Pha-Ngan Full Moon party still popular, district chief affirms

More than 10,000 foreign tourists joined the popular Full Moon Party on Koh Pha-Ngan late Sunday night and the early hours of Monday under the watchful eye of security officials, the Pha-Ngan district chief said.
 

Pha-Ngan district chief Krirkkrai Songthani dispatched 120 troops, police and Interior Ministry officials to the designated area on the island’s Haad Rin Beach to maintain security during the party.

 

Krirkkrai said the beach was crowed with partygoers and he had deployed the officials to prevent crime and drug abuse.

 

Haad Rin has been famed for its Full Moon Party celebrations for decades but the parties had become notorious for drug and alcohol abuse. Tourists reportedly liked to eat “magic mushrooms”, a kind of fungus with hallucinatory effects, and regularly drank all night before passing out on the beach. Clinics and hospitals were often full of exhausted and hung-over tourists the following day.

 

Tourists danced to the blaring music as security officers patrolled the beach.

 

Krirkkrai said the large turnout showed that foreign tourists had regained confidence and were returning to both Koh Pha-Ngan and Koh Tao. He said officials have measures in place to ensure the safety of visitors and hoped they would return to visit the two islands.

They used to talk about 30,000, and even 40,000 guests, and it's still high season, so either 10,000 is a lot less, or the previous numbers was too high – at my last visit 2nd March, there seemed slightly less visitors than before  – or maybe only 10,000 are "foreign tourists"..??

 

I've been there 8 times, and always feeling safe and happy; however last time it was a bit boring, looked like the beach was cleaned from some of the usual activities, probably by the authorities.

I do not believe that more than 10000 people attended any full moon.

 

Do you know if the idiots in rat uniform still catch innocent foreigners smoking weed or who have taken X ?

Are they still sent to SURATHANI court or most of the time they can clear ? the problem at KPG ?

They didn't kill your Mom or Dad...

Cops are crooks and they are the ones who should be jailed, not people having fun on the beach with pills sold by the latter crooks !!

So people caught on KPG go to Koh samui court ?

I must have watched an old TV report on youtube.

But people on Koh Tao do not need to go anywhere as they just are killed or pay 50000 to the cops ?

?
