Full moon vs Half moon

Posted by jbmpinkham on 15/4/2013 at 21:11

My boyfriend and I will be in Thailand for just under 2 weeks near the end of May, early June. As we do not have much time, we are trying to make the most of our trip. We will be arriving in Bangkok early morning on March 25th, the day of the full moon party on Koh Phagan. We are wondering if it is worthwhile for us to travel down to the island that day to catch the full moon party, after having traveled 29 hours. We are go getters, so if the party is truly better than the the half moon on May 31st (which would fit into our travel plans much easier) we are willing to make it happen. Although, if the half moon is an equally awesome time, then we would be happy to do that instead. Regardless, we are getting to at least one of the parties. Can anyone that has been to both the full and half moon parties help to compare the two? Is the music different, the atmosphere, the location ect..

Thanks!

Hey, I'm a go-getter, but partying afer massive sleep deprivation sounds like it's own special form of torture.

Most people here don't recommend the full / half moon parties. I've never been so you'll have to wait and see if some who have been can comment.
