Nightlife & Thai Girls on Koh Chang

Last updated: February 5th, 2016 | in Central Thailand | Islands | Koh Chang | Nightlife | Thai Girls | Trat

Koh Chang has a lot more to offer than beautiful beaches and tropical rainforest. The nightlife on Thailand’s second largest island is wild, diverse and thriving. There isn’t anything to do on the island’s quiet and unspectacular east coast (apart from some remote five star resorts), so if you are out exploring this part of the island by motorcycle you better return before 6pm unless you want to join the locals for a fishing trip out in the ocean.

All the action in Koh Chang after sunset is going on in the beach towns of the west coast.

The first thing you will notice when going up and down the main road from beach to beach on the west coast is how many beer bars there are. Almost every town or village has at least a couple of those Farang-oriented bars with mostly young Isaan girls waiting for guys to hang out with them, buy them drinks and go home together in exchange for paying the bar fine and some pocket money.

By the way: Supply by far doesn’t meet demand in Koh Chang even in high season so it’s not unlikely that you are surrounded by three or four girls in these bars all giving their best to make you having a good time.

Beer Bars on Koh Chang

Koh Chang Beer Bars

White Sand Beach (Hat Sai Khao), the most developed beach on the island, has by far the highest concentration of these girl bars. Hat Kai Bae also has plenty of options and they even got a small bar strip calling it “Walking Street”. Look at the map below for the exact locations of those beer bar hubs. I have marked only the areas where there is a high concentration with at least ten or more beer bars.

As mentioned, almost every tiny village on Koh Chang’s west coast has a few girl bars and they are all kind of the same so it doesn’t really make sense to give you a list of “the best five beer bars on Koh Chang”. It doesn’t matter if they are called “Jungle Queen” or “Sabai Sabai Bar”, they are all kind of similar usually with a pool table, bar stools, lots of cute chicks and sometimes a live band.

Koh Chang Nightlife

Night Clubs on Koh Chang

Believe it or not, there is only one proper indoor nightclub on Koh Chang. It’s called The Bar (formerly known as One-Nightlub) and is located on White Sand Beach (see the map below). They advertise their parties all around the island, so it’s well visited by a hip and well dressed party folk at any night of the week. The cover charge is usually between 100 and 200 baht and it gets busy from around midnight till late. Check out their facebook page for the latest events.

Another nightlife hotspot is the backpacker mecca at Lonely Beach. You can compare it somewhat with Khaosan Road in Bangkok, parties here start in the late afternoon end end somewhere around dawn. Needless to say that a lot of local Thai girls with ordinary day jobs like hotel reception or spa head there to hook up with Farang guys after they finished work. Two of the most popular outdoor bars on Lonely Beach are Himmel Bar and Skandal Bar right opposite.

Apart from all these beer bars, night club and backpacker spots there are obviously countless of beachside restaurants that make great party spots at night too. Again most of the venues can be found on White Sand Beach, Hat Kai Bae and Lonely Beach.

You see the nightlife on Koh Chang has something for everyone. If you come as a couple you rather want to stick with the beautiful beachside bars and restaurants at White Sand Beach or Hat Kai Bae or the multi-culti parties on Lonely Beach. And if you are a single foreigner it doesn’t really matter where you have booked your hotel – you can find fun and accompaniment on almost every corner of the west coast.

    Hello. I would recommend an excellent massage parlor on Koh Chang where do Happy massage. His name is Maneerat Massage, addresses 21-62 Moo 4 Klong Prao. This is not a classic Happy massage as it might seem. Salon offers Full Body Tantra massage, which lasts 90 minutes and costs 800 THB. It is a combination of high-quality massage oil with a very pleasant and perfect massage genitals. Young masseuses engaged in this part of the body and has great attention during the massage you are able to touch her perfectly relax and entice. This is not just about chasing as in conventional massage parlors which offer Happy Ending Massage. It is a very refined way, which will lead to utter ecstasy like no one else. Last year I visited the salon 4x, 6x.Prostředí this is very nice, have a shower, air conditioning, everywhere it smells and plays relaxing music.

