Pattaya - a city where you can buy anything!
Shopping in Pattaya is everywhere and never-ending: on beaches, on the way in and out, at daytime and at night. When one shop closes, others open instead making it appear, as if you are being followed, and not only by hucksters.
Literally, there are thousands of shops, big and small, modern and modest: department stores, supermarkets, street vendors and markets, food, beverage and fruit, flowers, and even bonsai and orchid plants. Tailor-made shops offering to make custom fitted clothes in just 24 hours. Thai silk and leather goods, handicrafts and decorations, gems and jewellery... side-by-side with shops selling the faux brand clothing, fake watches and other attires at great savings.
Anything and everywhere: clothes, shoes, garments, underwear, bags, purses, suitcases, artificial and natural jewellery and well, you name it and most likely you will find it.
Not surprisingly, shopping is the activity of choice and shops are full of visitors. Not only the prices are inexpensive, but one may easily bargain the selling price as well.
The assortment of goods found in Pattaya is really amazing. One can get coloured tattoos, or leave a picture in the painting shops and come back later to pick up your oil-paints portrait.
The variety and quantity is totally mind-blowing, as you walk through Pattaya you will see the greatest variety of goods available for purchase. The outdoor food markets are something to be investigated also, as the variety of exotic, and strange snacks available are unbelievable. If you want to eat Thai style; these are the place to have lunch, you can purchase rich with fried pork, Thai herbs and sauces, for twenty to twenty five baht. Also available is fresh fruit, full of flavour, for another ten to fifteen baht.
Just beware of fakes and imitations when buying goods, especially the gemstones & jewellery, some vendors (even in a reputable looking shop), or hucksters try to sell you as original.
