A holiday in Phuket would not be complete if you don’t buy souvenirs that you can bring back home. Thai handicrafts are the perfect choice for most people as they are charming yet cheap. Most of the handicrafts you will in Phuket come from Chiang Mai where they are much cheaper, and so you will have to bargain.
You can find Thai handicrafts almost everywhere. From small stalls near your hotel to big shops with hundreds of different items. While the most valuable and ancient handicrafts can be found in Thai antiques shops, many other shops in Phuket sell handicrafts that will be the perfect souvenir to remember your holidays in Phuket. You can also buy presents for your relatives and friends.
Porcelains, lacquer ware, wooden toys, teak items, bamboo baskets, elegant bags, soaps, essential oils, saa paper, lamps: here are just a few handicrafts that you can find, but there are much more!
