Wallets from Thailand

Wallets from Thailand
I always bring something from my trips, something symbolic or useful for me or my friends. Thais’ markets amazed me variety of goods, bright souvenirs and others useful things for house. I would like to tell about leather wallets. Leather goods are always traditional souvenirs from Thailand. At least you can buy here much cheaper than for example in your country but don’t forget that it may be not natural leather. Even people who don’t use wallets buy them here. When tourists see this assortment and variety of models they can’t resist and buy it. If you don’t trust markets it’s better to go to special stores. Risk to buy a fake is minimal. Of course prices will be higher but quality will be better. Most of tourists (who I saw) bought leather goods on streets but some fakes passed for real one and sold for original prices.
 I decided to overpay to buy some natural. Sellers in Thais’ stores treat quite well on customer’s haggle. For example I bought a wallet made of alligator’s skin for 2000 baht without haggle.

Little bit about alcohol in Thailand but not drinks that you can order in bars or restaurants but drinks that are sold special stores.
