What started out as a small improvised party in a wooden disco not far from the beach has grown into huge free festival every 28 days!
Every year thousands of travellers from all over the world come together to party all night long and celebrate at this legendary event. Illuminated by fire jugglers, thousands of lamps and of course moon light; get ready for an awesome time on one of Thailand’s most beautiful beaches. Experience the infamous buckets, beachside BBQ eats, and a selection of music genres pumping from the beach bars at this epic party that runs all night long. It’s enough to leave you hot and sweaty, but luckily it’s right on the beach so you can cool off in Thailand’s glistening ocean!

Getting to the Full Moon Party
Includes transport from Bangkok to Koh Tao, Koh Phangan and back to Bangkok or on to Phuket.
Stray's Bucket Pass offers the easiest way to get to the Full Moon Party: Jump on in Bangkok and travel by overnight bus to the city of Chumphon, where you’ll board a high-speed ferry to whisk you away to the beautiful Thai Islands.
You can add the Bucket Pass to any of our Stray hop on, hop off passes or just book the Bucket on its own. The Bucket will get you down to where it’s all happening, because as they sometimes say: "No Bucket, No Boom Boom!"
