The nightlife options on Koh Samui are proportional to how developed a particular beach is, with the tourist mecca of Chaweng boasting the most varied choices. Party central is the thumping Green Mango street where bars and clubs stay open well into the earlier hours. Beachside revelry centres on the Ark Bar with lounge seating right on the sand, while the swanky Q Bar is perched hillside offering panoramic vistas, and the chilled out Reggae Pub, a two-decades old lakeside institution.
Lamai also has a vibrant nightlife scene, albeit a little lower end compared to Chaweng with sports pubs and small bars dominating the scene. The main exception on Lamai is Beach Republic, a hip beach club that draws in the crowds especially on weekends. Across the island on the west coast is Samui's ultra trendy venue - Nikki Beach, a globally branded beach club renowned for its legendary special occasion bashes and distinctive tropical style.
