Are you ready to get your dancing shoes on, your buckets filled and to party all night long? Then say no more.. The Full Moon Party in Koh Phangan is where the PARTY is at! Spend the evening getting messy with 10,000+ strangers, playing with fire and partaking in festivities that will most likely give you beer fear for the foreseeable.

So let’s do this in TRU style, get your brightest outfit on and and let’s get M E R R Y for what will only be a night to remember!
2. SLICE AND DICE IN A THAI COOKING CLASS
For all you foodies out there, this one’s for you! There’s no better way to engage with the local communities and learn about Thailand’s most traditional dishes than to take part in a cooking class. Spend the day visiting local markets, picking out your very own ingredients and spices to put together to create insanely mouth-watering flavours and dishes that will make you want to scream for more. Not only will you learn incredible new skills but you will also help the community thrive by going local. It’s a win-win if you ask me!

3. VISIT AN ETHICAL ELEPHANT SANCTUARY
Is it everyone’s dream to visit an elephant sanctuary or is it just me? You’ve got trunk and you’ve eaten delicious food. It's now time to spend the day at an elephant sanctuary learning, feeding and looking after these beautiful but most certainly cheeky creatures whilst they roam free in their natural habitat. A heartwarming experience you do not want to miss out on! If you head to Thailand make sure the elephant sanctuary you visit is ethical, caring and not for tourism. NO RIDING ELEPHANTS OK? Good, we knew you wouldn’t.
4. KICK ASS IN A MUAY THAI CLASS
Are you ready to take the ring? Muay Thai.. It’s a skill, it’s intense, it’s sweaty and we’re here for it!

Just like after one too many drinks, practising this skill will leave you capable of moving your body in ways you could never imagine.. So get your best trainers on, it's time to work up a major sweat and kick away the hangover, we dare you!
