Shopping in Koh Samui
As a tourist hotspot, Koh Samui is known for its unique shopping experience. It’s a place where the shopping changes with the time of day and the season. Most all year long, you can find beachwear being sold there, since it is a tropical island, but you will also find an array of seasonal foods and clothing that make for interesting shopping no matter when you come to visit.
The nighttime shopping is significantly different than daytime, with many shops appearing along Meanam Walking Street and other locations that cater to tourists. On these streets, impromptu shops set up selling pirated goods, cocktails, local dishes, jewelry and more.
