Chaweng is well known for its nightlife.
From high society hangouts such as Q-Bar, 9Gems or Bar Solo, to the more widely known and mid-level IN bars and chill-out places, down to the infamous red light establishments, everything that you may be looking for is available along the streets or on the beachfront.
One of the most popular places is Ark Bar, where people meet in the early evening hours before heading into Chaweng Street and Soi Green Mango to enjoy the vibrating music, to dance, and to meet friends, stretching the night into the early hours of the new day. For those who are looking for a quieter place, a few very nice locations with great atmosphere can be found. Every wish can be fulfilled.
BoPhut has a few very nice bars that are less frequented but that meet a high standard. Some of them are located directly on the beach, others are to be found a little hidden close to the main street of BoPhut. a place to suit your taste of nightlife on Samui.
For those who rather prefer a great dinner place instead of the vibrating nightlife of Chaweng, a number of renowned high quality restaurants are available. We advise you to take a look into the dining guide as soon you arrive. If you wish to experience an authentic Thai dinner, we recommend visiting one of the very simple restaurants along the streets or even one of the street-kitchens. Best quality local dishes will be prepared with passion in no time, and served with Thai friendliness. There’s no need to be concerned about eating in such places, as the food will always be cooked fresh!
