  • Thailand Shopping

Thailand is a shopper's paradise. Particularly good buys are clothing, both cheap locally produced streetwear and fancy Thai silk, and all sorts of handicrafts. Electronics and computer gear are also widely available, but prices are slightly higher than in Singapore, Hong Kong etc. A Thai speciality are the night markets found in almost every town, here a variety of vendors from designers to handicraft sellers have stalls selling goods which cannot normally be found in malls and day markets. Most night markets also have large open air food courts attached. Most shops, including those in malls and departments store complexes, are generally open from 10am to 10pm, though opening hours are typically longer in tourist areas than in smaller local towns.
