Samui Festival starts today, 7 September 2017

Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

Everybody wants to be famous for something... why not the biggest free food buffet ?

Samui Festival 2017 sets Guinness World Record for largest buffet
World's largest buffet stretches some 2.5 kilometres along Chaweng Beach on Samui
The Tourism Authority of Thailand together with Koh Samui’s public and private sector have successfully set a new Guinness World Record for the Largest Buffet during the Samui Festival 2017.

The 2.5-kilometre-long beach buffet, free and open to the public, was arranged on Chaweng Beach as part of the five-day festival, which ran from 7-11 September to celebrate the 120th anniversary of the island’s founding in 1897.

A variety of Thai dishes were prepared by chefs from all over Thailand as the highlight of the world’s largest buffet on Chaweng Beach, Koh Samui. The activity is in line with the TAT’s gastronomy tourism efforts by promoting Thai food and the country’s culinary potential on a global stage.
