Fisherman’s Village Samui is a historical part of Bophut, with rustic-style buildings, housing boutique stores, trendy restaurants and a small selection of hotels along the Beach Road. Every Friday from 05.00 p.m. – 11.00 p.m., the whole area becomes the site of the Fisherman’s Village Walking Street Market, attracting huge numbers of shoppers from across the island for the amazing variety of wares and the lively atmosphere.
This old part of Bophut Beach obviously takes its name from the fact that it was once home to a thriving fishing community, recently the fishermen have moved on and the main pier has collapsed, but the old wooden shophouses remain, with a warren of narrow alleys running between many of them, giving the village a charming old look.
Fisherman’s Village Walking Street differs in the unusually high number of unique (or at least quite rare) goods you can find. These include interesting handicrafts, herbs and spices, musical instruments, an impressive range of shoes, high quality local fabrics, one-of-a-kind jewelry and interesting fashion designs. You will also see fun street performances (including Muay Thai demonstrations, beatboxing and traditional Thai dances) particularly in front of the town’s old pier. The range of food and drink stalls are particularly impressive, allowing you to enjoy famous Thai treats like pad thai, banana pancakes, tempura seafood, and a colorful array of street food. By car, from Malibu Resort & Beach Club, Koh Samui, Only 14 Minutes (6.9 km.) to Fisherman’s Village.
