Moon Party & Beyond
first Full Moon Party either went off in 1987 or 1988, no-one
is really sure; and it was someone's birthday. It was such a good
party that the same crew met up again at paradise Bungalows and
partied under the next Full Moon. From there on the party grew
to be a mecca for travellers in the 90s festival that it is today,
attracting thousands of visitors from every walk of life.
are now over 10 major sound systems on the beach playing everything
from psy-trance to drum and bass with each one representing a
different genre. Crowd sizes vary from around 8,000 in low season
getting up to 30,000 in the high season; and inline with the party's
growing popularity, Haad Rin has been expanding to accommodate
its guests. There are now over 5,000 rooms and hundreds of cool
bars, boutiques, restaurants and of course the great nightlife.
