Chalong Bay Shopping

Where to Shop & What to Buy in Chalong

Chalong is not a major shopping destination as such, but its facilities are good enough for holidaymakers to get by.

With the opening of two supermarkets and malls, HomePro Village and Tesco Lotus @ Park Rawai locals are no longer obliged to make a long trek to Phuket Town or Kata and Karon where there are a lot more options for fun and souvenir shopping.

The venue has been getting more traffic with the opening of a high-end supermarket- the Villa Market. It seems their customer base consists largely of foreigners as all signs are in English. The place is well stocked with a good and quality wine choice, alcoholic beverages, foreign magazines, DVD’s, CD’s, fresh and organic food and fruit, imported snacks, chocolate, biscuits, vinegar, olive oil, spices, seasoning, sauce, candies, baby food, diapers, cereals, pet food, kitchenware, nuts, raisins, baking ingredients and much more, with many items unavailable elsewhere. The luxury of shopping in this supermarket is that the place is quiet with no unpleasant noise unlike most ear-busting supermarkets and shops on the island.

Location: Chaofa West Road just before reaching the Chalong Circle
