One part of the Thai experience we’ll never tire of is its flavors. In Ao Nang there is a whole range of touristy restaurants from Egyptian to Italian and Indian cuisine but away from the main crowded streets some fresh, tasty street food awaits. The area just outside Ao Nang (across from the tourist police office) has a row of vendors with a diverse mix – you could have a 5-course meal if you so desire. BBQ chicken and whole fish, salads, roti (pancakes), juice “shakes”, coconut desserts – and that’s just what we ate! There’s so much more.
