Lamai’s night plaza is perfect if you’re looking for a little beachside shopping without the crowds that you’ll encounter at Lamai’s Sunday walking street.
You can find hand-carved soaps, leather goods, artistically painted coconut shells, and a selection of Thai street food. There are stalls selling a variety of goods and trinkets to suit every taste, but being quite small, it’s best to visit the plaza only if you are in the area anyway.
The plaza itself is surrounded by countless restaurants serving delicious food, so why not make a night of it? Spend a little time at the market followed by a delicious meal next to the beach.
This is a great place to practise your bartering skills – vendors will even be expecting you to do so. You might get a real bargain at this market that you can take home with you and treasure forever. Think wooden elephants, bed covers, and exquisite lamps that will perfectly fill that spot on your mantelpiece.
You can also find cheap knockoff watches and other fake goods.
