Most of you will have heard of the legendary Full Moon Party that takes place in Thailand, many of you will want to eventually head to Thailand to experience a Full Moon Party and some of you will have already been to one. After all, these parties have become famous around the world.
The Full Moon Party that takes place in Thailand attracts people from all over the world, with music, dancing, drinking and just out right partying on the beach into the early hours of the morning. Most of the people you talk to, who have experienced a Full Moon Party, will tell you how great it is but there is also a dark side to the event.
A small minority of people who attend Thailand's Full Moon Party actually have horror stories to tell, where they are drugged, raped, robbed and left for dead. The illegal drug Kratom is mixed with insect repellent DEET and cough medicine, then added to cola and ice, to make a lethal concoction. The drink might taste fine but it leaves the user stupefied, which then makes them an easy target.
This obviously does not happen to everyone who attends a Full Moon Party and it is only a small minority but that is still too many. If you ever decide to attend one of these events, make sure you know what is going into your drinks and surround yourself with people you know and trust.
