If you have not tasted the local food while in Koh Samui, you have probably not experienced the island on its entirety. Look for a Samui resort that allows you to glean the best out of the city such as Anantara Bophut Koh Samui known to be a Samui hotel that excels in providing its guests with the ultimate regional experience. The island being a blooming tourist attraction, the variety of restaurants and dining options available for visitors is not really astounding. Food plays an important role in Thai culture and society and therefore, it is quite easy to find every kind of cuisine ranging from traditional Thai food to international gastronomic delights here.
A must try however would be the traditional Thai food served up here. From good old street food, Thai fine dining to 5 star restaurants, Thai food is served up in every manner available, suited for all kinds of visitors. However, if authentic bohemian Thai food is what you are after, then the many street side restaurants Koh Samui offers is your ultimate dining option.
