Last Full Moon Party for 2018 attracts 30,000

By The Thaiger

Authorities claim over 30,000 tourists flocked to Hat Rin on Koh Phangan for the Saturday night (well, Sunday morning really), monthly full moon party, the final party for 2018. The party kicked off at 1am on Sunday morning and wound up at 7am.

 

Most of the local hotels were full with highly inflated prices for the monthly gathering whilst many others arrived on speedboats from Koh Samui.

Maybe 25,000 of the party goers came across from Samui? In their <deleted> FLEET of speedboats???

Hmm, average 40 per boat, that's 600+ speed boats to go, and another 600+ to bring back, about 100 an hour...🤔

 

It more likely and realistic that some 3,000 party-folks commute between the islands, that's a boat departure every 5th minute...😉

 

The sea between Samui and Phangan didn't seen that busy the night of 22nd/23rd, but it was so calm that we could hear the party over at Samui's northern beach, so saved the speed boat trip...😀👍

"Due to the cost of cleaning up after such carnage, the local community implemented a 100 baht entry fee to access the beach on the night of Koh Phangan Full Moon Party"

So the local community collected an EXTRA 3,000,000.00 baht for the years final party ! 

Bet that becomes a regular feature next year ?

What a load of bllocks!

 

KP is empty, the bike hire shops are stocked and yesterday's street market in Thongsala was dismal.

The BS just gets more outlandish every year.

Spot on... was plenty of empty spaces on the beach.

Because they have never been; that is way beneath them.

 

You are taking about TAT 'hi-so' people here, they are used to more sophisticated functions, lavish trips and exhibitions that are attended worldwide, to promote the kingdom; it would look bad if their efforts are worth squat...

Wow, anyway I'm happy I went in the nineties ( and haven't been there since 😉). 

Glad I went there before any of the islands had roads. Really nice.

Madness. 

 

Totally agree ! I was there and only idiots could believe that there was more than 5000 people at full moon.

I checked 15 resorts for my website and they all where almost empty.

Don't think all guests pay a fee, as it's charged when entering Haad Rin, like at the harbor when commuting from neighboring Samui island, but lots are living/staying inside the "fee zone".
