They could start now on the Ark Bar on Koh Samui if it's still going.

Ark Bar is cool...😎
–and still going strong, plenty af visitors and named guest DJs...🖕

Don't forget that the Thai tourist minister has suggested to let the night life be open later than now – till 4 am – to get more tourists to come...:whistling:

No one is saying venues should not stay open longer. What is at issue is louts that think they have a right to disturb all the people that don't want to party. Have all the parties one likes inside, but open air party bars should be shut down after midnight at the latest. The exception is Had Rin where everyone knows about the FMPs and stay away if they don't like it. The louts want to make every beach a party beach and there is unfortunately no shortage of antisocial greedy entrepreneurial Thais willing to assist.

The story from the old time is that organized Full Moon Parties started at Koh Samui, at Chaweng Beach...

 

Quote

First, we were doing Full Moon Parties on Chaweng Beach, Koh Samui, for about six months before that — maybe a year. I had a restaurant-bar on the beach and was the only farang [foreigner] with a business there at the time...

Source: Time "Silver Sand and the Sound of Waves: It’s 1988 and Thailand’s First Full Moon Party".

 

So if you don't like it, stay away from both Haad Rin and Chaweng, the beach parties – and other parties – were there, at both places, from early days...:whistling: 

There are plenty of other great locations, on both Phangan and Samui, with no parties...🙂

I was driven away from Tong Nai Pan Yai by a noisy bar ( lost 3 days paid in advance too ). I went to see the racket at 2 am and found the noisy beach bar with 1 customer and a dog. Complaint to the resort owner elicited no help.

By all means arrest the antisocial hooligans for anything, so long as it gets them gone.

Fair enough but Tong Nai Pan Yai is the quiet side of the island, not known for its parties. Oxa is right in the middle of 'party land'.

100 customers?   Surely some sort of compromise could have been reached; egg cartons on the wall, better speaker placement or displacement, or cheap IR headsets.  Most "sound systems" in bars have too few speakers pounding out far too much volume.  A more distributive system allows for more sound and lower volumes.  Speakers are cheap.  

 

So, if you do not like your neighbors, accuse them of human trafficking.  

Pity you cannot explain it to these people. It would be a win for everyone.
