Top Night Markets of Koh Samui - Explore Koh Samui

Night markets are undoubtedly one of the most exciting places to visit when you go to Thailand. Here are the top picks.


Fisherman's Village Walking Street

Fisherman's Village Walking Street is the most popular night market in Koh Samui and it comes alive only on Friday evenings which makes it a sought after affair. The narrow beach road that leads to the beach comes alive with so many different vendors selling a variety of products such as bathing suits, summer dresses, shorts, tops, t-shirts, flip flops, bags, and even handmade jewellery. The prices are extremely low which allows you to do a ton of shopping for a small amount of money and even though some of the products hold similar names to international labels they are of sound quality for the price you pay. The market comes alive around 5 pm and goes on till around 11 pm when the vendors start to pack up their stalls for the week.


Elephant Walk Koh Samui

Elephant Walk Koh Samui is a small night market compared to the other night markets you will come across in Koh Samui. This is located in the Fisherman's Village and located right across the street. The market comes alive daily at about 6 pm and goes on till about midnight. The decorations and the experience itself is quite exciting at the Elephant Walk Night Market even if you decide you do not want to shop for any products. However, there are many vendors that sell a range of products from clothing, accessories and homeware stuff. This little shopping market is only about 30 metres in length so it is not an area that will take up your whole evening to explore.


Chaweng Night Market

Even though the name says Night Market the Chaweng Night Market is more like an eatery where you can come to hang out and enjoy some food. There are many food stalls you can select from and there are also some bars for a few drinks. In Samui, beach resort options near night-markets such as these are aplenty. Anantara Lawana Koh Samui Resort is one such resort that is located in the vicinity which attracts many tourists to the Chaweng Night Market.


Lamai Night Plaza

Lamai Night Plaza is a collection of shops that brightens up the area with a combination of colours, scents, and activities. This night market is open daily from 5 pm till midnight and it is a great place to go search for little knick nacks that are perfect for kids and children as souvenirs and gifts. From cheap copies of clothing, shoes and even bags you can select a variety of different products but if you are not keen on shopping you can browse through while treating yourself to some street food.


Chaweng Walking street
