Party World for the youngster

I am not a party animal but i love fun, This will be the 2nd time i am celebrating New Year Eve in thailand. The first time i was there was in 08/09 and it was so fun and i hadn't enough of that, so i come back for party everyday... hahahhaa

Anyway, If you coming here, you'll see lots of westerners than the local, especially at Haat Rin area. There are people from Israel, Europe, America and lots more. The bozz there are super cheap, but the food, i would say standard, Lots of pizza and burgers, pan cakes and local food of course. Most places will serve western food.

The party here start soon place gets dark, there are lots of music along the beach, you'll walk you never know if you walk til the end because the place were pack of people. The party itself is at the beach, so if u bored you can jump in the water. Fun fun.. And for new year, the party won't stop until the sun on top of your head.. hahaha. what i mean is, the party will continue with after party at 10am, so whoever were there on 1st of Jan of every year, then they will know when the party is stop.. maybe they continue until the next morning, who knew.

Body Painting

Body painting is something that you must do when you have party there. It just cool that you could say anything at all...some people just wrap their body with green color, to be halk..some just orange, to me Mr orange.. hahaha.. i don't know. just do it the way you are, is the best.
