    • Unless you are an expert do not buy raw uncut gem stones on the street. "duh!"

  • Reputable shops are recommended, shop in an alley or from a street scam artist & "Let the buyer beware!"

    • Please do not buy any expensive items from street vendors, if you want to contribute to a persons welfare do so, but do not expect any semblance of quality / value from street vendors / hustlers.

  • Hand finished solid wood teak furniture or Asian antiques.

    • Shipping of even heavy objects is not that expensive.

    • I'm talkin' some incredible furniture, solid teak / cherry wood with exquisite handwork &  finish.

  • Custom made clothes of world famous Thai Silk or imported fabrics.

    • The 'out source, not on sight, tailors'  that dominate most tourist areas are not recommended.
