As you are visiting Thailand, you might think about what souvenirs, gifts, and mementos you might want to take home with you. Whether you’re buying for friends, family members, or simply just for yourself, here are some ideas you might like.
If you are looking for something authentic, elegant, lightweight, and easy to travel with then Thai silk products such as a purse, a necktie, a scarf, a pillow cover make great souvenirs and gifts.
Another idea is to bring the delicious taste of Thai food experiences home with you – yum! Curry pastes or ready to make Thai dishes including stir-fried Thai basil, green curry, massaman curry, and pad Thai are all widely available. All you need to do is add meat and vegetables of your choice when you get home. Tom Yum is a popular Thai dish which you can find in a variety of products from instant noodles, rice crackers, to dried seasoning baked seaweed snacks. So even if you don’t want to cook, you can still bring some Thai snacks home! Red Bull originated from Thailand so that’s another option for those looking to try the original taste of the world-famous energy drink.
Thailand’s agricultural industry also gives us a few options for souvenirs. Hand-woven handbags are increasingly popular, and they are made in lots of shapes, materials, and styles suitable for both casual and formal occasions. To make your souvenirs more personal, at Bangkok’s famous Chatuchak weekend market it’s even possible to decorate your own woven bags.
