Thailand as people will recall in my hearing sound great in attraction, good standard of living and a host of more. I read in books about going to this land, but I keep on asking the question if they are nice and accepting visitors request to shop. I love taking a trip with my daughter to see if it is real. Is it really a place to be when people want to shop for gold, silver and other good products?

Telling the truth about Thailand is nothing to hard for me. As I took a trip so six months ago landed myself to a region with one of the best hotels called Royal Cliff Grand Hotel & SPA-Chon Buri, Thailand. Codgers I was really surprised that can there be a paradise hidden here. It is among the high rates hotel with a great offer affordable by clients all around the world by Rilhmaprime service working with this hotel. It accepted as a source for tourism because many expatriates flooded the place like water. It has attractions above the extraordinary hotels around.

I just came from Bangkok,I have been to the tower club in bangkok Thailand, its a nice and stylish hotel that I enjoyed and managed to get a good deal of rihlaprime for that hotel. The city is really nice and 2 must visit places are the Grand Palace & Wat Prakeaw also Chinatown (Yaowarat) which is colourful, exotic and pleasingly chaotic area, packed with market stalls and probably the highest concentration of gold shops in the city.

There is also the floating market which is a fantastic experience and yes you guessed right i'm very much into shopping smile.gif

You can shop for gold and silver in any country but if you don't know anything about buying this stuff you can get taken anywhere!

If you don't know much at all about precious metals and gems do your buying back home where you have more protection! A fool and his money are often parted!

Thailand expects around 22 million tourists this year. Some go for shopping. If something is cheaper than where you live only you know! For some countries you can buy electronics cheaper in Thailand. But for me, compared to the US, I can buy computers and other electronics cheaper back home. So, if you intend to buy stuff, maybe even for resale, know what the same item costs where you come from.

Some tourists from India, Pakistan and some other nearby countries come to Thailand to buy in bulk, wholesale, for resale back home. There are shippers available in the Pratunam area. If you are buying something for your own use how much money would you lose on a souvenir T-shirt or some soap carvings?

If shopping is big on your list of things - not the beaches, historical sites, good food, cheap hotels and excellent transportation - keep in mind that something made in a country other than Thailand may not be cheaper than what you find back home.

Thailand has a high season for hotel prices (when it is cold in North America) and a low season for hotel prices. Low season has more heat and rain. But millions of tourists are in Thailand every month of the year! Some tourists prefer to visit during the rainy season when hotels are cheaper and plant life actually looks alive.

If you will be flying in from distant countries like Europe or N. America try to stay a minimum of 2 weeks. From nearby up to you!

Good luck.
