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.
