Barracuda

One of the most noticeable tenants of The Wharf — a 24,000-square-meter open-air mall opened in 2015 at the western end of Samui’s Bo Phut walking street — is Barracuda.

The stylish concrete and chrome restaurant sits close to the sand.
Run by German Ferdinand Dienst, it serves Mediterranean-influenced dishes using local ingredients — 80% of the seafood comes from the surrounding waters.
All its vegetables are locally and organically grown.

Barracuda’s concept is winningly simple: serve fresh, high quality product on a small menu that changes frequently, with service to match.

Most of the seafood at Barracuda comes from local waters.

Chez Francois

It’s rare to come across a restaurant that earns universal acclaim, but you’ll be hard-pressed to find anyone with a bad word to say about chef Francois Porte’s Chez Francois.
Guests enter on a street close to the Fisherman’s Village through a large, ornate door into a cozy space with black and white checkered floors, and a large wooden centerpiece table.
At the back is a small bar.
The menu changes daily, depending on what Porte finds at the market.
Reservations are a must.

Stacked

Stacked is on a mission to be one of Samui’s funkiest dining experiences. Front and center to that is our passion for putting out quality food & drink. Serving everything from gourmet seafood and fish, to chops and steaks, our specialty lies in the art of creating the perfect burger (we like to think of ourselves as ‘burger connoisseurs’!). Combine that with our extensive wine or cocktail list. Top it off with live music and the biggest sporting event of the evening. Stack it all together and there you have it – the recipe for enjoying Chaweng the Stacked way!
But Stacked is most famous for its burgers.
For those that feel up to it, the Stacked Burger Challenge consists of four burgers and eight strips of bacon in a black sesame seed bun served with double fries and double slaw.
It’s free to anyone who can finish the monster in 20 minutes, otherwise it costs 1,000 THB (around $28 US).

The Larder

Two local expats, Executive Chef Martin Selby and Food and Beverage Aficionado Damian Ahern, decided Samui was lacking a down to earth eatery with a warm and welcoming ambiance, that serves high quality and innovative food without the usual pretense.
“Our philosophy is to not rely on stunning views, fancy table settings or elaborate décor. Do not expect silver service…instead you will find high-end food, served in a provincial and approachable way.” says Martin.
Menu offerings include chicken breast and liver pate, Spanish chorizo and potato minestrone, and Serrano ham with soft-boiled quails eggs, glazed cauliflower and wild rocket.
Fine food, tropical vibe and cocktails to dream about.

Cafe 69

When he quit his job at one of the island’s five-star resorts, chef Vivian opened his own restaurant, the cheekily named Cafe 69.
The interior is as colorful as the owner, with glittering silver tablecloths, turquoise walls and an over sized 69-shaped ceiling light, casting its glow on diners.
The food, perhaps best summed up as Thai with a twist, is similarly inventive. Green curry pie with mango and fettuccine tom yum goong carbonara are two examples.
The restaurant is on the small side and can fill up quickly, so booking ahead is recommended.

Krua Chao Baan

A best of Koh Samui beachfront feast for locals and visitors, this restaurant is a well-kept secret among lovers of fresh local seafood.
The vast menu includes interesting southern delicacies like gaeng som, a popular local sour curry, as well as a full list of Thai favorites.
The red snapper with chili and mango salad is a treat, as are tiger prawns in tamarind sauce, if available.
Everything goes well with coconut juice straight from the tree.
Diners needn’t worry about stuffing their face — they can always work off the calories by going for a post-meal paddle in the restaurant’s kayaks, offered free of charge.

Think

It’s hard to miss this funky little cafe.
Not just because of its location — in the middle of the west coast, a few kilometers south of Koh Samui’s capital of Nathon — but because it’s made from recycled shipping containers, refitted and daubed in bold yellow, red, blue and orange.
The fence of colorfully painted old tires is also an attention getter.
Like many establishments in the southern Thai islands, Think has adopted a hippie-beachcomber, ramshackle decor.
The collection of chairs and tables set in the sand at its covered entrance is the best place to watch the sunset with a drink in hand.
Think cafe has a prime sunset-viewing position.

