Best beach to stay at in bungalow


After suggestions of the best beach to stay on in a bungalow and close enough to some sort of entertainment .. Not completely isolated or any crazy nightlife .. Around $50 a night and more then likely will be on my own .. So somewhere safe as well .. Thanks

hi there

Lamai or chaweng area going to suit you then, both offer some nightlife after-hours

personally i think thailand is quite a safe country in general

there are some hotels on the chaweng beach road that offer accommodation for the 1500 baht range

you will get more posts shortly from others

and theres also IBED in lamai ,might be worth a try

If you can find something in South Chaweng that would be my choice as a solo (presumably female) traveller. There's plenty going on with lots of restaurants and bars etc but it's far enough from crazy Central Chaweng with it's full on nightlife, but if you want to get there you can walk it in 20 minutes along a busy (lots of shops and restaurants) road or grab a songthaew. Not sure what accommodation is on offer in that price range in South Chaweng, but SweetPea should be able to assist in that department.

Have a look at Kings Garden Resort in central Chaweng, next door to Chaba Samui. It's been around for a very long time and has a few different types small to large, fan only and aircon. They have a kitchen/rest that serves breakfast & lunch, massage huts o the beach etc. There is no pool but the beach out the front is lovely. Very centrally located to everything.
