Full-Moon Party on Koh Phangan ends with disgusting scenes

Recommended Posts

Sam Adams and The Mirror have surpassed themselves with this bit of rubbish journalism. Boom boom. It's a <deleted> all night rave, people. It doesn't matter what country it's in, what nationality the attendees are, or what the walking surface is be it sand, grass, mud, concrete or custard. It will be covered in shit afterwards. Fact. And like most other festivals, parties, whatever, this one gets cleaned up right after. There is no story here, just another example of disgraceful British Tabloid reporting. If you're gonna tie someone to the stake and wave pitch-forks, start with the author of the article and follow it up with his employer. <deleted> tabloids...

Shouldn't the organizers have a cleaning team.

I think that's common at most outdoor parties isn't it? Go see what Lowlands looks like after x days of party.

Were recycle bins and trash cans located nearby? My hunch is no and the reason is simple. Unskilled Thai labor will earn money picking up the trash.

Who in the right mind would even consider reading the Mirror?

The headlines look like they would be written by a Thai or Filipino.

The article reads like it has been written by a primary school kid.

The picture is stolen.

The whole story is just crap and badly researched.hu

BTW - in 1985 there was no Full Moon Parties on Koh Phangan,

in fact, there was no parties at all at that time.[/quot

Seems you read this crappy news sheet along with millions of your fellow Brits , so why not ask them why they are retarded.

I reckon that's more of a Myth than a legend.

I lived on Koh Phangan and worked in Samui from 1978 until 1987.

In 1985 Koh Phangans population was just around three/four hundred people.
(You can go and check in the Civic Office). There was no pier, no roads (apart
from a couple of miles down towards Bantai), no cars (just one Jeep) ,
no electricity (apart from a few hours a day in Tongsala), no hospital, no police

station and for sure, no organised Full Moon Parties.

The only way to get down to Hadrin, which was just part of the jungle, was either

along the beach at low tide or a few hours hiking over the mountain. Much easier
was to get there from Samui by longtail boat.
What people believe to be the first organised "Full Moon Party" in 1985, was actually
just an improvised, one off gathering of a few "Hippies" at a deserted beach that was
easily accessible by long tail boat from Koh Samui, without police but a lot of drugs

present. - I was there!!!

That's exactly the well known legend, you are telling - no one mentioned "organized" - and the story also says that it was someone's birthday that full moon night, but nobody remember the name...thumbsup.gif

As you were there, perhaps you will shed more light to the tale..? smile.png

Even before 1985, people went to Hadrin from Samui to see the moon rise out of the water,

play guitar, getting drunk and stoned, sleeping on the beach and being bitten by sandflies guitar.gif

Although I been many times down in Hadrin back then, sometimes from Samui by boat,

sometimes walking from Tongsala down along the beach, I do remember Christmas 1977,

I went to Samui to celebrate my 21st birthday as here on Koh Phangan there was nothing.

No bars, no discos. The only place close to a "nightclub" was the Lamai Inn in Samui. thumbsup.gif

After spending most of the day in Samui eating Mushroom omelettes, mushroom noodles,

mushroom burgers and mushroom shakes, we decided to go over to Hadrin for the night

to have fun without the dreaded police around. whistling.gif

I remember this Thai girl, her nick name was "Frog" who came with us. Her parents owned

the restaurant and souvenir shop just by the pier in Nathon and organised the long tail boat

for us to go over to Hadrin to watch the full moon rise out of the water and celebrate X-mas

(and my birthday) with sex, drugs, music, sand flies and gonorrhoea facepalm.gif

I reckon there must be quite a few guys remembering "The Frog", she was just so desperate

to marry a foreigner, any foreigner and has been quite a few times to Hadrin, so she might

be the right person to ask, when did the first organised and regular party started in Hadrin. wai2.gif

BTW - we did clear up the mess and took the bottles back again, just in case some people

assume, all parties have to end up with a pile of rubbish left over. wink.png

Well thank you for all the emails supporting all those tourist that created that mess, it sad to see the lack of respect for the thai people and their country,

all the concern was what I said and not the mess, well this is the internet and say what you like and know you can't be held accountable.

WELL DONE HOPE YOU ENJOY THAILAND

DO NOT REPLY I BIN ALL THE STUPID ANSWERS

I look very much forwards to the day Thai people start respecting Thai people.

Not just beating, stabbing or shooting each other because of honking their car

horns or having a different opinion.

I look very much forwards to the day Thai people start respecting their country.

Not just throwing their rubbish out of the train, car or house window. Not just

dispose of their old fishing nets, oil or faeces at sea. Not just slash and burn

agriculture, without any concern of people's health.

I would even go further and say, if western people wouldn't have been in Thailand

and moaned about the way trash is handled, Thailand would look even more of

a dump then it is now.

Travel just a bit around Thailand and you will quickly see, places with tourists are

often cleaner, not spotless but cleaner than many places where there are no tourists

at all.

BUT - there is hope as I see many, many young Thai people taking environmental

issues serious, more serious than their parents or grandparents ever did. I see

school children cleaning trash on the beaches, streets and parks (no, not necessarily

tourist places but all over the country). I saw small children educating their parents

and grandparents about the impact of throwing just about anything out of the window.

So, there is hope, maybe not in my lifetime but in my children's future.
