Lamai doesn't have the same range of bars or quality as nearby Chaweng, but it's a much more pleasant place for a drink for those who want more peace. There are far fewer girlie bars as well, and prices are a little lower, but overall, the bars have less character.

Feature: Hat Lamai's Lady Boxing bars

Every Saturday night around dinner hours it's lady boxing time at Lamai's thus named 'Lady Boxing' bars, when two bar girls duke it out in the ring after weeks of training. The rest of the week the girls writhe and dance at these central open-air bars, which is particularly depressing when there are no clients.
