Koh Samui Nightlife

Half Moon Party


A relatively new addition to the nightlife scene, Surat Thani's half moon parties seem to have been started in response to the demise of Samui's own Rocky Bay beach parties (due to an increase in luxury property development in the Choeng Mon area). Saying that though, the Half Moon people go to great lengths to offer an attractive package to counterbalance the longish trip over to the mainland and provide a viable alternative to the Full Moon Party.

For around 1,800 Baht, revellers can be collected from their hotel, transferred by coach and ferry to mainland Surat Thani, then whisked off to a secluded beach for an all-inclusive night of fun and frolics. A generous seafood barbecue and all you can drink alcohol are thrown in alongside, of course, a night of house and techno courtesy of local and international DJ's. The price also includes the trip back to Samui the next day.

For a little extra there's onsite bungalows available for anyone who can't last the night. For more info visit Travel Solutions, next to the Ark Bar, North Chaweng, or call Toto on 077 210 198.



Samui's latest cultural import began in 2004 and stuck pretty strictly to Teutonic traditional features, ie lots of bratwurst, lederhosen, oompha loompha music and (of course) gallons and gallons of beer. Organised by the local Rotary Club, all profits from Oktoberfest go towards buying much needed equipment for local schools and other good causes.

The first events were organised at Long Beach Resort, behind Tropical Murphy's in Chaweng, it is nowadays held at Nikki Beach Resort Koh Samui.
