|Shopping Around Phuket|
Thailand is famous as a Shopper’s Paradise
There are three major shopping areas on Phuket island:
rushing out with your pocket full of cheap Baht, think a little. There are also
people out there eager to take your money as fast as they can, giving back as
little as possible. This might be only a few of the total number of shopkeepers
and vendors, but tourism does attract the worst in every society, so heed the
warnings in our shopping pages.
Prices in the tourist beaches are, naturally, a bit higher than in Phuket Town
or other areas, so be prepared to bargain. The shopkeepers (except in large
department-type stores) and vendors start with high prices, in the expectation
that those wanting a bargain will haggle over the price.
In Phuket one can find samples of most of Thailand’s famed products. Though you
might have to hunt, and travel around, that can be half the fun.
