Aside from its wild and wackiness, Thailand is also known for its fantastic beaches! Well, despite being a "white-boy" who needs to slather on loads of sunscreen to maintain his pearly-white complexion, I still love the beach! When I first heard about Full Moon Parties, I thought that this was a very cultural Thai event. I came to find out that it is really more of a drunken backpacker fest. I have been on this island, Koh Phangan for a few nights now, on Laem Niad beach on the West Coast, and have been away from the madness. I do intend on diving into the wildness for the next few nights before heading to Koh Phi Phi. Koh Phi Phi is another island made famous by the movie "The Beach". I must say, traveling around Thailand has been more expensive than I anticipated, but much easier than India (as fellow travelers had informed me). I went down to Had Rin today to explore the craziness that people speak of and it was not too outrageous. Outrageous was the storm this morning, as well as one of the beaches in the area - called Haad Seekantang, or more colloquially known as "Leela Beach". I will spend my last night on Laem Niad and may very well miss the peacefulness and serenity of this location. However, for the time being it is a bit TOO dead for me, which is why I will enjoy the atmosphere in Had Rin! More information to come about the infamous Full Moon Party soon!
