Koh Samui island of Surat Thani Province, or often, simply Samui as it is referred to by locals, is an island off the east coast of the Kra Isthmus in Thailand, close to the mainland Surat Thani town. It is Thailand’s third-largest island, with an area of 228.7 km2 and a population of over 50,000 (2008). It is rich with natural resources, white sandy beaches, coral reefs and coconut trees.

Koh Samui Nightlife Overview
90% of all Thai-Farang sex on Koh Samui is happening on the beach towns on the eastern side of the island, especially Hat Chaweng and Hat Lamai (Hat is the Thai word for beach). Excuse me, of course I mean 90% of the nightlife spots on Samui are found on the east coast. There is literally nothing to monger on the western and southern coast. Only if you are reaching the island by ferry you are going to see the west coast as the ferry terminal is located there. It takes about 45 minutes to one hour to cross the island from west to east by motorcycle.If you are a single male traveller looking for fun and pleasure with local Thai girls (well, about 60-70% of all hookers on Samui actually come from Isaan) then make sure you book your hotel on Chaweng Beach. Only if you are travelling with your girlfriend and aren’t planning a naughty threesome, you may choose instead the more relaxing Lamai Beach which is a few kilometres south of Chaweng and a 20 minutes ride by motorcycle. Yes, there are also plenty of beer bars and massage salons (happy ending ones) but not nearly as many and I also found the quality of girls in Chaweng is so much better than in Lamai. The young and beautiful simply go where the money, big hotels and busy nightclubs are.
There are also some hotels on the southern and northern coast, such as Bophut Beach, Maenam Beach and Lipa Noi Beach, but again: Those places are better for reading books all day long and a quiet seafood dinner at night. Yes there is the odd bar or massage salon, but it’s nothing compared to Chaweng and Lamai.
Almost ready to go into the various types of nightlife on Samui, but just one more thing I noticed here: The girls are super attentive and yelling at you louder and with more enthusiasm than pretty much anywhere else in Thailand. Even when you drive past a massage salon they try to get your attention. In Pattaya, they wouldn’t bother and only look up from their phones when you are walking past the store, but here the girls seem more hungry.
