The best places to go shopping in Maenam are quite laidback compared to many Koh Samui neighbourhoods. The 5-km-long beach is great for those looking for a peaceful tropical holiday. Shopping-wise, Maenam does not play in the same league as Chaweng, the prime retail destination in Koh Samui.
You can find a good range of shopping options at the weekly Maenam Walking Street, an outdoor market that takes place on 2 main roads leading to the pier. There are also several shops dedicated to handcrafted souvenirs, eco-friendly furnishings, and finely crafted jewellery.
