Thailand is one of the most popular travel destinations in the world in the past two decades. This is also the place where you can find more than 1000 beautiful, exotic islands. One of these islands is Koh Phangan. This amazing island is located in the south-east part of Thailand in the Surat Thani province. This is a popular tourist hotspot known for its beaches, pleasant climate, pleasant people and one of the most exciting festivals in the world – the Halfmoon Festival.
This is a very popular outdoor dance music event that takes place between full moon and new moon which means every 15-16 days. Of course, most people know about the Full Moon Party, but the Halfmoon Festival is the true gem of Koh Phangan.
This Festival is a unique event. There are only a small number of places in the world where you can release your inner energy and enjoy the music in the amazing nature, amongst palm trees and sandy beaches. Koh Phangan is one of these places. Those who are interested to be part of this festival should find accommodation in the main town on this island – Had Rin. This town as well as all other places on this island is a true example of the hospitality of Thai people and their hedonistic view of life.
