This government-run shop sells high-quality handicrafts made in villages across Thailand. Expect to find plenty of Thai silk clothes and linens, enamelware, Bencharong porcelain, bath and body products, and even spirit houses.
The shop, behind the Intercontinental Hotel, is very large and doesn’t ever feel vibrant or bustling.
