Here you will find food vendors, and some of the most unique items available on Koh Samui.

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.

    Is there any entertainment at the Maenam Walking Street?

    • All of the Walking Streets on Koh Samui are being carefully handled by a group of local people, interfacing with government officials to try and make this a beneficial and long-term project. There is in fact entertainment, however not every night. Special events will be advertised, particularly during Thailand’s annual festive events.

      The Maenam Walking street has a stunning Chinese Temple in the middle.
      The Maenam Walking Street does have one venue that the others do not, a stunning Chinese Temple in the middle of the street. This is a must see, especially at night.
