Nightlife in Koh Phangan

What to Do and Where to Go at Night in Koh Phangan

Koh Phangan nightlife offers a wide range of ambiences that can most visitors. Thailand’s ubiquitous reggae bars can be found scattered along the coast at Chaloklum and sleepy Ao Thong Nai Pan Noi, but if you’re coming to Koh Phangan purely for nightlife, then make sure you stay in Haad Rin.

Haad Rin has the largest and most concentrated collection of bars and clubs in the Gulf of Thailand while the rest of the island is a haven of tranquillity. Sure, the twice-monthly Half Moon parties in Ban Tai are legendary and well worth the 30-minute taxi ride from Haad Rin, while Thongsala has a few pubs that attract more expatriates than visitors. Enjoy the 2 extremes of nightlife in Koh Phangan – dining under the stars on a peaceful beach or dancing the night away to throbbing drum n’ bass, techno and hip-hop.
