Short Description

The TruTravels Full Moon Experience is an awesome 13 day adventure around Thailand and a great way to see the many sides of Thailand whilst experiencing the varied nightlife, finishing off with a grand finale at the famous Full Moon Party in Koh Phangan. We greet you at the airport and introduce you to like-minded travellers from the outset as well as taking care of all of your accommodation, activities and transport.


You will spend the first 8 days travelling down with us to Koh Phangan from Bangkok (see our TruTravels 8 Day Thai Experience tour for more details). The last 5 days are spent in Baan Thai, exploring the island, taking in some incredible sunset views, and gearing up with your group for one of the biggest parties in the world!

Small groups are usually defined as between 10 and 24 travelers, often less. If you're the kind of person who enjoys more intimate experiences and personal service this is a good choice. All else being equal you will pay a premium for this style vs a larger group tour.

Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival

When you land, we pick you up at the airport, and take you directly to your hotel. You have a free day to get to know your group and get settled. In the evening we go out on the infamous Khao San Road for drinks.

Day 2: Temples & river cruise

Travelling in tuk-tuks then on a private longtail boat along the Chao Phraya River, you’ll explore Bangkok and experience some of Thailand’s heritage. We visit two prestigious temples – Wat Arun and Wat Pho, to see the very impressive giant, gold reclining Buddha statue.

The rest of the day is free for exploring, you may want to try some of the famous shopping in Bangkok as its known for being notoriously cheap. In the evening we meet again for dinner, drinks and more group bonding.

Day 3: Thai spa and overnight train

Try a traditional Thai massage before we travel overnight on the train down south, and swap the hustle and bustle of Bangkok for the tranquil lakes of Khao Sok National Park – situated in the Surat Thani province of Thailand. Check out the amazing views both as we leave Bangkok and enter Surat from the comfort of your own full size bed.

Check out the Getting to Thailand section for more information on transport.

Day 4: Khao Sok National Park

Head to our floating bungalows on a longtail boat whilst stopping along the way for a quick dip and dive. Try your hand at some kayaking or chill with a beer in a tube in front of the stunning backdrop of this limestone mountain range. We’ll be staying in floating bungalows on a fresh-water lake surrounded by rainforest which looks like something out of Jurassic Park! Watch our Khao Sok video here!

Day 5: Arrive in Phangan – Bottle Beach

Travel to Koh Phangan by ferry and head straight to a secluded paradise beach. Bottle Beach is our favorite beach in the world, and for good reason. It is quiet, amazingly beautiful, only accessible by boat and to make it even better, we pretty much get the whole place to ourselves.  Relax here for the afternoon and enjoy a spot of volleyball, pool, sunbathing or swimming. In the evening we can enjoy dinner and some cocktails on the beach next to a camp fire with fire show and then either  get an early one or party into the night with our own private beach party in paradise.

Day 6: Beaches, Muay Thai & Haad Rin

Wake up in your own time to the sound of the waves rolling on to the beach or get up early and make the most of this amazing place. Kayak, play volleyball, sunbathe, swim or even do some optional wake boarding courtesy of our mate Jamie from Wake Up who drives round in his boat just for us! (If conditions allow). We are picked up early afternoon and taken back to our main Koh Phangan accommodation via a local Muay Thai gym so you can try out a bit of Thailand’s national sport, Thai Boxing! After we have checked in and showered, we will arrange a time for dinner , watch the sun go down from our beach side resort and then maybe head down to Haad Rin beach (or one of the islands many other awesome parties) for drinks and more good times!

Day 7: Round Island Boat Cruise

Today we embark on a voyage around Koh Phangan on board our big boat. Spend the day taking in the amazing tropical island scenery, stop for some snorkelling and to see a waterfall (seasonal), check out some beaches and relax or party on board. As if it couldn’t get any better, we have free drinks, food and booze all day.

In the evening we’ll go for a group farewell dinner (on us!) then head down to the beach for drinks and maybe a bit of a last night party.

Day 8: See our TruTravels Thai Experience

Scroll up to check the itinerary for the first part of the tour. On day 8 you will check in to your full moon party accommodation and enjoy a few evening drink at a local beach bar.

Day 9: Phangan Slip N Fly Party (with water slides!!)

We head to one of Phangans newest parties – Slip N Fly – for some water fun on the gigantic slides with chill out pool, volleyball, games, drinks, DJ’s dance floors and plenty of party people. Get ready for some serious good times! We like this place so much we decided to do a trureview episode and blog on it. Check it out here.

Day 10: Total Wipeout and Sunset Pool Party

Spend the day at the Total Wipeout course. Afterwards we head to Amsterdam Bar which has an awesome infinity pool overlooking the ocean. Another perfect cocktail and sunset spot. Also reviewed in blog above.

Day 11: Full Moon Party!

You have a free day to recharge the batteries, chill in a hammock or on the beach and get ready for one of the biggest parties you can experience. Our Full Moon warm up party kicks off again in the hostel which by now will be full of over 100 other full moon party goers, we get ready with drinks, games and plenty of fluro body paint before we head down to Haad Rin for the main event. Here’s a little snippet of the madness..

Day 12: Woosaa day (regroup and recover)

Depending on what time you stumble home from the party depends on what you do today. Head to the beach for a day in the sun or to one of the after parties to carry on getting your groove on. We also organise a free Thai massage to help you recover from the night before!

Day 13: Tru Checkout

The awesomeness finally comes to an end. You may have added Top Up Adventures to your trip, otherwise your group leader can help you plan your travel wherever you need to go.

Can't decide which part was the best part of the journey; the sleeper train adventure (better than The Darjeeling Limited), the amazing tour guides --all American, Canadian, and British, the Khao Sok National Park (water so blue, and so secret, it felt like The Beach), or the hookups at the Full Moon Party on Koh Phangan. Everyone had a great time! Thanks Joe Fallon! You run a really tight ship!

Amazing 16 day tour of Thailand and Cambodia. Best experience of my life in beautiful places. Some of the views and sunsets/sunrises were mind blowing. The guides Ryan, Luke and Kyle were a great laugh and went above and beyond to make the trip the best experience possible. Can't recommend Tru Travels enough !!

Where do I start?! I booked on with TruTravels on the 23 day Full Moon Party of Thailand, and I have to say it was the best 3 weeks of my life!! For the first time in my life I was travelling solo and was slightly apprehensive, however the TruTravel family welcomed me in straight away. Our guides Art, Andy and Shane were quality, really organised but at the same time down to earth and up for any party!! I'd never been over to the Far East before and I have to say Thailand blew my mind! Im so glad I chose TruTravels for the trip as all accommodation and transport was paid for, along with certain excursions. Favourite place has to be Echo Beach in Koh Phangan, unbelievable atmosphere and the guys there made us all feel at home. If you're thinking of either a couple weeks in Asia, or the beginning of an adventure, don't hesitate to check these guys out!!

I had an amazing time on the Cambodia Monkey Ladder tour! A lot of stuff was planned, but there was plenty of time to do what you wanted to do or just relax. I would not have had nearly as much fun on my own. The tru travels team is also super helpful if you have any questions about unrelated future travel! Thanks Amy, Luke and Holly!! :)

Our group leader Drew was incredible, cared so much for our group and truly knew how to party with us! TruTravels is so organised, nothing went wrong, what more could you ask for? To not leave after the tour! Drew (Canadian dude with a shiny head!) for the winner!!
