  • Phuket is not only a beach-lovers paradise. It's also a shopper's paradise. Whether you're looking for high-end textiles or antiques or hoping to find the ultimate bargain, Phuket won't disappoint. The key to successful shopping in Phuket is to be willing to walk, explore and bargain for what you want. While there are several luxury shopping centers in Phuket, some of the most interesting and unique items are found in night markets, where the locals (and not the tourists) shop. While shopping in Phuket, keep in mind that locals expect you to bargain. Shopping centers and high-end locals will have fixed prices, but when shopping at small local shops and outdoor markets, always bargain for a discount. The price you first hear is not what the seller expects to get. If you pay it, they will take it, but the rule of thumb is that you should offer at least half of what's originally quoted and then go from there. If you're looking for antiques or traditional Thai items, Ban Boran Textiles is a good place to start, as the shop sells all kinds all items produced by tribal workers from all over the country. Or you can try the Touch Wood Antique Furniture shop, which sells not only furniture but also wood carvings and smaller items you could easily take home in your luggage. If you're looking for silk and other traditional Thai products, try the Weekend Market or the cheap Ocean Shopping Mall, where you'll find plenty of bargains.
