The best place to go after dinner in Thong Sala ensure a fun night out for those who prefer to stay in this small section of Koh Phangan. With a couple of British pubs with pool tables and several bars downtown, there's enough to keep punters busy and active once the sun goes down.

    Thong Sala’s after-dark scene has its allures. It's definitely more laidback than Haad Rin, Koh Phangan's epicentre of nightlife. However, there's a couple of clubs playing energising beats if you prefer dancing to lounging.

    What are the best things to do at night in Thong Sala?
