A hedonistic whirlwind of music, dancing and entertainment, full moon parties are the ultimate one night beach festivals, which as the name suggests, are usually held once a month to celebrate the appearance of the full moon.
Though synonymous with Thailand, the country from where they originate, today, full moon parties have become an international success, and can be found on beaches right across the globe, from the Caribbean to the Croatian Coast and everywhere in between.
