Great places to eat and drink and on Friday the market is a real eye opener! You have a choice of expensive or on a budget so it really does suit all. I purchased a really nice watch in the market for around £20 so a great bargain

Had an amazing seafood feast on the beach with icy cold beer & cocktails. Friday night markets the best. Enjoyed a local rock band while enjoying more cold beer & cocktails at an outdoor bar. Great night.

What was the old fishing village is now a trendy little shopping and eating village that still retains a lot of charm

Great drinks and beach hang as a couple, with friends or family. Can be a bit loud and noisy. We went jetskiing and had a blast!

Our resort was a mere 5 minutes from Fisherman's Village and it really made the whole stay special. I personally believe this is the best area to stay in Koh Samui. Fantastic restaurants and cafes with great service, massage places, money exchange which had the best rates on the island. Loved it.
