Christmas in Koh Phangan/ New Year’s Eve Party in Haad Rin

Christmas is not celebrated as part of Thai tradition but this does not stop the festivities on the island of Koh Phangan. The build-up from Christmas towards New Year is the most exciting time of year on the island, also known as Asia’s main New Year party centre, and this is when Haad Rin comes alive with the constant buzz of trepidation. This festive period has become increasingly popular amongst travellers from around the world who come to experience Koh Phangan’s Christmas, Countdown festival and New Year. More than 30,000 visitors flock here every year and line the infamous Haad Rin Nok beach, where the Full Moon Party is also held. Christmas   The festivities kick off in Haad Rin with Christmas on the 25th December. It’s a unique and memorable way to celebrate the day, where visitors exchange the snow for white sands and winter jackets for neon body-paint. The concept is the same as Full Moon Party, with dozens of sound systems along the beach that blast music until dawn, the ever-present fire displays and the impressive mix of party-goers that dance the night away. It’s a sensational party for those in search of an alternative way to spend Christmas where people can celebrate in true Koh Phangan style. Countdown Festival The Countdown Festival begins the day after Christmas and carries on until the New Years Party on December 31st.
