Amazing Chaweng Beach in Koh Samui
Chaweng Beach and its main town center in Koh Samui in Thailand,is without a doubt, the most popular area among tourists visiting the Island. The town and beach are situated on the north east side of the island with vast majority of the population living in and around the town of Chaweng.
A beautiful 7 kilometer stretch of sandy beach accompanied by hotels, bars and restaurants, make this area a favorite area to stay for many visitors.

A wonderful sandy beach to swim and stroll the day away, with a relaxing atmosphere during the daylight, but comes alive at night!
Chaweng Beach Comes Alive After Dark
The town center is lined on both sides with shops, restaurants of all kinds, food vendors, bars, hotels and much more to keep most everyone happy during the daytime and night time hours. So much so, that the main strip in town exceeds 3 kilometers!
If you holiday plans include living it up at night, then Chaweng is the right place for you. You can dance the night away in a party atmosphere at night for both young and old alike. The very popular Soi Green Mango Strip in town is where all the action is and definitely worth experiencing in the evening hours.
Soi Green Mango Strip
In Thai, ‘Soi’ translates to ‘lane’ and that is basically what this strip is, a side street or long lane in town. Here you will find lines of loud clubs and so called ‘girly bars’ with loud music coming from everywhere!
A very busy and popular place for those that like to party the night away! 😮

A Word of Caution
As with any other place in the world, have fun on your vacation, but do Travel Safely at all times. Always be aware of your surroundings, try to stay in groups with friends, especially when out at night and in strange places. We do tend to let our guard down on vacation, especially when over indulging in alcohol. Unfortunately, this is when we are most vulnerable and easy targets for criminals. Taking a few extra precautions can keep you safe most anywhere you travel.
From hosted weekly beach parties, Thai boxing, to dancing the night away, it is all here in Chaweng on the island of Koh Samui! 😀
Accommodation for All Tastes and Budgets
In town, you can easily find modest and very affordable accommodations to some lovely higher star resorts to suit most every ones taste and budget. There are some wonderful newer beach front resorts situated directly on Chaweng Beach but further away from the hustle and bustle of the main town center.
Perfect for those looking for more luxurious accommodations, yet just minutes from the towns many restaurants, shops and bars to explore when so desired. On our visit, we stayed in a much quieter and peaceful part of the island known as Choeng Mon. Situated on the northern tip, but just a short 15 to 20 minute taxi ride south to the town center of Chaweng.
For us, it was perfect and especially so for those who like a more quiet and relaxed vacation, but at the same time, are within easy reach to visit the town center and what it has to offer. Be sure to check out my recent article and photos on Choeng Mon Beach and what this area has to offer. Be sure to check out my post and photos on beautiful Choeng Mon Beach.
