Yep, wifey and I went in 2013. Quite the party to say the least. We bought one of those "buckets" they sell on the beach, one too many Sangsom and Cokes put me over. 

I will see if I can find any pics on my other laptop later.

10 months total spent in LOS, I never ventured south of Bangkok. But even when I do end up visiting the South, this type of thing is not for me. Let the real youngsters have all the fun, including undercover BiB selling them dope and then getting arrested

Yes

in my early 30s I spent 6 months in Samui and went over to Panghan a couple of times for it.

I used to stay in Haad Riin though and never got the speedboat back early morning back to Samui.

I was bang into Ibiza though and the Acid house/ U.K raves in the 80s and 90s .

To be honest it wasn't that great, but I'm glad I did it.

 Samui was much better at the time in Chewang's  Soi Green Mango in Sweet Soul and Mango itself.

Been a few years since I went though and I hear Soi Green Mango is no more , which is a shame.

Exactly ..

Though I was never a backpacker we've all been young .

Nothing wrong with enjoying life as you like if affects no one else.

No, for obvious reasons these days.

Done loads of techno festivals and full on mental 'make a donation' parties in the Netherlands, Spiral Tribe and the like.

Took me about 2 years to put my head back together when i finally came back to the UK :marvin:

No, I've never been.  Zero interest and I would fit in about as well as a porcupine in a field of balloons.

A few years ago the 22-year-old daughter of an old friend and her boyfriend visited me in Pattaya.  They were going to Ko PhaNgan for a full-moon party.  I gave them the standard speech about avoiding drugs in Thailand, with emphasis on the many ripoffs and police stings in connection with full-moon parties.  Of course, they had heard through the backpacker network that 'nobody cared" if tourists smoked a little grass at the party. Off they went with high expectations of an equally high time.

They really enjoyed Ko PhaNgan as a tropical island, but were hugely disappointed with the full-moon party itself. It was mostly drunk Russians puking in the sand, plus a lot of Middle Eastern and Indian guys trying to pick up plain vanilla farang girls, they said. The music was lousy, police were everywhere and the dealers were the scummiest they'd ever seen.  No "positive vibes" at all.  They stayed about a hour on the beach, then went back to their hotel.

I haven't been myself since 05 , but a friend of mine was over there last April (and got stuck over there because of lockdown)

He told me they have built a Central there where Green Mango was ...

Maybe someone could confirm it , who has been since it happened I found it hard to believe they would knock it all down and a damn shame.

My two sons have done them both Ibiza and Full Moon, they both say Ibiza is by far the best.

Each to their own. 

I don't know about Ibiza now it looks like a clinical, robotic version of it old self (then again it's a completely different generation ours really knew how to party, not like the Instagram generation)

Ibiza was 100% better back then , though I'd take Thailand for the women 😂
