Kai Bae Beach nightlife is by no means the hub of Koh Chang, but it does have a couple of good spots in which to kick back, play some pool, sup a cocktail and maybe even strut your stuff, with our favourites below.
Kai Bae Beach Nightlife – North
At the northern end, there are a cluster of beer bars on what is called Walking Street, starting with Sky Bar on the top corner. Sir Henry Morgan Pirates Pub sits at the other end, a curious wooden building over 2 storeys, complete with faux lighthouse. If you are up that end, it’s worth a try and the Russian tour groups, its main clientele, certainly get the jaunt jumping as the evenings draw on.
Along the road opposite Chang Park Resort, you’ll find other bars, with some screening the football, but business is obviously not too brisk as they they tend to come and go with the wind. That said, Boobz has now been standing firm for a few years.
Kai Bae Beach Nightlife – South
As you continue down the main street, you will find more beer bars scattered here and there, with the small bar at the front of M & M Guesthouse a popular haunt. Wine Gallery also draws a decent crowd but for the two main Kai Bae bars, look now further than Filou and Mojito Lounge at the southern end. Both offer happy hours, themed nights or parties and if you drop in on either, you’ll get a decent night out.
Nang Nual Resort has a nightly cabaret show hosted by the katoeys (lady boys), it’s next door to Coral Resort down by the sea and Sea Breeze has some live music at the southern end.
Kai Bae Beach Nightlife – Other Bars
The beach does not go in for bars and restaurants as the other areas do, but the best sundowner is at Porn’s where watching the light change on the offshore islands can be very special indeed. There’s also a very keenly priced happy hour at The Chill.
