If ’80s pop band Wang Chung hailed from Koh Samui instead of London, the hook of its most well-known song might instead go “Everybody Cha-weng tonight!” Whether you’re looking for a relaxed evening filled with fine wines and gourmet cuisine or to party with backpackers from around the world, you’ll find the best nightlife in Koh Samui on popular Chaweng Beach. There are bars and clubs of all kinds here, but if you’re seeking a lively scene our Forbes Travel Guide editors recommend Reggae Pub and The Green Mango Club for drinks and late-night revelry presided over by international DJs. You can also find venues on Chaweng hosting muay Thai boxing matches, traditional Thai dance performances and fun, over-the-top cabaret shows starring Thai ladyboys — your hotel concierge should be able to make recommendations for and help you book all three of these distinctly Thai entertainment options.
