The best things to see and do in Koh Chang

Koh Chang Nightlife

When the sun sets, the beaches come alive with music, bars, dancing, etc.

If you’re looking for a fun night out on Koh Chang, White Sand Beach and Lonely Beach are probably the best places to go to.  These areas have a variety of beach bars and pubs.  Most of them have music, and a couple on the beach have fire shows.  Pool tables can be found at most bars.  On the main road at the south end of White Sand Beach, at the bottom of the hill, there is a group of bars known as “Little Pattaya” that have even more friendly girls.  But don’t look for a soapy massage on Koh Chang, you won’t find one.
