With Base hostel’s 50th Full Moon Party celebrations happening on Magnetic Island this Friday 12th September, we thought it would be an awesome opportunity to give you some fool-proof tips on surviving your first or twenty-first Full Moon Party - wherever it may be!

Pretty much every person’s motives are the same when attending a Full Moon Party - get loose and party hard.  In doing so, it’s worth trying to keep your wits (relatively) about you!

  • Only bring with you items that you don’t mind losing or getting stolen - carry as little cash as possible
  • Stay close to your mates as best you can - whatever state you end up in, it’s best to be close to people you can trust
  • Firedancers are popular at Full Moon Parties

  • Try to buy your alcohol and anything else from a recognised store or vendor, not from a complete randomer
  • Carry your resort details in your pocket/ purse in case of emergency
  • Wear shoes or flip-flops to avoid cutting your feet to bits on broken bottles
  • Never carry drugs on your person - there are incredibly strict laws against them, particularly in Thailand

Keeping all these ’sensible’ tips in mind, get out there, get loose and have an absolute blast, Full Moon Parties are always awesome!
