If you like to dive deep in history through rare and precious objects, you will certainly love Phuket for its numerous Asian and Thai antiques shops. Thai bronzes are very renowned, but you will also find beautiful sculptures, antique furniture, jewelry, ceramics and a wide variety of objects from Thailand, Myanmar and the rest of Asia.
As a matter of a fact, it remains few Thai antiques on the market, or from recent periods. But Thailand is a trading market for antiques from other countries such as Laos, Myanmar, Cambodia or Vietnam. Unfortunately, the market of antiques of Thailand suffers from the high numbers of copies available.
