Although shopping on Kai Bae Beach can be somewhat very limited, it still offers some interesting items not found anywhere in Thailand (like T-shirts with the word 'Koh Chang' on it). Shops are located close together along the beach's main road. An easy stroll along the road will find you small shops one after another. Shops on every beach are pretty much the same so don't expect much variety other than the usual mix of souvenirs, beachwear, Thai paintings, CDs and DVDs and sunglasses. Trinket (handmade accessories and scarves, among others) sellers usually roam the beach and displaying their products right in front of your resort's beachfront area.
