Lots of people are accustomed to paying large sums of cash to eat delicious food. While this is a reality in many parts of the world, especially within developed nations, it doesn’t necessarily hold true in other places, especially in Thailand.

Koh Samui isn’t just home to breath-taking sunsets, warm weather, luxury accommodations, and a range of trendy clubs, the tropical paradise is also renowned for its exotic cuisine that have tourists drooling over their plates.

Not only is the food to die for here, but it also costs a reasonable to affordable price, depending on where a vacationer eats. For those looking to pinch pennies – so they may perhaps use their cash for traveling around the island or classy hotel rooms – there are a number of options that they will be able to choose from without having to dip into their savings.

Thai restaurants, which specialize in selling local fresh food, are great options for those with restricted budgets. Tourists will be pleased to find a range of these joints along Chaweng Beach, wherein dishes start as low as 50 THB.

However, keep in mind that these businesses are used to seeing their customers incapable of handling the level of spice they incorporate into most dishes, so it may be necessary for guests to inform their waiters how spicy they want their meals.

Other venues to grab an affordable mouth-watering meal at include Thai temple fairs or markets. Here, visitors can enjoy a tasty piece of chicken with sticky rice and sweet chili sauce for 25 THB.

The walking market, which passes through Bophut Fisherman’s village every Friday and Meanam on Thursdays, is also an excellent source of cheap food. Some of the island’s best stalls can be found at these venues, as the food is always delicious and tagged at low prices.

Lastly, Samui have eat-all-you-can BBQ buffets – these hotpot restaurants are found throughout the entire island, and costs about 109 THB per head. Upon sitting down at any table, the standard operating procedure observed by most of these restaurants is to serve a small piece of BBQ chicken or beef onto a flame.

Unlimited vegetables, meats and fish for barbequing can be found at the buffet area. In addition, there’s also another area that serves limitless spring rolls, French fries, fried rice, and other goodies to eat.