56

Fisherman’s Village is well known for being one of the most romantic places to dine in Koh Samui . One of the most romantic restaurants you can choose while you are there is 56 that can be found about half way up the strip.

The restaurant is run by German born Volker Lass who loves his location in the Fisherman’s Village. He says “The Fisherman’s village is a very   special place in Koh Samui where you will not find girlie bars, a lot of noise, Thai boxing cars or cab drivers after a fare, here people can enjoy peace and quiet, the romantic atmosphere, quiet strolls and uninterrupted conversations.”

56 was named after its house number in the street and has a intimate atmosphere, a comfortable bar area and stunning artworks that are available for sale. Chef Khun Nit provides guests to 56 with incredible dining pleasures from the East meets west Asian European menu.

The menu is available in English, French, Russian, German and Thai and features many irresistible choices that are all mederately priced. All of the ingredients are brought locally and prepared fresh daily.

Starfish & Coffee

With its warm Mediterranean decor and beach-side terrace in the heart of Bophut Fisherman’s Village, Starfish, as it’s known, is always abuzz with vacationers.
An eclectic, occasionally quirky menu of Thai and Western dishes complements the restaurant’s fresh daily seafood offerings, the latter displayed on ice out front and cooked fresh to your taste.
A distinct French influence means there’s a good wine selection and desirably dangerous desserts, such as the ever-popular mango and sticky rice.
Named after a Prince song, the restaurant opens at noon so no chance of eating its butterscotch clouds and tangerines for breakfast.

Air Bar

High on the west coast, at the pinnacle of the InterContinental Samui Baan Talin Ngam Resort, Air Bar is consistently rated as the best place in Samui to watch the sunset.
It consists of a large open deck and stylish square, back-lit bar that juts out over the hillside, flanked by an array of sofas and armchairs all facing out to the vast ocean view.
Getting there around 5 p.m. helps secure a front row seat.
The cocktail menu is excellent, created by Bangkok-based mixologist Joseph Boroski.

Discover Thailand with Thailand Discovery

The Top 10 Pattaya Thailand Attractions. Thailand’s famous beach resort town of Pattaya has developed a colorful reputation over the years. Located less than 200 km from Bangkok, it’s a convenient place to enjoy sun, sand and sea. The beach town has drawn tourists and ex-pats from all over the world ever since US soldiers “discovered” the once-sleepy getaway destination during the Vietnam War. Since then, Pattaya’s profile has steadily increased and it is now one of the most popular beach destinations in Southeast Asia.

After a spate of development in the 1970s, the city became known as a haven for sex tourism, though in recent years the government has made efforts to turn Pattaya into a family-friendly destination. Still, Pattaya remains more of an adult’s destination. If you are traveling with the family or are seeking a more subdued location, check out Jomtien Beach. The area is still touristy, but quieter than the bustling center of town.

1. Cartoon Network Amazone Waterpark Pattaya

The park is logically split into sections catering to smaller children and teens and fully-grown children with families of their own. Located on Sukhumvit Road about 20 minutes drive from Pattaya Beach, there are 10 entertainment zones, featuring characters such as Ben 10, The Powerpuff Girls, Gumball, Darwin and others from popular shows on Cartoon Network. There is enough to do to keep the whole family occupied for an entire day, including the Surfarena (a flowrider which recreates a perfect breaking wave for surfing) and Mega Wave (which simulates the more gentle waves of the nearby sea, only without the riptides, jellyfish and hidden rocks).

You’ll find several good restaurants in the area and get a taste of local life away from the tourist crowds in the heart of Pattaya. It’s best to take a group taxi, so make some new friends while lounging at the beach and make an outing of it together.

 Pattaya is slowly changing are there are far more family visitors than ever before, so there will be many more attractions to visit in the future.

