Thailand is a shopping paradise, but also a culinary heaven, so we did most for our gourmet taste and less for shopping and also spent most of our pocket-money on travel:).
So markets and street foods are relatively cheap there, international brands are rather expensive. That is the cause I did not purchased anything at Sephora there, it was 30-40% more expensive than in Europe and also so dirty and lack of selection, so My Sephora wishlist still on due but might will order them from brand websites…
Clothes at markets are really cheap, specially if you bargain. You can spend a whole day doing that, but the clothes are the same what you can order from asian websites like aliexpress or shein. So did not wasted our time and travel weight on it. Only bought and elephant trousers which is rather touristic item, but linen and 3 scarves as gifts.
We did bought some local products like coconut oil, teas and tiger balm. Some postcards, beer fridge or holder (or I do not know what it is just they do serve beer in it), magnets (15)as for souvenirs. Dry durians! we did not try it on spot, because it was prohibited due to its smell at hotels, transportation and at Bangkok Chinatown we felt its smell uff… so we left it for the last day and did not find it in Kata, Phuket.
And a lots of products from 7eleven, most of them just unknown for us, but they do like chocolates with green tea, alga snack, sweets, sauces and instant soups ect.
At duty-free Phuket the following sweets:
Duty free Doha:
- cigarettes my husband smokes unfortunately and it was a way cheaper than at home – he does not know that he will have a quitting therapy soon:)
- Clinique BB cream (really like it and my Bobbi Brown one will over soon)
- perfumes: Chanel: Gabrielle (got from my hubby) and a men’s Paco Rabbane
