Lamai Night Plaza in Koh Samui

Shopping at the Lamai Night Bazaar

Lamai Night Plaza in Koh Samui is a mini-version of Bangkok's Patpong night market. In the centre of town, the market features plenty of pirated goods, copied clothes, trashy 'Swiss' army knives, and the usual displays of flip-flops. It's a fun place to get your shopping in.

Even so, after a stroll up and down the lines of stands, it becomes plain that there are also local goods on sale at the night bazaar. The key to shopping at a night market such as this is to browse hard and bargain hard. You might score a great buy at Lamai Night Market to furnish your living room back home.

Lamai Night Plaza highlights

This night bazaar is not as noisy as Chaweng’s version and it even has a food centre, café and a pub to the side. Take your time and remember to smile throughout transactions and bartering. Do not pay the original asking price; you’re expected to bargain.

You can buy locally made fans, wooden elephants in varying sizes from the mainland, ever-useful sarongs, attractive purses, bags, belts, witty (and not so witty) T-shirts, rolling luggage, striking and colourful lamps, bed covers, Buddha images, electronics goods, and finally, knockoff goods in the shape of Rolex, Breitling and Cartier watches.
