2. Think Club

Despite the name, Think Club is not a vibrant nightclub, but a simple beachfront bar occupying two floors. It might be challenging to climb to the upper level as the ladder leading there is quite steep, but the incredible views from the bamboo platform are well worth the extra effort. As for drinks, the bar serves a fair range of local beers and some international spirits, but nothing too sophisticated or overpriced for that matter.
