    Great time at Thai Experience. Drinks were flowing and food was delicious. Was great meeting and talking with other travellers as well. Definitely recommend if you are staying at a resort as a way to get out and meet new people on your trip

    Every first time Thailand visitor in Koh Samui must go for the Thai Experience. Hosted by the chatty Claire, you can promise yourself an evening of fun, a whirlwind tour of Thai culture and some great food. It is a vegetarian friendly experience. Although a little pricey, it is a perfect way to spend an evening and have dinner for a group of friends or family.

    I was really hesitant to go to a dinner with a bunch of strangers, but got talked into it and so glad I went. Great conversation with lots of cool people from around the world. The staff is awesome and go out of their way to make sure you're having a good time and that your glass is always topped off. The food was really great and they're very careful if you have any dietary restrictions. Would highly recommend going if you're in Koh Samui and have the chance.
