The Thai silk
products you find in Bangkok are some of the best quality silk materials you can find in the entire world. Therefore they are one of the top souvenirs from Bangkok that you could purchase for yourself or your loved ones. The rich silk fibers obtained from silkworms are used to create a range of colorful products including scarves, ties, bags, cushion covers and so much more. A great recommendation to look for the best quality options would be from Jim Thompson outlets. They even have an outlet in the airport for you to do some last-minute souvenir shopping before you fly back home.
2) Spa Products
Bangkok's spa products truly make some of the best gifts that you can take home. Using unique combinations of essential oils and other natural products, you can find a whole range of products including bath oils, fragrant soaps coming in all sorts of shapes and sizes, body scrubs, and scented candles. Most of them also offer great health and beauty benefits. These products are often available as single units or attractive gift packs that are ideal to pamper and soothe the mind and body. Bring some home for you to reminisce on your holiday in Bangkok.
Bangkok is a great place where you can pick up high-quality jewelry, especially silver jewelry at reasonable prices. Also since they are quite small in size, you would not need to worry too much about running out of space in your baggage. You should look out for a range of top-quality hill tribe silver pieces carefully handcrafted by tribes in Northern Thailand. Trust us, the designs are jaw-droppingly beautiful and you can choose from a range of necklaces, bracelets, and rings.
when you are purchasing silver items, look for a stamp that denotes the type of silver. For example, a '925' seal means that it's sterling silver jewelry
that is made of 92.5% silver.
