Bang Tao Beach Shopping

Where to Shop in Bang Tao

Shopping in this area is markedly different than that of other west coast locations in that cheap and fake brand names - such as are openly available in Patong, Karon and Kata - are not the order of the day.

The onus is on quality goods with a sharp leaning towards antiques, curios and exclusive clothing and accessories.

Most of the good shopping in this area is inland, away from the beaches and many guests at the six-hotel Laguna complex pay a visit to Canal Village, situated in, but not exclusive to, Laguna. Also, each of the hotels in the complex features shops and outlets.
