Is there any convenient shops on Karon Beach?

Hi,

I'll be visiting Karon Beach later this summer and was wondering if there are any shops on Karon Beach that would sell sun screens, aloe lotion, and such. I won't be checking any bags, so the liquids that I'll be bringing would be limited (by airport security).

Thanks!

Definitely. There is a big 1 Supermarket plus a couple of chemists in Karon. There are also numerous 7/11s and minimarts so you will be able to get everything you need without a worry.

You'll pay dearly for sunscreen though in Thailand

There are also a couple of the newly opened Bamboo Marts. However the products are expensive.

Try the restaurant next to the Bamboo Pharmacy 'Restaurant with No Name', hope Ringo can confirm it's still there, it is terrific. The food was fantastic, great prices, central location - looking forward to returning in three weeks.

Bamboo Marts - noted. What do you think their price range is? I mean.. a thing of good sun screen in NY is around $10 US, that's like 300baht.. would they be more expensive than that?

Thanks much!
