Haven't been myself, but from what I hear, there are "Full Moon Parties" pretty much every week, all over, which aren't really FMPs at all... I guess the monthlies on Koh Samui are the real deal. I'm sure someone here has been and can fill you in on the unlisted dirt.

I have a friend who just went there and she told me that the full moon party is during the first week of every month.

I think there is a party there everynight, except the night before political elections. I was there last summer and it just happened to be the night before a major election, everything was shut down-bummer.

From my experience, Ko Phangan (Hat Rin) is not at all like other parts of Thailand. It's dirty, expensive, and the people aren't as nice. If you're going to party, lock up your belongings and only take the money you want to spend. I wouldn't recommend staying right on the beach at Hat Rin, I heard countless stories of drunken break-ins. There are lots of places just off the beach which are 'safer'

Good luck and have a killer time!
