Apr 23, 2005 - The Full Moon Party

The Full Moon Party is considered by some to be the most outrageous party on the planet. And considering the depravity and belligerence the two of us have seen throughout our college careers (i.e. Allison Butler, Chris Knapp), we were not about to rubberstamp this title until we saw it for ourselves. We took part in the festivities in the first half of the night, purchasing buckets of liquor (that's all they sell) and watching people spinning wands of fire in unison to the booming music streaming from the clubs on the beach. But as the...

Apr 22, 2005 - Koh Phangan

Koh Phangan, we soon discovered is no more quiet than Chaweng Beach. In fact it's definitely the complete opposite. It is seen by the rest of the western world as one of the rowdiest party islands on the planet. The heart of the action lies in Haad Rin Noi (Sunrise Beach) which hosts the notorious 'Full Moon Party' each month. Anticipating the crowds we chose to stay on the other side of Haad Rin known as Sunset Beach (for obvious reasons). Its remote location is on a much quieter strip of beach in case sleeping was to be in our future, but...

Feb 9, 2005 - Koh Pha-ngan

Leia Koh Pha-ngan is smaller and a lot less developed than Koh Samui. Most people visiting the Island are backpackers [or 'The great unwashed' as Paul calls them!] This means that the nightlife is fantastic , with every night a mini Full moon Party on Hadrin beach.We have been out most nights. e are staying near to Hadrin and our resort is lovely, as is our pool, although the resorts website was econnomical with the truth when describing the building works as "minor" we have been woken up at 7:30 each morning . Not good with a...

Dec 28, 2004 - Koh Pha-Ngan, Thailand

We have spent the past 8 days on the island of Ko Pha-Ngan on the east coast of Thailand. We found a quiet and beautiful beach to settle on: Hat Yuan, accessible only by boat or a 2 hr hike on a rough trail (see the picture taken from on high... we hiked straight up to get there!). We've been relaxing, hiking, and swimming in the waves. On Christmas Eve we ate a traditional western style dinner at a laid back restaurant on a cliff over-looking the sea. For Christmas dinner we ate at another restaurant which provided a free dinner of Thai...

Sep 24, 2004 - Koh Samui - much nicer than Bangkok!

Left Bangkok on Sunday for the 14 hour train journey to Surat Thani. Then caught a bus and a boat to the island of Koh Samui. The views were spectacular but the photos don't do them justice sadly. We stayed at Chaweng Beach Cabana which is a very nice hotel, the pool and the beach are beautiful. It was worth going over budget. However Chaweng is very touristy, which is a shame. On Tuesday we went on a day trip to Ang Thong National Marine Park, this is where 'The Beach' film was made and you can see why, it's absolutely idyllic. Took about...
