Nathon town is Samui's administrative centre and where the locals head to do some serious shopping at low prices. The two main roads in Nathon are filled with shops and stalls selling silk goods, shoes and excellent copies. Although Chaweng has more choice, you can still find most things in Nathon. There are several excellent souvenir shops in Nathon as well for something quirky to take back home!.
