Soldiers descended on Ban Thai beach following a tip off from locals that a party was being held.

On the beach soldiers found more than 100 foreigners partying, Thairath reported.

Also found was evidence of illegal drug use and drugs for sale.

Soldiers confiscated 147 cylinders of Nitrous Oxide, commonly known as hippy crack, as well as a large amount of cannabis and other drug paraphernalia.

Thairath described the holding of the beach party during the month of October “inappropriate”.

Soldiers later visited Haad Rin beach, the venue of the original Full Moon Party.

While not on the scale normally seen at a Full Moon Party, loud music was still playing and foreign tourists were seen eating and drinking.
