Moon Fever in Chaweng or Plai Laem
Due to the success of the various 'moon parties' on the neighboring island of Koh Phangan it was inevitable that moon party fever was going to make it the 12 km over the sea to Koh Samui.
There is a Black Moon Party at Chaweng Lake View. It is a big venue that can hold up to 4,000 people. Famous DJs such as Judge Jules, DJ Marky, Timo Maas and Eddie Halliwell have all played at this popular party. Chaweng Lake View is the biggest outdoor venue in South East Asia. For those who love a big party atmosphere the Black Moon Party at Chaweng Lake View is the night for you.
The price of entry to the Black Moon Party is 200 Thai Baht. Sometimes it drops down to 100 Thai Baht during the low season and sometimes it is above 200 Thai Baht if a big name DJ is playing.
It is best to check forums and social media as to where and when the next Black Moon Party is going to be held. The situation is confused because some of the previous Black Moon Parties have been held on Plai Laem beach. It is a cool beach location that suits the party atmosphere. However, Plai Laem is up in the north-east corner of Koh Samui. It takes about 15 to 20 minutes to get to Plai Laem from Chaweng and the journey obviously puts off many party goers who cringe at the thought of the taxi costs to and from the party. It is also rumored that the move to Plai Laem is only temporary while some building works are being done in Chaweng.
Confusion about location aside, have a look at the YouTube clip of the Black Moon Party at Chillin Feeling Beach Club at Plai Laem. It is a good quality video clip that is obviously professionally made. The Thai anchor has plenty of charisma and the interview with the party organizer is hilarious when they both start to chat up some girls from Singapore. The clip is in Thai. It is always wonderful to hear the sing-song and expressive tones of the Thai language.
It is worth checking out theNaughtywitch's YouTube channel. The channel has several video clips made by the same company that is sponsored by various businesses on Koh Samui. There is also a female anchor that does some of the clips. She is sensational - charming, intelligent and bi-lingual.
