Where to buy swimming earplugs, etc. in Koh Samui?

My wife and I fly into Koh Samui in a couple of days, coming in from Laos. She needs earplugs in order to swim. Could anyone recommend a place to tell our taxi driver to stop to pick them up there, assuming they are available on the island at all? (Or if we can get them at the airport in BKK in transit, that would be good to know.)

More generally, we'd welcome recommendations on where to stop off for snacks, wine, alcohol, etc. We'll be going from USM to the Conrad Koh Samui on the taxi service Mr. Samui, FWIW.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Hi

The island are full of pharmacy and convenient stores ask the driver to stop at one of them. I'm sure you will be able to get your ears plugs at one of the pharmacy, also at the phamacy you can get your suplies for toiletries, sunscreen etc, you can buy alcohol, cigarettes, snacks etc at convenient stor the like of 7/11 minimart, family mart.

Happy holiday :)

As sweetpea said, there are 7/11's, minimarts and pharmacies everywhere and you will pass many on the way to your hotel. There is nothing too much around the Conrad so it is a good idea to stock up before you get there.

You could also stop at the Tesco Lotus supermarket which is a huge supermarket/department store where you could probably buy everything you need in the one stop.

For decent wine you'll need to go to Tesco Lotus on the main ring road in Chaweng.

For all your others snacks and alcohol the cnr 7/11's sell at about the same prices as Tesco Lotus.
