This is not all of my shopping list. I’m too embarrassed to list out the green ceramic and blue glass carafe, tiered dish, shirts, bags, lingerie and dresses. Question is how much can you carry even if SIA gives you an allowance of 30kg per pax.  Chatuchat is so much cooler than before, possibly there’s air condition? At the entrance of Chatuchat market, there’s a van offering foreign exchange.  So bring cash.

Most of these items are bought from Chatuchat or Siam Paragon. There’re shops selling large driftwood sculptures to tiny figurines at Chatuchat and Asiatique. There’s so much to see, do and eat, that I’m so tired every night, I’ve no time for DVD movies at the hotel.
