Koh Tao Bars

The bar scene in Ko Tao is fun and very down to earth. The bars are generally a little more chilled, and far less crowded than the full moon parties on the nearby island of Koh Phangan, but with a bucket of Thai whiskey being passed around the dance floor on the beach, you will easily find yourself lost in a party with friends that will continue through to the early morning.

Dancing on the beach

Professional DJ's come from all over the world to play music. Fire jugglers often perform on the beaches. Each night of the week will find a different party. Look out for flyers at shops and taxis. Most of the bigger clubs have dance floors on the beach, a couple up in the mountains.

There are also plenty of more relaxed, chilled little bars along the beaches in which to warm up for the parties or just unwind and get into the music.

Some places show live sports, some have pool tables and now & then places with daily changing movie programs invite you to come in and enjoy. Thai boxing is performed at irregular times,- check for flyers on the street. Don't miss it!

For the more low-key clientele there are also a few pub-like venues and cocktail lounges with chilled tunes. Some show live sports, some have pool tables or darts and you will easily find an expat to join a game of Backgammon.

Most restaurants have a daily changing movie program, advertised on white boards at the entrance.

Thai Boxing is performed frequently, there are flyers and quite audible announcements from cars informing about date and place. You can even participate, if you dare.
Look out for new places which are opening all the time.
