Tourist-friendly bazaar selling low-priced Thai local products


Thailand is a tourist haven as it offers not only its interesting cultural heritage and unique attractions such as amazingly built temples but also delectable food and traditional products. Compared to the prices in Bangkok when buying Thai local products, you can buy Thai-style dresses, bags, scarfs at low prices in Chiangmai right at Lotus Hotel Pang Suan Kaew's ground floor. When I checked at the night bazaar, the prices are two or even five times higher especially when you speak English. The dresses above, for instance, can be purchased for only 280-950 baht,  FIXED price so no overpricing for "farangs" (foreigners). The Thai silk scarf is only from 120-250 baht compared to 250-500 baht of the same quality sold at any other shops here. It's at Kad Muang Traditional Bazaar where farangs are treated equally as local shoppers. Go to other shops and when you speak dollars, the price also becomes dollars.



See? Lots of "farang" shoppers are going there.

Famous Thai beauty products such as spa

Durian chips, other local desserts and specialties

hi faye! oh, i don't know much about the difference but as far as i know, hand-made thai silk is the best when it comes to design. but as to what the best thai silk is, japan and china are both known for producing silk even before thailand. history has it that thais learned silk-making from these 2 countries.
thanks sa dalaw ha?

Faye, Thai silk has more varieties from low quality to best quality. I like Thai silk better because they are less shiny but quality-wise is excellent. Most Japanese and Chinese silk are madulas but not Thai silk.
