While Ko Phangan boasts beautiful sunsets, the biggest draw to this island for travelers are the after-dark parties. The Full Moon Party is the most popular, and many backpackers traveling through Southeast Asia consider attending one a right of passage.

Fire, glow in the dark body paint, plastic buckets filled with booze, and loads of travelers from all over the world looking to party all night are some of the things you can expect at a Full Moon Party.

If partying all night with hundreds of backpackers isn’t your thing, have no fear, because there are many other options to enjoy in Thailand.

The Damnoen Saduak floating market near Bangkok is a neat place to enjoy delicious food, buy produce, and shop for plenty of kitsch souvenirs.

It’s a sensory overload at the floating market, asalexamoraif shows us in this photo.

Speaking of food, Thai cuisine is known to be one of the most delicious and affordable cuisines available. Curry dishes consisting of rice, noodles, and soups are flavored with many different kinds of spices, and the best meals are often sold by street vendors, making it incredibly easy for travelers to taste a variety of Thai food at very cheap prices.
