Chaweng Beach is the major beach on Ko Samui and one that has developed tremendously since the early 1990s.
Just 20 years ago the beach was home to just a sprinkle of wooden bungalows but now the place is swamped with hotels, Italian pizzerias, Irish pubs, and even go-go bars. Samui’s night life is becoming legendary but unfortunately not always attracting the best standard of tourist. Chaweng’s once ‘hippie’-only backpackers have given way to a lot of “lager louts”. Chaweng is the place for a rowdy reckless party scene.
