| Popular product in Koh Phangan are the hammocks (check the "Hammock Home" in Baan Tai). The hammock is the most essential item on the island - where else will you be able to conveniently relax while enjoying the breathtaking views, beautiful sunrises and sunsets, oscillating coconut trees, and beautiful azure sea in the background? All the best views of Koh Phangan only visible from the hammock!
Also on the island you can buy T-shirts, sunglasses, jeans, shorts, DVDs, CDs, music, movies and electronic devices, a fresh made coconut oil, silver products, as well as some of the works of local artists. Koh Phangan has a variety of Thai handicrafts, some of which come from other parts of Thailand and some regional specialities. Most of the clothing has some variety, but all of this can be found in Bangkok and to be honest, the items are more expensive here as are imported to the island.
However, many art galleries, believed to be a well selling their works and in most places will offer variety works and services, including your personal orders and art reproduction. These places have a good reputation and reasonable prices. One of these galleries, on the contrary Thongsala port offers fine silver, some with semi-precious stones.
If you stayed for a long time on Koh Phangan and in need of cheap foods and beverages - head to Makro, Big C or Tesco Lotus located in Thong Sala and Baan Tai. Here is a large selection of products, low prices, cheaper than 7-eleven, and also has a delightful affordable bakery, opening hours from 10.00 - 22.00
Some shops in Koh Phangan sell Thai silk, but before buying, make sure the authenticity of the material and the labels (although the label in our time can forge any). However, there are several ways to check whether the matter from the real mulberry silk, or it's the most obviously fake. One of them is fire. You need to take a small piece of silk, and set it on fire, silk burns like the hair, emitting a pungent smell, while synthetic silk burns slowly as if melting and then the rest continues to burn. In fact, I doubt that in this way the owner of the shop will allow you to check the quality of the product. Not every customer can afford to buy a for example a silk tunic for 2000 Bath, but before you buy such an expensive thing inspect the material at different angles of view, genuine silk is famous for its two-tone manifestation, as you move the garment up to the light. Chinese silk has no such ability.
