Shopping in Chalong | Shopping-wise, Chalong can definitely be described as convenient in terms of providing everyday household items and food requirements. It isn’t one of the major retail shopping destinations on the island in terms of fashion. There are a number of shopping complexes, including a few Tesco Lotus outlets along both main roads and an international supermarket near Chalong circle.

There are quite a number of antique shops positioned along Chaofa Road West towards the centre of the island selling unique items.