Thailand Info Khao Ho or Ang Mi Thong Festival. This unique Karen festival is to help return wandering lost souls and to show more of the rich culture of these ancient people

Thailand Info Khao Ho or Ang Mi Thong Festival

Thailand Info Khao Ho or Ang Mi Thong Festival

When: held on the full moon day of the ninth lunar month (17th Sept 2016)

Where: Ratchaburi or Rat Buri Western Thailand.

Khao Ho or Ang Mi Thong Festival (ประเพณีกินข้าวห่อ หรือ อั๊งหมี่ทอง), is a spiritual festival of the Karen people living in this western province of the Kingdom. While The Karen of Thailand mostly live in the more remote mountainous areas due west of Chiang Mai in the Mae Hong Son Province, in Ratchaburi 1.1% of the population are members of what is coloqually termed as Hill Tribes, mostly Karen with most living near the border to neighbouring Myanmar

For the local Karen people this annual festival is a time to appease the demons, as they believe that the ninth lunar month is an ominous time when ghosts and evil entities hunt and eat “Klar”, the spirit of people.

The 37 spirits of each Karen

A hugely important Karen Animist belief is that everyone has thirty-seven klar (also known as ‘Khwan’ or spirits) living within them: thirty-six minor klar and one major klar. If one or more minor klar wander away from the body, the person may become sick, Klar are known to be quite fickle and some simple love to roam, which can result in the soul being unable to return to the body, because it gets lost or is caught by evil spirits.

It is also believed that if the major klar wanders away the person may become crazy. In either case to call the Klar back to the body a traditional healer will conduct a ‘Phook Khaen Riak Kwan Ceremony’, where the wandering klar is lured back with incantations, gifts of fruit, cooked rice and betel nut. After the ceremony, a red string is tied around the wrist of an adult, or the neck of a small child, to prevent the klar wandering away again, (it is said that if all thirty-seven klar leave, a person they will die).

Tying White String around the Wrist

The Khao Ho or Ang Mi Thong Festival has its roots in the ceremony known as Baci (Lao: ບາສີ; Thai: บายศรี-bai si) and su kwan (Lao: ສູ່ຂວັນ; Thai: สู่ขวัญ), meaning “calling of the soul”.

‘Baci’ is an  important ceremony practiced in Lao culture plus Northern and Isan Thai culture, and is considered aphi ritual (“religion of the Gods”), it is used to celebrate any number of important events and occasions, such as births and marriages, entering the monk-hood, departing or returning home, beginning a new year etc.

The ritual of the baci also involves tying strings around a person’s wrist, (normally white in colour) to preserve good luck, and can be seen almost everywhere in the Kingdom of Thailand.

Food at the event

Another difference in this local Karen festival is in the food that is offered, in this ceremony, people cook “khao ho” which is sticky rice molded and wrapped into a cone shape, which they then steam similar to khanom chan. The Khao Ho, once cooked is dipped in either honey or coconut.

What more to expect

The day is also the chance for guests and visitors to immerse themselves in Karen culture, with numerous performances in folk music and dance. There are also demonstrations in the traditional Karen pastimes; a race with a basket on ones back, an oily pole climbing competition, the game of tossing Saba seeds, plus of course your chance to try more traditional local delicacies such as Kaw Naw and see many local handicrafts.

While this festival is a uniquely Ratchaburi event, it is your chance to witness first hand some of the traditions of these ancient people, who like most of the Hill Tribes of Thailand were persecuted and driven from their home lands to eventually seek sanctuary in the Kingdom of Thailand

Not to be confused with the other festivals around the kingdom held to appease the ghosts that will walk once more among the living, they are The Festival of the Tenth Lunar Month, which is mainly a southern festival, the biggest held in Nakhon Si Thammarat, Southern Thailand. The Por Tor Festival or ‘Hungry Ghost Festival’, that is held annually across southern Thailand. The Tiggkrahad ritual is also is similar to the purely Thai event; Festival of Offerings to the Dead (Sart Day) วันสาทรไทย, which is held all over the Kingdom and the purely Mon festival, The Mon Floating Boat Festival, which is held in September in the same district.
