Koh Phangan, Thailand
The popular Fullmoon parties of Koh Phangan began a few years back when a group of tourists discovered that the full moons seen from this beach were the most beautiful they had ever seen and decided to throw a party to celebrate this discovery. Ever since then, party people from all over the globe have been coming to Koh Phangan to join the celebrations.
A Fullmoon party takes place on this beach at least once every month with 8 to 12,000 people attending during low season, 15 to 20,000 during high season and 30,000 on New Yearâ€™s Eve. Every party starts at sundown when the moon starts to take shape over the sandy beaches and as the night settles-in music starts to take over, as MCs take turn to please all those present by mixing trance, techno, drum and bass and even reggae. Fire-dancers and fire-eaters complete the party atmosphere and make sure that you wonâ€™t soon forget your Koh Phangan adventure.
Goa has been one of the planetâ€™s most popular party scenes ever since the 1960s when the hippies reached Indiaâ€™s oriental beaches and introduced their culture to these places. To this day hippie influences can be detected in the psychedelic trance and techno beats that can be heard at Goa parties and there are those who say that Goa music makes no sense until your high on drugs, preferably acid.
A Portuguese colony until 1962, Goa is a must-visit destination for all party animals that are looking for something different, like psychedelic trance. The beaches here are filled with clubs and shacks, but the recent death of a British tourist has drawn attention on these establishments and inquiries have revealed that Goa is more than just a party paradise, itâ€™s also a drugs, sex and crime paradise, and the authorities say things will soon change.
Cancun is officially the worldâ€™s most popular spring break destination and for good reason. This incredible resort offers its visitors some of the worldâ€™s most beautiful sunbathed beaches, luxury hotels and most importantly, some of the wildest nightclubs in South America.
In the day time Cancun is very calm, people just like to swim in the turquoise waters, lay in the sunlight or by the pool, sipping cocktails, but that all changes as soon as the sun sets and the clubs open their gates for all the hungry party animals. Whether you like house music, dance, rock, jazz, latino or any other music genre for that matter, youâ€™re guaranteed to find a place to enjoy yourself in Cancun.
Just one thing you should remember, in case you didnâ€™t know this: donâ€™t drink the water! As long as you only drink bottled water, your Mexican experience should be one to remember for all the right reasons.
Often referred to as the Acropolis of party destinations, Ios is indeed one of the top adult party destinations in Europe. Calm little port city by day, Ios comes alive at midnight when all the tourists stampede towards the more than 100 clubs set around the center of town. Whether they opt for the Blue Note, the Flame or the Slammer Bar, everyone is guaranteed a good time in Ios.
What makes Ios special among all Greece travel destinations, is the fact that it has no special attractions, no ruins to visit, tourists come here for just two things: drinking and sex. The 20-some-year-old visitor base is made up of heavy drinkers that pass out in the alleys of the resort and donâ€™t recover until the next evening.
So if youâ€™re into partying until daybreak, drinking yourself unconscious and having random sex, than Ios should be at the top of your party destinations list.
