Shopping in Thailand

Shopping in Thailand

Although Thais tend to believe (mistakenly) that Hong Kong and Singapore are the shopping meccas of southeast Asia, you can buy virtually anything in Bangkok, often at bargain-basement prices. Imports, notably foods, tend to be expensive, so if you must eat cornflakes, cheese, and pickles, expect to pay through the nose! Thailand's industrial base has expanded enormously in the past thirty years, and the country now has a range of factories producing electrical goods, textiles, pharmaceuticals, and so on. If you want to go on a shopping spree you will find most of these local products reasonably priced and of good quality. Some foreigners get annoyed because they feel they are being charged more at markets than a Thai would be, but vendors tend to price their goods according to a person's ability to pay and they reason, correctly, that a foreign tourist is well-heeled compared with most of the Thai customers.
