Where to Eat in Bang Tao

Where to Eat in Bang Tao
There are a lot of upmarket and luxury hotels located around Bang Tao, creating a distinctive yet low-key nightlife. The Laguna – a complex of six upmarket hotels linked by a land and water shuttle service – is fully self-contained with restaurants, bars, entertainment and leisure activities both by day and night. It's all there. If you feel the need to get a more local view, there are lots of bars and small restaurants in the area that provide great food at very reasonable prices.
