Koh Samui Shopping - with Wired Destinations
Koh Samui ATM Machines and Banks
Koh Samui shopping is made easy as ATM's can be seen all over Koh Samui Beaches, Koh Pha-Ngan and Koh Tao. Credit, debit and Visa electron cards are accepted. There are several banks on Koh Samui and Koh Pha-Ngan, as well as micro banks or currency exchange offices.
This is by far the most business oriented area for Koh Samui shopping. You can find all kinds of shops and outlets here. Skilled tailors and dressmakers, who can sew the perfect fit for a suit or dress of your choosing. Several sports shops, beauty boutiques, clothing and fashion outlets, photo shops and can be found. Gold, silver and jewelry shops as well as Thai traditional handicrafts and souvenirs like Thai silk, lacquer ware, paintings and more are present. The all-pervading 7-Eleven and Family Mart chains have made their entry too, competing with local convenience stores.
Lamai also has a few small shops and boutiques to choose from at Beach road and Ban Lamai on Main Road in particular. The same range of products as in Chaweng but a much smaller scale.
Lamai Market is a traditional Thai market with about the same assortment as in Chaweng but much smaller, located at Ring Road.
If you can’t live without western foods and imports, a wide range of imported products and ingredients like ham, cheese, sausages, salami, flour, bread, cream and much more is available here, located south of Lamai temple.
