HO HO HO TruTravellers!

It’s coming up to that magical time of year where Santa Claus busts out the neon paint, fills a bucket with whiskey and hits Haad Rin beach delivering festive joy and party spirit to all…… no it’s not Christmas, it’s December on Koh Phangan, and this year we have a special surprise in stall for you.

For those unfamiliar with the Full Moon Party, it is well known as the biggest beach party in the world, each month between 10,000 and 40,000 revelers descend on Haad Rin beach for a night of whiskey buckets, neon lights and dancing, with Full Moon Parties falling around Xmas and New Year being the busiest and craziest ones of the year. With this many people turning up every December it’s no surprise that accommodation fills up quickly and prices go up. For this reason we have always taken a break from running trips over xmas, until now. This year we have teamed up with our good friends Heidi and Christina who own and run one of the coolest hostels in Haad Rin and pre booked a limited number of beds right in the heart of the action for a one off, super fun, Tru-Xmas and New Year Full Moon Party Koh Phangan bonanza! (even includes a free shit shirt!)

With the lunar calendar on our side, Decembers’ Full Moon Party actually falls exactly on Christmas day meaning that this years shenanigans on Koh Phangan will most likely be even more epic and popular than usual. Like always, we’re here to help and we want to make your Christmas and New Years plans that little bit easier (and much more fun) by putting together an awesome Koh Phangan accommodation, party & activity package over the busy Christmas and New Years Full Moon period. It’s basically double version of our awesome Full Moon Experience extension but done during the busiest and craziest time of year on the island. Check out the video here for our full moon tour (Note: some of the destinations in this video such as Khao Sok are not in the xmas and new year package as they are on the 8 day Thai Experience trip which usually goes before the full moon bit.. Check that out here)

So, if you’re planning a trip to the beautiful island of Koh Phangan this New Year just check out what we have in store for you in all it’s awesomeness below! We have split the 10 nights up into two 5 night packages so you can join us on the island for Christmas & Full Moon (24th – 29th Dec – now full) or for New Year (29th Dec – 3rd Jan), or you can stay all the way from the 24th December till the 3rd Jan for the super Xmas, New Year Koh Phangan festive orgy of awesomeness.
