Fisherman's Village, Bophut
Concierge.com's insider take:
Fisherman's Village is a strip of old Chinese shophouses on Bophut Beach converted into boutiques, bars, and restaurants. Gain courage at the Mosquito bar (66-81-895-7210; email@example.com) before heading into Yes, It Is!! Tattoo (66-87-385-6571; firstname.lastname@example.org), where the island's top tattoo artist, Korkiat, etches his original designs onto skin.
