Bangkok is a great place for bargaining, but make sure you’re capable enough to do so. The disparity between Thai baht and other currencies usually creates confusion during shopping. So, do your homework beforehand and get enough amount of your currency converted into Thai baht. Real Tai antiques are rare and costly, so don’t trust any street-vender selling anything else looking old at cheap prices. Always buy these items from reputed antique dealers. Bangkok has numerous traders of gems and ornaments, but scams are also prevalent everywhere in the city. Buy them from a reliable source instead of any shop claiming ‘one-day sale’ kind of discounts. Keep smiling and behave politely even you bargain hardly with a shopkeeper.
