Daiso is a Japanese franchise shop which has many stores around the world. Few years ago I started seeing the shops in Bangkok. Currently there are more than 40 shops in Bangkok, and more than 20 shops in other provinces in Thailand.
Majority of the products in Daiso are sold at 60 baht and are imported from Japan. You can find several kinds of products in Daiso such as cooking supplies, beauty products, fashioned accessories, cleaning equipment, lunch boxes, stationary, gardening tools, products for pet, electronic product, and so on.
It is fun shopping at Daiso because it is about thinking and selecting. I have never made a shopping list before going to the shop, and I always spend almost more than an hour in the shop. First, I have to think about the quality of the products. Then, I have to think whether 60 baht is overrated. From my experience, some products are cheap, while others are not.
Well, I always end up buying several products. If you are going to visit Daiso shop, I would like to warn you that several 60 bath items could turn to be a thousand baht!

Location/ How to get there: You can see the shops and their locations at this link. Some shops are bigger than the others and sell more products, so I do recommend you to go to the big one such as Future Park Rangsit Park branch, or Central Chengwattana branch.
