Recent research shows that the island Koh Phangan is not suffering the international economic crisis while the tourism industry as a total, according to the Tourism Council of Thailand, has hit a 49-year low and is expected to decrease by 22 per cent this year.

The number of hotel bookings on Koh Phangan in the first nine months of 2009 increased over 12% compared to last year. One of the main reasons for this fact is the continuous popularity of the full moon beach party. Research by major Koh Phangan hotel booking  agency http://www.phanganresorts.com also shows that over 85% of online bookings are around this world famous monthly event. Almost 65% of the visitors prefer to stay in or around the Haad Rin area where the party takes place.
