Early Bird Audible: BKK to Full Moon Party

BKK to Full Moon Party is part of the Reunion Tour Trip Report.

Fed up with the losers back home “LBH” who come to Bangkok for sex tourism (see TPOL’s Take: Sex Tourism in Thailand), we needed a change of scenery. I was told to go to Pattaya. From what I recalled, Pattaya is another Phuket full of LBH’s and one of the worst places in the world. Wanting to relive the days of my youth and experience unadulterated fun (see Party Time Worldwide), I decided to return to Koh Phangan for the Full Moon Party.

TPOL’s Truth: A little older, I decided to go only for the days leading up to the party. Age notwithstanding, the pre-party is better than the party itself.

The earliest available flight was at 8AM. Given that it was already 5AM, there was no time to second guess my decision. I hit book, told my friend to pack his bags, and hoped there would be an Uber available (see Ejected! Taxi Bangkok).

For $250 per person we flew Bangkok Airways, a quick one-hour flight, to spend 4 days partying with travelers from all over the world.

There are good ideas and then there are great ideas. The decision to leave Bangkok after a night out in Bangkok (see One Night in Bangkok: A Marathon Party Guide) was a great one. It made up for my Vietnam blunder (see Vietnam E-Visa Not Processed: Another TPOL Duck Up?).
TPOL’s TIP: $250 round trip is the typical price even if booking in advance. Flying Blue is available for redemption on Bangkok Airways, but it is not a good use of points.
