phangan, Thailand, is one of the largest rave gatherings in Southeast Asia, if not the world!

Thailand Full Moon Party dates vary so that they do not coincide with Buddhist holidays that often fall on full moons.

Although not officially Full Moon Parties, the Christmas and New Year's Eve parties are the largest, sometimes drawing a crowd of 30,000 or more travelers.

The schedule for parties is subject to change and does so regularly; confirm the dates while in Bangkok before booking passage to Surat Thani and on to Koh Phangan.

Plan to arrive several days in advance for any hope of getting accommodation during the busy season! Even outside of the regular season (November to April), you'll encounter crowds of college students on break in the summer months.
