Located between Maenam and Chaweng, the wonderful charming small town of Bohput or Fisherman’s Village as it is popularly called is among the oldest Thai villages on Samui. The architecture of this small village is of a strong Chinese influence. To this day although it’s inhabitants no longer live exclusively from fishing , it remains residential blended with a strong Thai and International family oriented community embracing traditional values. In recent times the quaint Chinese shop houses have been converted, replaced with a variety of striving commercial businesses from boutique hotels, fine restaurants, bars, real estate agents to small apparel and shoe shops, convenience stores and art galleries offering local Thai handicrafts, Internet cafes and tour/diving consultations.Surprisingly, holiday guidebooks provide little knowledge or offer only fleeting remarks to the reader on this tranquil village, Koh Samui’s most pleasurable romantic secret haven that exceeds holidaymakers expectations. Bohput is a must to visit once on Samui. Fisherman’s village offers an excellent array of eating establishments at very affordable prices in some of the best scenic surroundings available on the island. The village is in proximity to many of the Island ’s fine resorts and minutes from the 18 hole Santiburi Samui Golf Course. Car, metered taxis, local taxi vans or even motorcycles easily reach fisherman’s Village. Many notable resorts are only within a short walking distance.
With an great location in the heart of the village by the beach is the Italian restaurant “Villa Bianca”. This once beachfront boat repair shop has become the “Ristorante Villa Bianca”, recognized as one of Samui’s finest and most romantic dining experiences.
