Koh Phangan has cancelled its famous, or infamous, monthly Full Moon Party for October out of respect for the cremation for the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej.

The cremation is on Oct. 26, which has been declared a holiday this year so that citizens can pay their respects, reported Bangkok Post.  

October’s full moon is on Oct. 5 but no party will take place and entertainment will be toned down on the island and throughout the country for the entire month.
