Koh Chang Bars and Nightlife
It’s fair to say that Koh Chang isn’t the biggest party island in the Gulf of Thailand and there are more lively places to visit, such as Koh Phangan and Koh Phi Phi, if that’s what you’re looking for. But, that certainly doesn’t mean that the various Koh Chang bars and nightlife options will disappoint you in any way – far from! Plenty of cafes, beach bars, beer bars, pubs and clubs can be found along almost every beach, especially the popular ones like White Sand Beach, Klong Pao, Kai Bae and Lonely Beach, the latter being the hub for a whole host of regular parties, including the Full Moon Party.
The island has a fantastic selection of beach front bars and venues that will keep even the fussiest tourist happy. A number of Koh Chang bars and nightlife venues draw in the crowds every evening and offer a wide variety of entertainment, including live music, DJ sets for those who love to dance and some other bars will simply put on some all time favourite tracks played through their i-phone.
There is a real warmth and welcoming feel to the bars on Koh Chang, which attracts both tourists and locals, whether it’s for the awesome variety of music, the reasonably priced drinks or the great company. Some Koh Chang bars and nightlife venues have existed since tourism first took hold on the island and have gained a very good reputation over the years. Still today many bar owners see customers coming back to the island again and again simply because of their friendly staff and welcoming atmosphere.
Expect all kinds of nightlife options from something ‘soft’ like a relaxing chat over delicious coffee at the many cafés, lively pubs – where live music, sports on big screen TV and great drinks are on offer, to wild and rowdy beach and beer bars. Depending on which beach you’re staying, nightlife in each area differs in terms of the crowds, types of music and the vibe.
Spend your day lazy at a beach bar with the warm sea lapping on the sand only meters away from where you sit. Enjoy a healthy fruit shake, order a cold beer or sample their delicious local fresh coconuts. Chill on the beach until the sun goes down, then when you are ready for a bit more action, head to one of the more lively beaches such as White Sands or Lonely Beach to party all night long if you wish. Here you’ll get to listen to local and international DJ’s play everything from deep house, electronic, commercial and funk. For all the sports enthusiasts, why not arrange to watch a game at one of the sports bars so you can really get into the spirit of things and make as much noise as you like.
