Bangkok is a great city for shopping. You can find markets and malls all over the city. If you are finding what to buy in Bangkok in order to bring back to your country, you have come to the right place. In this post, I intend to share what you should buy in Bangkok for yourself and also your friends and family. Hope it is useful.
Clothing and accessories
You can find cheap trendy clothing and accessories in the markets all over Bangkok. The most popular markets for these products are Pratunam Market, Platinum Fashion Mall, and Chatuchak Weekend Market. Many people go there in order to buy products to resell them. You can go there and buy only one or two pieces; the sellers sell both retail and wholesale.
Thai silk and textiles
Thai silk and textiles are famous around the world. The best well-known shop is Jim Thompson Shop (Jim Thompson is an American guy who fell in love with Thailand and with his contribution Thai silk has become popular worldwide). Another great place to buy Thai textiles is Phufa shop. This shop is a project of HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn. You can expect to buy Thai textiles and also handicrafts here. If you want to visit these two shops, I recommend you to go to Siam Paragon. Besides these two shops, Siam Paragon also has Exotic Thai, a zone where you can buy quality Thai arts and crafts.
Everyone likes snacks and every country has its local snacks that are worth trying including Thailand. Thai snacks can be found at supermarkets, convenience stores, and also mom and pop stores around Bangkok. One of my favorite snacks and I recommend you to try is Lay’s. This snack brand is an international brand which you can find it in many countries. Well, some delicious tastes are available only in Thailand such as hot chili squid and spicy Nori seaweed. Other Thai snacks that I recommend can be found here. Hope you like them too!
Thai food seasoning
If you love Thai foods and want to cook them when you are back to your country, buying Thai food seasoning is recommended. I myself used it many times when living abroad. The most well-known brand is Lobo. You can find it in supermarkets and convenient stores.
