The East has been thriving as a popular tourist destination due to the diverse attractions and activities it has to offer. Thailand is among the many places listed as a must visit in the East. There are various places away from the main city of Bangkok that are slowly but surely gaining popularity among tourists. Koh Samui is one among them. Most of the tourist attractions in Koh Samui are concentrated in Chaweng and Lamai, however, Bophut is also regarded as one of the places not to be missed when visiting this part of Thailand.

If you are planning to spend a couple of days in Koh Samui, there are endless choices of accommodation to pick from, one such highly recommended Koh Samui Beach Resort is Anantara Bophut Koh Samui Resort. The resort is minutes away from the fisherman’s village plaza which is a key attraction in Bop hut. If you’re looking to take back home lots of memorabilia and souvenirs from this beautiful island then the best bet is to stop by at the Fisherman’s Village. Fisherman’s village walking street is one of the many lively streets in this part of town. The streets are full of life on Fridays between 5 pm and 11 pm when the street is buzzing. There is an impressive selection of small local retail stores as well as boutique stores selling everything starting from clothing, sandals, hats, small electronic gadgets as well as the famous street food of Thailand. Being one of the most famous weekly markets of Koh Samui, the fisherman’s village attracts countless numbers of tourists. Bophut plaza is in close proximity and is an open area with boutiques and shops selling artefacts and other souvenirs. Bargaining at these markets is possible, so make sure to ask for the lowest possible price!
