Islands close to Pattaya, current pulse


Derrick Longham
 Share

Recommended Posts

Wanted to see if anyone had been to the Islands near Pattaya recently such as Koh Samet, Koh Larn, Koh Phua, Koh Chang, etc.  

Do they currently have a pulse at night time and what type of scene is it for clubs,  pubs,  and beer bar place where you can grab a ST or LT. Any areas with GCs or Soi Six style entertainment?

For pubs and clubs do they have late closing times and i.e. somewhere to play pool to the early hours ehile watching football.

Girl side are they more BYO types of locations or is there the odd gold nugget out and about at night?

Foreign or local bangkok style weekenders, backpackers for non P4P options available too?

Lots of questions but thinking of breaking up the Pattaya trip with some sand and sun but don't want to do it chaste and Phuket doesn't quite do it for me anymore.

Any recent experience post this recent fucked up COVID period would be appreciated. 

Thankyou

I've only been to the first two. There is ZERO nightlife, at least in terms of lively bars, clubs, P4P etc. I can't imagine the other islands are any different. They must all be fairly quiet at the moment too, what with no Chinese tour groups taking over the Bali Hai pier?

Experts warn that a laptop can seriously damage your sperm....

Although in my experience, not as much as sperm can damage your laptop!

koh chang has an "ok" nightlife (aka beer bars). well, actually it had a great nightlife with wild parties until the early morning at lonely beach, but i don't think there's much action there. but there are beer bar areas at white sands and further south.

girls are certainly available, but don't expect any 21 year old stunners... (unless you get very very lucky). 

there are a few recent reports about koh chang, just use the search.

Was at Koh Larn last week and BYO.  The bar area around Xanadu was totally empty.  I don't know about the other side of the island.

Thankyou the lack of Chinese is a plus I guess could you the perfect 1 or 2 night escape

Thankyou, have been to Ko Chang years past and agree on Lonely beach it was definitely fun at night just jard to get to if youbwere staying at the other end of the island. Good to hear the beer bars haven't disappeared as it gives a bit of an option. 

Ko Chang is nice it's just a long trip getting there especially with a hangover. May prove to be the longer term option though.

Thankyou, even though they were empty were the bars open at night I.e. if there was a late game on do you reckon they'd stay open?

No, the lights weren't even turned on.  The whole bar area next to the hotel was deserted.  The only activity was at the hotel restaurant and the few people who were there were couples or families.  Didn't see any single women.

Not an island, but Hua Hin might be worth a try. Some of Soi Bintabaht's bars have closed, but the new Wonderland beer bar complex on Soi 94 is open and there's always Thai Friendly.

A little further away but Koh Samui, Koh Phanang and Koh Tao are pretty good right now.

Lots of hottie foreign backpackers and local Thai women on the prowl.

Club/bar scene is pretty decent but nothing compared to Pattaya or Bkk.

Much more relaxed easy going vibe.

Just back from a couple nights on Samed, it’s pretty busy but it’s very family friendly, our hotel was crowded and nearby restaurants busy enough. 
As for nightlife, well first night we were in a bar of a friend of a friend in god knows where and it was quiet, last night it was raining so didn’t get out too much, we stayed in mostly. 
Obviously it’s always best to take someone with you, if so I think you can have a good time there.

Love Samui and Pha Ngan these two have never disappointed and i like the club scene at Samui. Just a but of a pain to get to but there are plenty of flights just want to minimise the travel and transfers a bit.  Thankyou

Thankyou.  Sounds like the Samed I know I've never been there without company but then it's also nice at times not to have company.

They don't have the hidden oasis look of an island retreat, but they're fine to lay out and swim, plus some of the nicer hotels have lovely pools right on the beach. I guess it's a tradeoff considering you don't have to get on a plane or ferry and can get there from Bangkok in two to three hours.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
      30th of May - Lust soi 6 
      6th of June - Illuzion
      13th of June - (next bar we have open)

      I look forward to meeting people again.
