Samui Nightlife
Samui Nightlife - TravelPuppy.com

Nightlife activities are varied here and these include lounges, bars and nightclubs. Don't expect Bangkok or Pattaya, but you won't miss excitement if that is what you are seeking. The open-air bars are good for some talks; for pepping up for the big party later. On Chaweng Beach Road, the Jazz Junction is a perfect spot to have simple chats and enjoy your drinks. Its gracefulness is improved by great cocktails, cool jazz, smooth grooves and sunshine soul. The Thai style bar is open from 4.00 pm to 2.00 am.

You can go straight to The Club where you will find different surroundings: warm candlelight's and electric jazz, soul, funk, mellow grooves and an uncommon feeling of oneness with the crowd. For those seeking some light entertainment, head for the Christy Cabaret which is the island's own brand of cabaret.

1 of the more popular discotheques is the Green Mango and dancing starts at 10.00 pm and lasts until the early hours of the morning. The large dance floor throbs with a crowd sweating it out to the latest disco tunes. There is also an open space with tables for you just a little further from the main dance floor.

The Reggae Pub in Chaweng is popular with its logo of the face of Bob Marley. Reggae music is played here and a live band leads you to some wild dancing.

The main party spot is Lamai Beach. Bauhaus screens live sport events. The place is designed in a different style on certain days and there is also a night for you to dance to true-blue underground music.


Cabaret shows are new on the island; however, these attract more and more local people and foreign visitors. The show is patterned over the musicals and features songs and dances (with a combination of American and Chinese songs and classical and modern Thai dances) spiced up with gags by popular comedy acts.

The charm of the players is likely the most interesting part. They excite with their sparkling costumes, made to complement the dazing production designs. Bring your entire family and enjoy fantastic cabaret shows.

Live Music

At Secret Garden, the Beach Pub has become 1 of South East Asia's main venues in the last 5 years. Musicians, both pro and semi-pro have the opportunity to perform on a marvelous beach together with other musicians from all corners of the glob.
