5 Best Shopping in Khao Lak

Most Popular Shopping in Khao Lak

The best shopping in Khao Lak will certainly please most visitors yet leave hardcore shopaholic a bit hungry for more. Despite its rapid development since the end of the 20th century, Khao Lak has not yet reached the mega shopping malls era. It must be said that, apart from beautiful beaches, thick jungle, small fishing villages, and farms, there was nothing else in La On Village and Bang Niang (the two most prominent destinations in Khao Lak) until relatively recently.

The most popular shopping opportunities, therefore, remain at human size: fresh markets, small supermarkets, convenience stores, and independent shops host all that could be required for locals and visitors to spend a good time here.

Elegance remains affordable in Thailand. With over 15 bespoke tailor shops only in La On Village, you will surely find the right place to get a new suit, shirt or pants done. As everywhere else in Thailand, most of these shops are run by polyglot Indian or Pakistani expats. It is pretty difficult to recommend a specific shop as all of them offer much the same goods and services, many of them even sharing the same workshops. You should find the best tailor shop to your taste by talking directly with them. Do not hesitate to bargain!
