LOL, does it empty out after New Year? No way!

The busiest times are normally just before or just after full moon, when the influx to or from Phangans infamous Full Moon Party.

We have been there in December, January, February and March, and central Chaweng around the Solo Bar / Soi Green Mango is always busy!

We normally enjoy the ladyboy show at Starz - the best one in town - good family fun, then head to Soi Green Mango and shoot pool at one of the bars in the smaller Sois.

Have fun!

Thanks for the help guys! Also, Is it overrun with Brits there or is there a mix of nationalities? A lot of my friends who have been before (i am a complete newbie) say its changed so much in the past 5 years. Either way im SO excited.

Ark Bar is literally on the beach! Very popular with the Eurotrash, loud speakers, fire shows and dozens on staff running round to keep you well lubricated.

Solo bar is more of trendy bar come nightclub, very westernised and expensive compared to most places in Thailand but cheaper than UK.

Sound Club and Green Mango are typical nightclubs like you find in European resorts and seem to run on alternate nights. Reggae bar has a live band but when I've been it wasn't very busy and didn't play reggae music either.

Depending on how long you are going for you could spend a few nights on Koh Phangan (Haad Rin Beach) where there is plenty of nightlife too.
