Many first timers to Bangkok notice the cost of some products compared with their home countries is significantly cheaper. If you love shopping, then Bangkok is an excellent destination for you, no matter what you are looking to buy. You can also make money by buying goods in bulk and then selling them when you get home, which may even help you pay for your trip. Below are some of the popular export items you may wish to consider purchasing to sell on for a profit when you visit Thailand.
Bangkok is one of the world’s jewellery capitals, and you can find many excellent artisans that produce high-quality handmade jewellery. There is jewellery available from a wide variety of precious materials, including gold, silver, platinum, and various gemstones. You can purchase sterling silver bangle bracelets wholesale, or whatever you think you can sell, take these back home and sell them for a profit, usually at a cheaper rate than you will in your home country. The more you buy, the lower the unit price, so you may wish to buy in bulk, but you need to be aware of import and export requirements for Thailand and your home country.
