The island has a vibrant scene and is concentrated in Chaweng Beach. Therefore, this area attracts a mixed audience and you'll find several very gay friendly places.
Officially there are 3 gay bars on the island: you have the Alpha Gay Resort bar, the K-Club bar and the Pride Samui bar. These last 2 bars are on the same street almost opposite each other.
The week we spent in Ko Samui we went to Samui Pride bar every night. This is where we always came after dinner. It's the ideal place to be with friends or make new ones, you have a relaxed terrace, a snooker table, a giant jange, all accompanied by excellent drinks and a super relaxed staff.

Full Moon Party

Is on the neighboring island of Koh Phangan and you easily have several boats coming and going all night. This is the party for those who really like to party! CRAZY! It's one of those things you have to do at least once in your life.

There are people who go on purpose from all over the world to the party. It's held when there's a full moon, it has a crowd of people dressed or not in fluorescent colors, body painting, lots of music washed down with a lot of alcohol all by the water on the beach.

Difficult to explain what it feels like there! You really have to go... The music plays at high power with sounds ranging from techno, electronics or reggae. In addition to music and dancing along the beach, there are games with fire, light and fire shows and many (many) cocktail buckets. The party takes place every month of the year, if it is a public holiday it takes place the day before or after. It's a world famous party with all its pros and cons but if you can, please go and you'll never forget this night.
