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 vacation. 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 occupies 2 main roads leading to the pier. There are also several shops dedicated to handcrafted souvenirs, eco-friendly furnishings, and finely crafted jewelry.

    What are the best places to shop in Maenam?

    The Maenam Walking Street is a popular weekly event held on 2 streets leading to the beach in the central part of Maenam. Every Thursday from 5 pm, these streets are lined with stalls selling an eclectic choice of items.

    You can find clothing, accessories and handcrafted souvenirs, as well as street food and beverages. There are even a couple of stalls selling excellent cocktails. This lively, fair-like market offers a great opportunity to mingle with locals in a friendly and light-hearted atmosphere.
