Bang Rak is not short of dinning options. British expat owned pubs and café’s with traditional English fare can be found up and down the main strip. Along with many great little Thai retaurants, road-side café’s and food stands, with delicious authentic Thai food, cheaper than you’ll find in other tourist areas.
Not noticable from the main road, the beach front has a great variety of bars and restaurants, you'll find a couple of Samui's best restaurants here with both Western and Thai menus.
You’ll also notice a fair number of Go-Go bars along the central part of the main road. Nightlife here is not as much about banging music, it’s more about enjoying a drink with friends in a lively bars.
As per usual your never to far from a 7-11, pharmacy or tour agency and ATM’s are present right along the high street.