    You seem to advertise the bar girls a lot. I’ve spent many years on that island and spent hours talking with them especially the Cambodians. We all know what poverty does and desperation The men taking advantage of that should make most thinking people cringe somewhat . There is also a school for. Cambodian children at Klong Proa with one volunteer teacher. The environment is harsh and little supplies lunch is provided as the children are so poor . Maybe the fellas reading your post might like to help at this school instead of giving money to the bars. I think most would be humbled and truly have a wonderful day . Just saying .

    • Peter says:

      Yes, we wouldn’t want them making a living or, God forbid, even having a bit of fun every now and then now would we, Louisa?

    • In case you don’t know we can help by many ways ! Buying local products, paying the bargirls and buying supplies for school ! Why having to choose ?

      Dear Lousisa.
      There are three things, you forget about.
      The first is: thousands of men *afraid* to have sex with white women now. Why? Cause there are many cases of “rape” after several month or even years of sex case if white women complain about “rape” in case if she don’t like thay man anymore and want his money or just ruin his life. The second: to have a sexual aurosal both gender need to feel safe, free, and playful. It’s not possible to be inside your soul if you will sit and sigh papers every time before kiss or penetration with white girlfriend or wife. I don’t want to say much about radical feminist ogranisation, but this is about them mostly… All this horrible to men cases. So, if i don’t want to go to prison, if i know that porn and masturbation is realy bad practice for my mind (google about porn addiction), and i don’t want castration, what should i do?.. Third one: there are milions of girl who work in field and factories. From realy poor families. Why they are not selling bodies? Maybe the case not about povetry, but about personalities? P.s. I’m personaly preffer asian girlfriends, not prostitutes. And when I free from relationships – casual sex with white girls. Family? When I get my 40, not earlier.

      Of course a stupid comment from a “woman”, I mean old desperate with pu….
      I shag women and give money to charity and other NGO, is it a problem for you ?
      Asian women working in bars are just lazy and prefer this than working in a factory, so I guess that it’s not your problem AT ALL.

      Hi Louis

      I am glad that you have given this information here. I will visit that place

    One Club was demolished a few months ago as was Jungle Queen. Sabay Bar is now the nearest thing to a nightclub on the island.

    Getting ready to go back to KC again next week (trip number 5). I was looking at your latest email submission and stumbled across this post and thought I would chime in.
    The last time I was there was February 2015.

    Beer Bars:

    As pointed out, White Sand Beach has the largest concentration of working girls and bars, but I find most of them just a little too pushy. Most seem to have followed the isaan migration route. Not a lot of stunners or ones with talent. There is one bar that has quite an assortment of LBs.
    Bar fines and rates steeper than elsewhere on the Island.

    Khong Prau has a string of BBs along the main road, with one that hosts the LB entertainment. if you like the older or second string girls, this is your spot.

    Kai Bae has a small walking street at the end of town, well hidden but worth a trip. Seems to be a fair number of Cambodian girls working as will as more local flavor from Trat. This is My fav place as the girls are not pushy, laid back and can joke and play. A nice strip to just laugh and have a good time even if you choose not to go for take-out. Bar fines are less expensive and usually rates can be negotiated towards midnight.

    Lonely Beach has one BB with entertainment. last year the one bar hosted LBs and cold beer. Last trip it was closed and a new venue opened up with mixed talent. Again not pushy. Good place to play pool if you are alone.

    Lonely Beach is much better to intercept single European and Chinese girls on the prowl to make their travel experience complete. There is a narrow walking street with a mix of live music, disco and reggae. I like to stay in Lonely Beach the best as the mix of night life is never dull. When I am in Lonely beach I stay at the Little Eden, as the bungalows are large, the beer in the main lounging area is the coldest in KC. Best of all it is near the nightlife epicenter.

    By the way, the premier night club/ disco in White Sand Beach is called the Sabai Bar. Great lights and good music for grooving. Lots of chicks but very few alone, so best to import.

    I will be there for 2 weeks. if anything has substantially changed I will provide an update. Keep up the good work, and as always I look forward to your next post.
