Among the hundreds of events and parties that take place in Thailand every year, there are a few that you absolutely can’t miss.
From Songkran to the Full Moon Party, these major events are why the Land of Smiles is known as one of the top party destinations in the world.
Whether it’s on the beach, in a club, in the open, or hundreds of meters up at a rooftop bar, here are the 7 most incredible parties in Thailand that you must experience at least once in your life.
We start with the biggest party in Bangkok during Songkran.
Wet & Wild Songkran Festival
When: Songkran (13 to 15th April)
Where: The PIMP Bangkok
During Songkran (the Thai New Year), things get absolutely wild in Thailand, with the entire country coming to a stop while wild parties and festivals take over.
But among all the events that take place during this time, there’s one that is unlike anything else you’ve ever experienced in your life.
The number one gentlemen’s club in Bangkok, The PIMP, organizes the biggest party in Bangkok during Songkran: The Wet & Wild Songkran Festival.
It’s a big event at their club with hundreds of hot young Thai girls in bikinis, the best Thai singers and bands, the most famous net idols, and a private pool and foam party that lasts 3 full days.
If you want a once-in-a-lifetime experience with Thailand’s hottest models, you’ve come to the right place!
The Full Moon Party
When: Every month
Where: Haad Rin Beach, Koh Phangan
The Full Moon Party is reputed as the best beach party in the world for a reason. Every full moon, over 30,000 people gather on the beach.
The Full Moon Party takes place on Haad Rin beach on Koh Phangan island and is by far the most iconic party in Thailand.
From a few hundred backpackers in the 80s to tens of thousands of visitors today, it’s an incredible event with all types of people, music, performers, incredible fire shows and the world famous bucket drinks.
You don’t need tickets, but don’t forget to book your accommodation in advance. The island is taken by storm every time!
We tell you everything there is to know about the full moon party in this guide.
By the way, if a backpacker beach party isn’t your thing, we understand. We put the Full Moon Party on our list of things to avoid in Thailand, and even give you a better alternative in that post.
When: N/A (December 2022)
Where: The Fields, Chon Buri
Some call Wonderfruit Festival the Coachella or even the Burning Man of Southeast Asia. This is because it’s by far the most unique event in Thailand.
Wonderfruit is an alternative festival that’s about more than just music. The festival mixes a wide range of music from indie to techno with art, activities, workshops, healing practices, artisanal products and delicious local food.
Past headliners have included names like Busy P, De La Soul, Woodkid, Rudimental and many more. But the real deal at this festival is the experience on the field, with everything happening there.
So Pool Party
When: Each last Saturday of the month
Where: SO/ Bangkok Hotel, Bangkok
Bangkok has a lot of pool parties throughout the year, one almost every weekend.
But of all the pool parties happening in Bangkok right now, the So Pool Party is the one you must have on your list.
They hold the pool party the last Saturday of each month on the 8th floor of the So Bangkok Hotel. It offers incredible views of the city and the stunning Lumpini Park from its infinity pool.
Each event is absolutely packed with hundreds of beautiful Thais and foreigners, including some of the hottest bikini models in the country.
If you want a VIP table to show off, this is the place!
S2O Songkran Festival
When: Songkran (13th to 15th April)
Where: Show DC, Bangkok
The PIMP’s Wet and Wild Festival isn’t the only big event happening during Songkran in Bangkok.
The S20 Songkran Festival is the biggest music festival during this time and an absolute blast!
Every year the biggest DJs and EDM artists from all over the world come to this event.
To give you an idea of how big it is, in recent years, S2O Bangkok has hosted names like Tiesto, DJ Snake, Steve Aoki, Fatboy Slim and many more.
Set an alarm for when tickets go on sale, as they usually sell out within a few days.

NYE at King Power Mahanakhon Skybar
When: December 31st
King Power Mahanakhon Skybar is the highest rooftop bar in the country, offering 360-degree views of the city from the 79th floor at 368 meters above the ground.
It’s a must-see when you’re in Bangkok, and a walk on the skywalk is something you’ll remember for the rest of your life.
But the best time to visit the Skybar is NYE.
With the incredible 360° view from the rooftop bar it’s one of the few places in the city where you can see the fireworks all over the city!
It’s simply amazing!
808 Festival Pattaya
When: N/A (December 2022)
Where: Nong Nooch Gardens, Pattaya
Let’s close this list with a bang, Pattaya’s biggest electronic music festival: 808!
Like S20 Songkran in Bangkok, it always brings big headliners.
Armin Van Buuren, Zedd, Skrillex, Axwell, Timmy Trumpet, Carnage, Hardwell, Dillon Francis, and many more. They’ve all been there.
If you want to see the biggest artists in electronic music during your stay in Thailand, you can’t miss this event.
The 808 Festival usually goes on for 2 days, so take the weekend off and book a private pool villa in Pattaya with your friends for the after party.
