    Best Places to Shop in Chaweng

    Chaweng is the place that has the best shopping options in the whole of Samui Island. Of course, other popular Samui resort towns – such as Bophut and Lamai – also have engaging stores but Chaweng is the only place that hosts large shopping malls and supermarkets in addition to a bustling weekly Walking Street (street market) plus a large number of small stand-alone boutiques at which visitors can find a wide range of clothing, cosmetics and souvenirs.

    Our Top 10 Shopping in Chaweng features the most renowned boutiques and shops, selected for the quality of the items they sell or for their size and prominence. From budget shopping at the Chaweng Walking Street to high-end spending in exclusive brand-name boutiques, there’s something for everyone on our list.

    It’s hard to imagine shoppers in the West sipping on cocktails while out shopping but at Chaweng Walking Street Market you can do just that, and for very little money, too. Chaweng Walking Street is a riot of colours, sounds and scents. This is where you can haggle for items such as T-shirts, sunglasses, knockoff watches, beach dresses, lamps, sexy cutoff jeans; copied Ralph Laurent polo shirts, flip-flops, bags of all shapes and sizes, carved wooden souvenirs, kids’ clothing and cosmetics.

    It’s also a riot of tastes, with countless food stands selling grilled chicken, squid, delicious sweet boiled chicken, sticky rice, and smoothies. Everyone seems to be in good humour here and the intense touting of Chaweng’s main shopping street may as well be on another planet. Read More...

    Chandra is an exotic boutique retailing unique clothing and shoes, as well as handbags and fashion accessories. It is certainly a class above the naughty T-shirt and fake sunglasses brigade that surrounds it. The boutique features funky, exotic fashion sourced from around Asia, and exclusive designs from Bali.

    Barak and Dana, the owners and main designers of the items for sale at Chandra are free-thinkers, rejecting conformity. Their creations represent this frame of mind, with a focus on elegance and stylishness. They mostly use natural textiles such as cotton, linen and silk because of their suitability in the tropics. All sizes are available at Chandra from petit Asian fits to tall westerner capaciousness.

    • Opening Hours: 10:00 – 22:00
    • Location: Two branches – on the Beach Road near McDonald's and a second branch opposite Via Vai Italian Restaurant
