Visitors this month might get very wet on Thai New Year’s Day, but the food remains as excellent as ever.While spring may be in the air in Europe, here on Samui it's a time of sizzling afternoons, the brightest sunshine of the year and nights that seem endlessly languid. But the hot weather is also a time when the year comes to an end, and the Thais celebrate their own New Year’s Day. It’s on April 13th, and if you're here you'll experience a day-long water fight that involves the entire country. Yes, you read that right! The whole nation basically turns out armed with buckets of water, hoses, and super soakers to participate in the giant fight. It’s fun and virtually impossible to avoid. Everybody agrees that the combination of heat and refreshing water makes for a wonderful occasion. It’s certainly a good time to be visiting the island.

But celebrations aside, and no matter what season you decide on for your visit, you’ll realize how fortunate you are to be here when you see the food that’s available. Samui isn’t afraid to proclaim itself a culinary destination with literally thousands of restaurants catering to all different tastes. From road-side eateries to temples of fine dining, Samui has some tasty surprises for all who come to its shores. What’s just as amazing is that virtually every foodstuff in the world can now be found here.

When it comes to food, whether you live on Samui or are just visiting, you’re spoiled for choice. The island’s amazing food is all yours to enjoy, and we hope in these pages to show you just a few of the many possibilities that await you.
