Koh Phangan is the home of the world famous Full Moon Party. Every full moon there is a huge all night party on Haad Rin beach with all kinds of DJ's, drinks and debauchery. Read about it here: http://fullmoonparty-thailand.com/
Needless to say we wanted to attend one. But our timing was off as we got to the island just after one of the parties. So....we're coming back. We're going to continue on through Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam and then come back for the full moon party on April 20. There is also a 3 day beach soccer tournament leading up to the party, so needless to say, Darren is quite excited. After that we'll head over to Phuket to start our fasting and detox...Fun, fun.
We rented a scooter on Koh Phangan and spent a couple of hours touring the island and checking out the many beaches. It's a beautiful island and part of backpacker folklore. It's easy to see why! We're off to Koh Tao....another beautiful island. What a rough life!
