When it comes to shopping, Thailand is the place to be. Especially if you’re female! Many girls in Thailand can’t stop shopping even through they have no room left in their wardrobe. Some men have the same problem!
So Thailand is the place for fun, relaxation, eating, and shopping! Many people visit Thailand just for the shopping. Especially clothes and gold.
Shopping for Gold
Thailand is famous for its gold shops. Most cities in Thailand have more than one gold shop. And you can buy gold necklaces and bracelets which are man made from pure and beautiful 18k – 24k gold.
The gold business is very expensive and risky. But people still like gold and want to own it. Some people like to collect gold for the future. Some people buy gold for investment purposes. Some like to buy gold as a gift.
The gold shops in Thailand issue you with a certificate when you buy it, and it needs to be the same price as the other gold shops in Thailand. The price may change every day. The current price is usually shown at the front of the shop.
Markets in Thailand
Thailand has many different types of markets. I will talk about the local markets that they called “Talad Nad”. I’m not sure when this market first began. As far as I know, they’ve been going ever since I was born. Talad Nad doesn’t happen every day. Some places may have Talad Nad 2 or 3 days a week.
Every city has their own markets. Most of them sell the local product. They are very interesting. The markets are usually very busy but the result is good. The prices are usually very cheap as well. Some markets sell food as well as other things. Most markets open in the afternoon. This is because most people have a day time job. After work, they come to the market and sell stuff, it could be any thing.
I like to walk to the market because it helps me to relax from stress after work. Even though I don’t buy anything. Some times I go there to meet friends and we have dinner at the market.
