Trips festival: More ferries added for full-moon party ravers
With attendance at Koh Pha Ngan’s famous full-moon parties expected to jump in coming months as high tourist season arrives, Raja Ferry Port Co is adding more trips to its schedule.
The company announced on Monday that, from next Sunday (September 3) until the end of the year, it would add two more ferry trips per day to and from the Surat Thani island for five days spanning each month’s party.
There are currently ferry trips to and from the island every two and a half hours.
The ferries will begin carrying party-goers back and forth on each full-moon day and for two days before and after, now also departing from Don Sak Pier at noon and from Koh Pha Ngan back to the mainland at 3pm.
