We pry ourselves away from the beautiful Koh Samui and take the 30 minute ferry ride to Koh Phangan. We had avoided Koh Phangan on previous occasions, the whole too many tourists thing. But we arrive a few days before the Full Moon Party, and check in to Tommy's, right on Haad Rin Beach. We meet Brett and Takayo here, who like us, after 5 months of snow just need to get away and soak up some sun-rays!
Our first night we end up at a local girls birthday party, eating delicious food, drinking beer and even knocking out a bit of karaoke. (Lucky I had one Thai song under my belt ...... dek me ban haa haa, haa fen mai dai loi ter - boi bai gru purr purr purr tao bai ruk, krai krai)
The night of the party starts with a slice of pizza, to get something in our tummy's!
Then we move onto the also-nourishing buckets of vodka red bull ....
It was an awesome night (well, from what we remember), about 8,000 people there for off-season.
We're allready looking forward to our next trip back to Koh Phangan and another Full Moon Party!
