Shopping in Koh Samui is diverse, with hundreds of bargains to be found around the island. While almost every corner of the island has a store worth visiting, the main shopping sites are Chaweng, Lamai and Nathon. Chaweng offers the most choice and Lamai has a nice range of quirky little stores, but Nathon usually has the cheapest deals.

The shopping scene in Thailand is famous for the wide variety of products to be found at markets and local, independent stores. Koh Samui is no exception. Such products can generally be found in the smaller local markets. Most department stores offer international, brand name products and have fixed prices, but you can bargain almost everywhere else. A rule of thumb is to just keep it polite and friendly to reach a price everyone is happy with.
