By day, Ko Phangan is a lovely white-sand island off the Central Gulf Coast of Southern Thailand. But for merrymakers, it?s the island?s infamous all-night Full Moon Party that?s the major attraction. Head to Haad Rin beach on the island?s southern tip and join more than 30,000 revellers living it up under the moonlight. Often a rite of passage for young backpackers travelling through the region, the monthly party draws the crowd with cheap drinks, beachside grilled BBQ snacks, thumping music that ranges from hip-hop and trance to reggae, and a trippy atmosphere complete with fire dancers and neon-painted party people. Sounds like your scene? Check this year?s Full Moon Party dates then hop on a 25-minute speedboat from Ko Samui to Haad Rin beach. 2. Mardi Gras, New Orleans, USA mardi gras

Possibly one of the longest-running parties since it started in the late 1600s, the annual Mardi Gras still remains America?s coolest bash. The occasion originated to mark the beginning of Lent, and revellers take to the street to join in a celebration of fetes and parades before Ash Wednesday. Expect sumptuously themed floats, elaborately costumed actors (and revellers), a festoon of beads and trinkets thrown out to parade-goers, and an all-round, over-the-top celebration of pomp and colour. 3. Carnival, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil carnival brasil

In Brazil, Carnival is a four-day festival that also takes place before Lent. Celebrations are held throughout the country, but head to Rio for the biggest, flashiest party. It draws over a million visitors, who flock to the capital city for this spectacular extravaganza of costumes, dance and fun. The highlight of Carnival is the Samba Parade, where top samba schools from Brazil and abroad participate in a fierce competition of costumes and floats. It doesn?t matter if you have two left feet, the electrifying atmosphere will sweep you up and you?ll soon be dancing to the samba beat. 4. Lan Kwai Fong, Hong Kong lan kwai fong

Party central Lan Kwai Fong is proof that Hong Kong never sleeps. This legendary nightlife lane stretches between Wyndham and D?Aguilar streets; it may be a narrow strip but is home to some of the best bars in the city. Come Friday and Saturday nights, both locals and foreigners come out in throngs to bar hop, taking their pick from cool dance clubs spinning international acts, to intimate lounge bars and casual beer joints. 5. Ibiza, Spain ibiza spain

The word Ibiza conjures images of rave parties, balmy shores and sultry days and nights. This picturesque Spanish island, the birthplace of the rave and foam parties, is the dream pilgrimage of every club goer. The uber-cool crowd has included artists, celebrities, musicians, actors and supermodels, from The Beatles and The Rolling Stones to Kate Moss and Elle Macpherson. From boat parties to all-day poolside cocktail revelry and beach techno clubs ? if it?s hip, hot and happening, you?re bound to find it on Ibiza.
