Koh Tao Nightlife
Throughout the years Koh Tao has established itself as an island with a happening nightlife.
The parties are nowhere comparable to the massive full moon parties in Koh Phangan, however, the music, the dancing, and the buckets are passed around just the same. Every evening the regular party hotspots are pumping out music and entertainment to local divemaster trainees and travellers. There are special events held every month with organized parties, live music, and theme nights in different bars. There are even weekly organized pub crawls which are a great way to meet new people and explore the different bars and clubs. The New Year always offers a 3-4 day house/trance party on the hills of Koh Tao, and many full moon party leftovers come and continue their celebration here.
If large crowds and loud music isn't your scene, Koh Tao has several bars with a more relaxed vibe. There are bars with a view, remote beach bars, and others where everybody knows your name. Most locations serve both local and international alcohol. Be aware that in a hot climate the risk for dehydration is quite high, and combined with alcohol may result in a nasty hangover. Drink plenty of water, don't drive drunk, and enjoy the party. See you for a bucket!
