With its laid back atmosphere and a traditional character all of its own, Fisherman’s Village offers visitors a unique and appealing experience of Koh Samui.
The well preserved Chinese shop houses that line the beachside strip create a charming old world ambience, and it's a joy to to simply wander up and down the street, especially in the evenings, browsing the small shops and choosing a restaurant for your evening meal.
Thanks to its modest size, visitors can quickly get to know the local personalities in Bophut village, even on a short visit, especially because many of them run tourist shops or relaxed beachside eateries along the strip.
Despite the obvious Thai influence, the menus offer cuisine from around the globe with highlights including fresh seafood, succulent steaks, rich Indian food and even world class Haute Cuisine.
Although not known as a place to party the night away, Fisherman’s Village boasts a selection of laid back beach bars and pubs. There are also occasional live music performances and even a weekly pub quiz at The Frog and Gecko, which always pulls in the crowds.
For healthy visitors, yoga classes and massage treatments are readily available for visitors and the sea is safe for swimming year round. Bophut pier is also the daily departure point for diving and snorkeling trips to Koh Samui’s colourful reefs and offshore islands.
