WHERE TO SHOP AND WHAT TO BUY IN KOH CHANG
Although shopping on Koh Chang can be very limited, it still offers some interesting items not found anywhere else in Thailand (like T-shirts with the word ‘Koh Chang’ on it). Shops are often located close together along the road of each beach. An easy stroll along the road will find you small shops one after another. Shops on every beach are pretty much the same so don’t expect much variety other than the usual mix of souvenirs, beachwear, Thai paintings, CDs and DVDs and sunglasses. Trinket (handmade accessories and scarves, among others) sellers usually roam the beach and displaying their products right in front of your resort’s beachfront area.
Some major beaches like White Sand and Kai Bae are home to Speedo and BSC (a brand of swimming suits) shops. Some also has a nice collection of new and used paperbacks available in different languages. Explore the shops in your area and enjoy what Koh Chang has to offer.
