One of the newest additions to the nightlife activities that are occurring on the coconut isle of Koh Samui have been named the Walking Streets. Now as opposed to what you just might expect happening in a Pattaya Walking Street, the ones that are on Samui are of a much different nature.
Here you will find food vendors, and some of the most unique items available on Koh Samui.
From twisted lights to Koh Samui Passports and very, very cheap drinks this Walking Street gives the Expat as well as the Tourist something to do beyond the ordinary. Starting at 17:00 every Thursday, the market opens up with traditional Thai smiles, fried insects, cotton candy and a plethora of goods handmade by local and national hands.
Food tasting is by far the most popular activity, as many vendors will allow you a taste before buying. But since most things are inexpensive it is worth buying them and sharing for the experience. The streets are closed to traffic and the surrounding established shops, bars and restaurants are also open for a sit down snack and drink.
