If we had to speculate on what the biggest beach party in the world is, we would quickly say the Full Moon Party. Koh Phangan Thailand is known for this celebration that occurs when the moon is at its brightest, and there is are some pretty wild stories that have come out of it.
As the celebration only occurs once per month, I never thought that my travel schedule would line up in order to make it.
As luck would have it, I arrived on a gorgeous Koh Samui beach just before the party was about to take place and was all set to head to Koh Phangan to attend.
But in a stroke of randomness at the last second I changed my mind– I decided to skip the Koh Phangan Full Moon Party.
