I’ll be posting about our past few days in Pai tonight; great places to eat, a few photos of our trips and also about our massive change of plans due to me having food poisoning the past few days!
In the meantime I thought I’d share a video that I’ve made of my December in Thailand.
Please take the time to click on the pic below and watch if you can, I’d appreciate any feedback as I’m going to make one each month i’m travelling.
Places I travelled in December (in order) were:
Bangkok, Kanchanaburi, Phuket, Koh Phi Phi, Koh Lanta, Krabi/Railay, Koh Samui, Koh Panghan, Koh Tao.
I hope you like it!
Thailands famous Full Moon party this month just happened to fall on Christmas Day. What a year to come travelling!
It will go down in the book as a memory I’ll remember for years to come. I’ll probably even tell my grandkids about it one day, and I hope they will get to experience one too.
It lived up to all my expectations, those of which were very high.
A long beach of thousands of party goers, a gleaming moon in the clear night sky, rows of stalls selling Thai buckets and UV hats and vest tops. UV face painting, night swimming, party music… Basically everything I love in life all in one place. One great big happy festival.
Down a random slide straight onto the sand (so dangerous but funny..they’d never allow it in England)
We had a home time of around 6am, what a very merry Christmas it was.
Every 1 & 10 days before the Full Moon, a Jungle Experience Festival takes place in Baan Nai Wok. Conveniently for us this happened to be Christmas Eve this year, so off we went, DEETed up.
Welcome to the jungle.. Time for fun and games
With an impressive line up including ibizas Marco Loco, we was in for a great night of underground house music, something we haven’t really heard yet in Thailand.
Open air jungle, fire breathers, a 3D stage that can be confused as the head of either a cat or dog (I’m still not sure) and a circle of bars serving the famous Thai buckets.
Let the fun begin..
There were still tropical downpours, Hense my beautifully fashionable Anorak in all the pictures, but hey that just added to the craziness.
At 600 baht entry fee it was pricey but I would say worth the experience as ive never raved in a jungle before!
I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves..
Have any of you been to one of these parties before?
