Koh Samui, there are many different origin stories for the name of this Island in Thailand, but one thing is true. It has become a major nighttime entertainment spot. Koh Samui nightlife is among the best in Asia. The white sand beaches and clear water bring an energetic and young crowd from all over the world. From cheap beer bars to gourmet restaurants, this diverse island offers tourists a party all night long. Chaweng Beach, Lamai Beach and Bophut Beach are the main spots to keep in mind when booking reservations.
Start the evening at your own private luxury villa. Maybe a late afternoon nap in the large comfortable bed to get you rested for the evening events. Wake up and admire the beautiful views and luxurious furnishings in your home away from home. Take a dip in the gorgeous private pool complete with a stunning backdrop. The energy and life of the island is all around you and a great party is not far from your Samui villa.
Full Moon Party
When tourists kept coming to Koh Phangan to see the full moon on Haad Rin beach a party was formed to welcome them. Now thousands of people come to celebrate the full moon at night. Whatever music you’re into they have it. Techno, trance, drum & brass, commercial, and reggae, you can find it here. The boat called The Haad Rin Queen leaves from the Big Buddha pier at Bophut on Koh Samui and takes you to Haad Rin directly. The ride takes about forty five minutes.
Ark Bar created the glamour of nightlife on Samui. Fire dancers, beautiful teak tables on the beach with excellent food, dance parties, and a friendly vibe are here at this must visit spot. Ark has been open for many years and it shows that they know how to throw a party. Ark is open from seven in the morning until two in the morning the following day. Maybe it’s easier to say that Ark Bar is only closed for five hours from two in the morning until seven.
Paris Follies Cabaret is one of many exciting and extremely Thai forms of nighttime entertainment on the island. Dancing and lip syncing, acrobatics and erotic performances by a troupe of glittering dancers in colorful costumes. They will impress and delight the audience of any age with their moves and talent. The whole show is a visual sensory experience of glitter and sparkle. Be sure to check it out, you won’t want to miss this one! The show starts at eight in the evening but there is another show at half past nine and at eleven. The best part is, the show is FREE. However, drinks are twice the price during this time. It is definitely worth it though.
