The dining scene supplemented by refined eateries and roadside Thai cafes shouldn’t go unnoticed when it comes to Koh Samui food excursions.

By the beach

The roads close to the beaches are lined with restaurants: international and Thai dishes offered by these places are tempting to tourists. The most famous seaside destination in terms of food is Bophut.

Street food

Thailand is known for its yummy street food, and Koh Samui upholds that remark. Thai noodle soup is an all-time favourite loved by both locals and tourists. The famous Thai papaya salad is another element of Koh Samui street food culture.
