Lamai Beach Shopping

What to Buy and Where to Shop in Lamai

Lamai's shopping scene is fairly centralised with most places a stroll away from each other and based almost uniquely on the popular resort town’s main street. Besides the usual cheap souvenir and beachwear stores, Lamai shopping scene hosts a great choice of small boutiques specialised in quality handcrafted products from lamps to jewellery to clothing, making it an attractive shopping destination.

In the recent years, Lamai has seen its shopping scene expand by the addition of a weekly Walking Street (on Sundays), another cool opportunity to find cool gifts to bring back home. As always, have a good look around before you purchase goods and compare prices and quality – there's no hurry!

Lamai Walking Street

Lately, the Walking Street phenomenon has spread like wildfire throughout southern Thailand’s popular resort towns. In Koh Samui, all major destinations – Chaweng and Bophut - hold this fun weekly market-like fair which attracts an ever growing number of visitors. Lamai Walking Street (aka Lamai Jai Dee Walking Street, meaning Lamai ‘Kind-Hearted Walking Street’) is held every Sunday on Lamai Beach Road in between the fresh market and the bridge in the northeastern part of the town.

For this occasion, the road is closed off to traffic and is full of stalls selling clothes, handicrafts and local street food. The items for sale come at affordable prices which make them a good opportunity as souvenirs and little presents to bring back home for friends and family, but as in most southern Thai walking streets, the highlight is the outstanding choices of delicious food to be sampled here from grilled corn to pad thai to kebabs to pizza to barbecued seafood to cocktails and more. Strolling along Lamai Walking Street is definitely a great way to spend a Sunday evening in a welcoming and busy local atmosphere.

  • Opening Hours: Sunday from 4.30pm to 10pm
  • Location: Haad Lamai Rd, Maret, Koh Samui, Surat Thani 84310, Thailand

Nearby Lamai

Hin Ta Hin Yai Rocks

Next to the famous grandmother and grandfather rocks in southern Lamai are a group of stalls selling a range of goods. The atmosphere here is great fun, with a real 'by the seaside' feeling to it. These stalls are one of the best places to pick up traditional coconut wood carvings and shell ornaments. Try not to buy the coral or larger shells as this encourages reef damage and bringing coral into your home country can land you in hot water. Try the local Thai caramel and coconut sweet desserts as well they are absolutely delicious and a great gift for friends back home.

  • Opening Hours: Daily from 9am to 6pm
  • Location: Moo 3, Lamai, Koh Samui, Surat Thani 84310, Thailand
