Channel 7 news reported on the Full Moon Party held at Had Rin beach in Koh Phangan earlier this week. 
 
They reported that since the local district chief had ordered a crackdown on drug taking at the monthly party the image of Thailand had improved. 
 
The media reported that mostly foreign tourists and Thai tourists were having a great time with many decked out  in luminous paint dancing the night away.
 
Yes, many were drunk but it was by and large good-natured and safe.
 
Channel 7 said that safety was a priority at the party. Party goers  were checked on arrival and exit for passports and ID cards.
 
Shops were checked for selling fake booze, overcharging and the distribution of drugs. 
 
Since the Koh Phangan district chief had ordered "No Drugs" it was better for all, they said.
