Riont you will be going April 13th? The Full Moon Party is on the 6th.

I'm staying at a resort as the hostels didn't appeal to me. Lots of places have long minimum stay requirements so I chose B52 Resort. It's pricey, but I know it'll be awesome!

Hey, I and a few friends are going for the Full Moon Party on the 6th of April. Would love to meet up before going.

I've never been to the full moon party. I've read mixed reviews, but figure I'm gonna give it a shot. It sounds pretty crazy.

That's too bad time2fly. The 1/2 moon will probably be good tho.

Vineet where are you staying?

Posted by Vineet on 8/3/2012 at 08:35

I am in India. Born and brought up here. [img]smileys/smile.gif[/img]

And as far as staying at koh Phangan is concerned I haven't really decided. I will see once I reach. Not planning to stay there for 4 - 5 days as most of the Hotels/Resorts/hostels are asking to book the place for at least 4 days.

Yup during the full moon party there are minimum stays. I'm staying there for 4 nights but I'll do day trips to Koh Samui, take a cooking class etc.

I'm from Canada.

#16 escape4ever has been a member since 29/1/2012. Posts: 38

Posted by Vineet on 8/3/2012 at 08:52

Sounds good.

I will figure out once I reach Koh Phangan as to where will I be putting up. I am sure its going to be a pain full task. Lets see how that works out.

If you want you can add me on Facebook.

Vineet Bahri.

I'd so some research and pick a few places that interest you. Not sure if you'll have troubles finding a place to stay due to the full moon party.

#18 escape4ever has been a member since 29/1/2012. Posts: 38

Posted by Vineet on 8/3/2012 at 09:05

I will be really grateful to you if you can help me in finding a place to stay. I have pretty much done all the research that was possible from my end in finding out a decent place to stay, but whatever I found, was asking for a minimum stay of 4 days which is not possible for me. Hence, I was advised to go there and then look for a place to stay.

I have no clue as to how bad will it be in terms of number of people visiting and availability of places to stay.

All the places I found had a minimum 4 night stay to. The only thing you could do is stay on another island and take the ferry after the party. I've heard bad things about this though. I guess they overload the ferries and it's not safe. Maybe just stay for 4 nights and do day trips to other islands during your stay.

#20 escape4ever has been a member since 29/1/2012. Posts: 38

Posted by Vineet on 8/3/2012 at 09:46

Thank you for trying. Thats really kind of you.

I think staying on some other Island and taking the ferry would not be a good Idea. I am aware that a lot of travelers do that, but somehow, it doesnt appeal to me much and also as you mentioned, its not safe too.

I will try and find something when I reach Koh Phangan. Hopefully Ill get a decent place to stay as I am reaching Koh Phangan on the 5th.

Lets hope for the best. Fingers crossed.

I am finishing up a tour with intrepid on April 2 and then may had over for the party. But like you posted the hotels close to the party want a five night stay. I may play it close and just hope the ferry over the day of the party and pull an all nightier, not like anyone going was going to sleep any way.

Posted by escape4ever on 14/3/2012 at 19:58

Oh ya that could work too. You could take the ferry back in the morning. Just have a place booked elsewhere for the next day so you can sleep for a bit.

Where are you from peregrinus7?

Posted by altmtl on 14/3/2012 at 21:20

You don't have to book a 4 night min, stay, All the places write that on their websites, but if you're away from Haad Rin on a nice beach. This does not apply .There are taxis all night long to bring you back to your beach. Also you can just show up and avoid those stupid overpriced places a few days in advance.

Hey Triplehooah,

I arrive there on the 4th so we could meet up for sure. I'm staying at the B52 Resort which is about 20 minutes away, but we could figure something out.

Where are you from? I'm from Alberta.

Decided to stay at Hadd Rin at the Drop In resort. 4th to the 8th does anyone else dive?

#28 peregrinus7 has been a member since 14/3/2012. Posts: 4

Posted by escape4ever on 18/3/2012 at 11:13

We will figure out the specifics closer to the date. I think my resort has wifi so I could message you and we could setup a time to meet.

I don't dive sorry peregrinus7.

Hey guys,
My name is James (25 yrs old).
I thought to go to the full moon on April as well
My main concern is that it might be boring because I travel there alone.. :-O

I thought I'll get there on April 3rd till the 8th..
I would be more than happy to meet new people! :-)

....BTW escape4ever I live in Toronto :-P How about u?

Let me know if anyone is interested in meeting :-)
Please let me know ASAP so I'll do my "thinking" if I should come or not.. I'm not a big fan of partying alone hahaha.. It almost feels like drinking booze alone LOL)
you can contact me by email:
Boongimusic@gmail.com

Cheers! :-)

cool guys, the people im with at the moment will leave before the full moon and then its not going to be that easy to meet others staying in Bugalows on your own, although theres always hostels. Lets get a group of solo travellers together for the party :)
Im in Ko Tao at the moment and its pretty sweet indeed. Add me up on facebook and lets sort something out
leeroy_da_brow@yahoo.co.uk
James and Valerie, il add you now.

Cheers guys

Hey everyone!

Sorry I haven't responded lately. Been getting used to Bangkok and I could really meet up with some people. Having a hard time with this traveling alone. It's not easy for me. Valerinaaa want to meet up? I'm from Edmonton..but grew up in Muskoka. James I guess that answers your question too haha. I'm going to email everyone and get a group of us together so we can have an awesome time at the FMP. I've just sent an email out from escape4ever82@hotmail.com. If it's not in your inbox check your junk mail.

Hey Guys!

Feels good to see so much of excitement and so many people interested in going to the FMP.

@escape4ever: I think its a good idea to mail every one so that every one can meet each other before heading to the party. As I see most of us are reaching a day or two in advance, it'll be better if we meet up before the FMP.

@James: I can understand man. Its really weird to party alone, but its good that through this forum, we can all meet up and then we wouldn't have to party alone. :P

I suggest if we add each other up on Facebook, it would be better to coordinate and stay in touch.

My e-mail id is: vineet_bahri@hotmail.com

Hmm I just did a google map and it says we are 33 mins apart if we drive. Doesn't seem like we are close at all. I'm quite far from where the party is as I don't want to be close to all the noise.
