Ko Phangan

Written on: Friday February 8th, 2008

After the culture of Northern Thailand it was time for me to go south to the Islands to get drunk in the sun again.

After changing my plans slightly I found myself in Ko Phangan, home of the infamous "Full Moon Party" which is basically ten thousand people on a beach getting wasted on booze and drugs all night.

The Full Moon wasn't for another two weeks, but no worries, the Thais have learnt about commercialism quickly over the last few years and many other "Moon" parties have sprung up. The night of my arrival was the "Black Moon Party" i.e. no moon. Not as big as the Full Moon but a lot of fun nonetheless.

The following three nights I spent repeating the antics of my first night, so I can't really tell you much about the rest of the island as I was in bed for most of the daytime.
