Buddy Oriental Plaza is a sleek shopping street on Koh Samui's main ring road, just south of Lamai centre. With plenty of shaded parking and an appealing, post-colonial design, it’s all meant to complement the 5-star hotel guests in this part of Lamai Beach. While shopping in this plaza, you’ll discover a serene atmosphere that's light years away from Chaweng’s almost frenetic pace.
