Lamai Centre is a small plaza-like shopping precinct in the heart of Lamai (hence the name), opposite the Golden Elephant restaurant. With a modest selection of high-quality shops and cafés, it is worth a visit for its unique wares and peaceful atmosphere.
The plaza is really little more than a short indent on one side of the main road running through Lamai, which goes back about 60m. However, that indent is lined with boutique stores and has a pleasant fountain and pond in the middle, giving it a look and feel halfway between Thai and European.
The shops available at Lamai Centre include a travel agent, a tattoo and body piercing shop, a massage parlour, a second-hand book shop a lamp shop and a clothing store. This, plus an ice cream parlour, make it a very tourist-oriented place to shop in Lamai
