You’ll want to find a guest friendly hotel in Koh Samui near all the nightlife. Fortunately the best ones are located there. In Koh Samui there are two main entertainment districts – Chaweng and Lamai. Both are great places to party but Chaweng is bigger and the wilder of the two.

In Chaweng you’ll want to be at Soi Green Mango where you’ll find many beer bars and Thai bar girls. There are also a couple of gogo bars too. This is Koh Samui’s Soi Cowboy or Walking Street like in Pattaya.

At the end of the road you’ll find the namesake establishment – The Green Mango Club, which is a famous nightclub that has been around for decades.
