Koh Samui’s Famed Fishermans Village

Koh Samui is a beautiful tropical island located off the coast of Thailand, known for its stunning beaches, crystal-clear waters, and delicious seafood. If you’re planning a trip to Koh Samui and want to experience a more laid-back and authentic side of the island, Fisherman’s Village is the place to be.

Located in the bustling town of Bo Phut, Fisherman’s Village is a charming and picturesque stretch of road lined with colourful shophouses, seafood restaurants, and souvenir shops. It’s the perfect place to spend a lazy afternoon strolling along the streets, browsing the boutiques, and trying out the local food.

One of the highlights of Fisherman’s Village is the weekly walking street market, held every Friday evening. The market is filled with stalls selling a wide variety of goods, from handmade crafts and souvenirs to clothing, jewellery, and local snacks. It’s a great opportunity to pick up some unique gifts or souvenirs or simply soak up the atmosphere and enjoy the live music and street performances.

Aside from the walking street market, there are plenty of other things to do and see in Fisherman’s Village. You can visit the local temple, Wat Plai Laem, which is known for its giant statue of Guanyin, the Buddhist goddess of mercy. Or, you can take a boat tour from the pier and explore the nearby islands and beaches.

Of course, no trip to Fisherman’s Village is complete without trying some of the local seafood. The restaurants and food stalls in the area serve up a variety of fresh and tasty dishes, from spicy shrimp curry to grilled squid and fish. Whether you’re a seafood lover or not, you’ll find something to enjoy in Fisherman’s Village.

Overall, Fisherman’s Village is a must-visit destination for anyone visiting Koh Samui. It’s a great place to relax and unwind, experience the local culture, and indulge in some delicious food. So, if you’re planning a trip to the island, make sure to add Fisherman’s Village to your list of places to visit.
