The world famous Full Moon Party is set to take place tomorrow on neighbouring Koh Tao. Like most months, Koh Tao becomes a little quieter for a couple of days as the crowds head across to Phangan to enjoy the revelry.

Whilst the dive sites are quiet, the team of Divemaster interns here at Simple Life have been enjoying great dives off Koh Tao.

Plus this evening is Thailand’s annual Loy Krathong festival. Translated as ‘to float a basket’, krathongs are decorative baskets which are floated out to see. The Thai’s usually place a bit of hair and a nail clipping on their krathong before setting it afloat, with the belief that they are sending all bad things away and will enjoy a fantastic next year.

The main celebration is planned to take place around the pier area in Mae Haad this evening.

Happy Loy Krathong everyone!
