Shopping in Pattaya
Fruit in Pattaya
While vacationing in Thailand, I want to buy something as a keepsake from this colorful, joyful, hospitable country. It is impossible to list everything that can be brought from Pattaya, but you can mark the most popular and frequently mentioned goods and souvenirs. So, what tourists bring from Pattaya?
Exotic fruits and fruits
Thailand is renowned for the abundance and variety of tropical fruits and vegetables. Even the beloved bananas are presented here in several varieties. Fruits that are little known in our country have a peculiar (often pleasant) taste, they can be brought to friends and family as gifts. The names are already intriguing: dragon eye (cactus fruit), longan, mangosteen, noina, rambutan, tamarind. Coconuts are everywhere here. Do not take durian with you on the plane - they will not let you in due to the strong unpleasant smell. You can buy exotic fruits in any market or in large department stores. The most famous - markets on the streets of Central Pattaya Road, Second Road, Naclua Road.
Cosmetics and tea
Coconuts in Thailand do more than quench your thirst. They produce coconut oil, which is an ideal cosmetic product. Moreover, this oil is not so expensive - from 150 baht per bottle. Excellent inexpensive cosmetics are another popular souvenir from Pattaya. Thai hypoallergenic deodorants "Crystal" are very famous for 50-100 baht, Thai balms, shampoos, creams and scrubs for 50-200 baht, therapeutic and whitening toothpaste from 35 to 95 baht. Thai teas are popular with tourists, which, like cosmetics, have medicinal properties. For example, Bengal blue flower tea is beneficial for bronchitis..
Wood and leather goods, clothing and footwear
What to buy in Pattaya for yourself or your family, how to surprise and please your loved ones - everyone decides taking into account the thickness of their wallet. Here you can buy unique teak wood products - furniture, figurines, boxes, images of elephants, snakes and other animals. Many people buy panels with dried insects - beetles, butterflies. An elephant statuette, for example, will cost you 100 baht and more (depending on size). In Pattaya stores, you can buy relatively inexpensive crocodile leather, snake leather, and if you're lucky, elephant leather. Bags, wallets, frames, straps are much cheaper here than here.
The resort sells a lot of clothes and shoes, various accessories, both local, national producers, and with labels of well-known international companies. For example, T-shirts from 200 baht, shorts from 200-300 baht, summer shoes from 350 baht, Thai scarves from 600 baht and above.
Products made from Thai pearls are very popular among tourists. A small necklace can be purchased by bargaining for 350 baht. Items made of precious metals with rubies, sapphires and other stones will cost much more. And, nevertheless, here you will pay less for jewelry gifts than in your native metropolitan boutiques..
But remember that images of Buddha cannot be taken out of the country (you can only in the form of wearable medallions). And for the export of precious stones, an appropriate certificate will be required..
