Lamai Beach Nightlife and Bars

What to do at Night in Lamai Beach

Lamai’s nightlife entertainment is not as large and tremendous as Chaweng’s, its northern neighbour, yet has plenty enough venues from the ubiquitous bar beers to discos to live music bars, and even lady boxing, to please the hardcore partygoers. Most of the action at night is set at and in the streets around the town centre, permitting revelers to easily walk from one joint to the other according to their mood…and sobriety.

There's foot stomping at trendy discos to be found in Lamai, with friendly venues offering a cool ambience with excellent cocktails, top-of-the-range wine labels and easy-going, god-time vibes. If you like to party, Lamai is a great place to stay in Samui Island.
