Whether you are shopping to take things back to your family or whether you are shopping for yourself, Thailand is the land of grabbing some super cute deals. If you are wondering what to take home with you we have a handy list of the bizarre and the beautiful. Read on!


Fruit Soap

The Chatuchak Market is a good place to start if you are looking to experience the weekend market scene in Thailand. It is a feverish atmosphere with lots of people milling about and you might not know what to pick! Take your time browsing the stores and taking pictures with permission. There are some souvenirs you can buy to take back home to your loved ones. But the ones that are often recommended above others are the flavoured soaps. They come in the shape of their fragrance and the most popular ones are the mango ones.



If you or someone back home suffers from rhinitis, head to the market and get them some inhalers. Thai people are notorious users of these little tubes to held clear their nasal passages. The most famous brands are Peppermint Field and Poy Sian.


Thai Silk

Thai silk is on a class and level of its own. You will often find many a 5 star Bangkok hotel adorned in Thai silk pieces and interior décor. If you are on the lookout for high-quality silks and fabrics be sure to visit Jim Thompson House where you can get some fantastic pieces of fabric made of silk including table runners, scarves, pouches and much more.


NaRaYa Bag

NaRaYa is a new brand of high-quality bags and pouches that has taken the local bag scene by storm. It is a must-have accessory in the new year. If you are staying at a luxury hotel in the city the likes of Emporium Suites by Chatrium you will find fellow patrons carrying this bag. Get in on the trend and buy yourself and your family and friends a bag.


Spa & Aromatic Products

Thailand is the place to go for spa products. Some of the more famous shops you can check out are Bath & Bloom and Karmakamet that have a wide range of bath and spa products, aromatic perfumes, oils and salts. One of the local scents that are unique to the country is Thai Jasmine. It is said to relieve stress.


Takabb Anti Cough Pill

The locals also swear by the Takabb Anti Cough Pill. But they are said to have a horrible taste so you might want to weigh your options before purchasing these. Maybe buy one and try and if it helps and is swallowable you can buy a lot to take home.


Coconut Oil

The last item on this list is of course coconut oil. Coconut oil in Thailand is not just used for cooking but for hair treatment, moisturizing and skincare. There are some great local brands you can take home with you.
