of the local people relaxing and eating after work. You really won’t be disappointed with your experience the food will be hot, tasty and very affordable.
One thing you’ll notice while you’re here is the Seafood, Koh Samui is an ideal place to eat fresh, tasty fish, the choice is amazing and the price will also be pleasing to your pocket as well. You will see many of the restaurants display there various choices of fish on ice for you to look at and choose.
When you decide which fish you want, to make sure its fresh you need to look at the fishes eyes, they should be bright, not cloudy. Also a good sign of freshness is the fish should be firm to the touch, remember it’s your choice to buy so don’t hesitate to smell it before you choose it.
