Thailand has long been associated with a great and thriving party scene. In fact, when you think full moon party, Thailand is the first place that you think of. This is probably one of the oldest and largest best full moon parties out there. People come from all corners of the globe to rave the night away on the beach. Parties often reach over 30 000 attendees and are known to get wild and loud. The party is right on the huge crescent shaped beach which seems to extend for miles. The full moon illuminates the beach and is reflected in the water. Party goers can venture into the water if they get too hot or want to take a break from dancing all night. There are drink stations set up all along the beach where buckets can be purchased. There are also bars and restaurants open all night to serve your every whim. Take a stroll down the beach and find the perfect dance tunes. Because the beach is so big, there are multiple areas set up, playing different types of music and offering everything from fire dancing, body painting and fireworks. If you don’t like the music at one area, simply move on down the beach to find your perfect jam.
