Samui Wining & Dining
Double Delight

This month Samui celebrates both the Chinese New Year and St. Valentine’s Day.


1Don’t be alarmed. Nobody’s trying to kill you! When you hear loud explosions going off as dawn rises on the 10th of February, it’s not the start of World War III. It’s merely the (relatively) large Chinese contingent of the local Samui population heralding in their New Year – The Year of the Snake. Firecrackers, lion dancing and lots and lots of Chinese food make it an exciting festive occasion not to be missed – and with all the noise and commotion going on, it would be hard to!

    And then on the 14th we have St. Valentine’s Day. A much quieter event but certainly not less passionate, it, too, seems to revolve around food these days as couples head for romantic restaurants in which to share an intimate meal. And on Samui there’s certainly no lack of beautiful places in all price ranges where the candles will be illuminating loved ones across some of the finest food you’ll ever taste. Just make sure to reserve a table in advance, as everybody wants that ‘special’ Valentine’s set-up on the beach or in the prime location.

But should you miss out on one or the other or even both occasions, not to worry. Every day on Samui is a special day on which to find either exciting eateries offering all-singing all-dancing cabaret shows with fabulous buffets, or intimate romantic restaurants providing world class gourmet cuisine in outstanding locations.

       Bon appétit.
