Chaweng Beach Nightlife

What to Do at Night in Chaweng Beach

Chaweng is Koh Samui's Party Central. All along the Beach Road you will see sois (streets) leading off into warrens of bars and pubs of varying appeal and popularity. The epicentre of all this hedonism and fun is undoubtedly Soi Green Mango in Central Chaweng, with Soi Reggae, by the lake, coming in a close second.

Before we get too hyperbolic about Chaweng's nightlife it's best to remember that bars close at 02:00 by order of the police so the party curve zooms upward past midnight and peaks a little earlier than some would prefer. And yes, some bars stay open later – those whose owners have friends in high places. Here are some Chaweng night areas to check out.

The Chaweng Muay Thai Boxing Stadium organises major Muay Thai events with local and foreign fighters. Located at the back of Soi Solo Bar off Chaweng Beach Road, you can enjoy matches on Tuesdays and Fridays from 9 pm until midnight (or earlier if fast knock-outs occur).
