Koh Phangan shopping options include some small boutique shops selling beachwear and fashion jewellery, but it can't really be considered a famous shopping destination. One thing is for sure though, Koh Phangan is a lot cheaper than Samui when it comes to shopping. In the seaside towns of Thongsala and Haad Rin, you’ll find craft shops, jewellery and accessory outlets, and hammock shops.
Haad Rin shops and stalls sport lots of overpriced fluorescent Full Moon Party beachwear. Smaller beaches, such as Thong Nai Pan, have typical seaside outlets selling beach balls, flippers and masks. Handicraft shops in Koh Phangan dot most of the main routes and are worth stopping at as their one-off products deserve attention.
