Koh Samui nightlife

Koh Samui's nightlife scene is among the most diverse in Thailand. Two beach towns, Chaweng and Lamai, vie for the heart of the island's after-dark scene. Beach Republic's oceanfront party moves from poolside loungers to late-night dancing. Afterward, partiers gravitate to the hills above Bophut Beach to the famous Q Bar, where hundreds of revelers crowd the dance floor amid panoramic views of the island. For an only-in-Thailand experience, you should check out a kathoey, or "ladyboy," cabaret, the country's answer to a drag show. This is all a warm-up to Asia's most notorious party scene, the Full Moon Party on nearby Koh Phangan, where tens of thousands of revelers rave all night long.
