Elephant Walk Koh Samui

Small Night Market in Fisherman’s Village

Elephant Walk Koh Samui is a small night market which opens every night in Fisherman’s Village. Located just a short walk (across the road) from the Happy Elephant Restaurant, it is a fun and quirky shopping experience in Bophut and a good place to find some interesting souvenirs.

The titular walk is not a particularly long one as this little shopping precinct stretches only about 30 metres back from Bophut Beach Road. Most of that space is a gravelled central courtyard with cute elephant statues painted as comic book characters, as well as seating for dining and relaxing and small tables made from empty oil drums painted with national flags.

Shopping along Elephant Walk

The shops are located around the edge of Elephant Walk Koh Samui and are quite an eclectic mix of small local boutiques. You can find unique clothing designs, spa products, souvenirs and, because it wouldn’t be a proper Thai market without them, copied DVDs, beer cosies and Singha Beer singlets. Prices are naturally a little higher than you would find on a real local market but are still competitive for such interesting items.

Opening times vary and, despite being primarily a night market, some of the stores are open during the day. There are restaurants near the back of the walk that specialise in Issan-style Thai cuisine and have a relaxed, funky style, continuing the oil drum theme with brightly-coloured examples forming unique tables, chairs and sofas.

Similar seating can be found at the popular roadside bar at the front of the market, where you can enjoy great cocktails from 5pm to 10pm.
