Nightlife & Thai Girls on Koh Phangan
Koh Phangan Nightlife Overview
Laura is from America but had studied in Edinburgh in our first year at uni, and was currently teaching in Ayutthayah, so it was really great to see her again. Hacienda had a pool that led on to the beach, a fishing boat a little way out in the sea, a fantastic waiter called Jackie Chan, and a resident 6 year old Thai girl who took great delight in sneaking up on unsuspecting backpackers with creepy crawlies she had found on the beach. The first Full Moon Party took place at a wooden disco hut not far from the crescent shaped Haad Rin beach in , when a handful of travellers gathered to celebrate the magnificence of the moon over the island. Today, 10, to 30, people come to the island from all over the globe, and the steep, winding streets are lined with shops selling souvenir t shirts, and we got the modern experience of the famous night. On our first night in Pha Ngan, we got a taste of Thai etiquette when we went for dinner and they brought us each dish as and when it was ready, whether it was a starter or a main.
I am not a festival girl. Shoutout to my friend Brian for taking care of me, though! And lesson learned — shots of whiskey make me vomit. The event takes place every month on the night of the full moon the island of Koh Phagnan. On May 11, I had my once-in-a-lifetime experience on Haad Rin beach along with my boyfriend, James, and 30 of our Remote Year friends and lived to tell the story. Full disclosure: I really, really wanted to wear Disco Tits to the party, but my companions were not a huge fan of the idea so I went with a white bikini, instead, figuring I could still maximize the body paint situation.
Haad Rin is the most famous and developed beach on Koh Phangan, this is where the famous full moon party takes place every month. There are many nice beach bars and clubs, and if you walk around in the streets behind the beach, you can find some more bars and massage salons. Important: There are no such girly bars or beer bars in that area, but a few massage salons with girls who will give you a hand job for a small tip. Which I assume you are. The good news is that there are many nice beach bars on Haad Rin with cheap drink prices all night long see below. It will be more fun if you meet a girl in one of the beer bars see above and then take her to a bar on the beach to have a relaxed drink together. They have fire shows going on each night from about 8pm. Mellow Mountain Bar is a nice open air disco on top of a hill overlooking the beach, but it only gets busy during the full moon party. And if you walk around in the town of Haad Rin, you will find several more bars — they all look really nice, but again the problem is that there are no Thai girls.
