- Seek out some souvenirs at the ThaiCraft Fair in Bangkok

June 16, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News divulges anyone staying in Bangkok hotels who enjoys a spot of shopping should head to the ThaiCraft Fair in July to browse the unique items on offer.

On July 17th, more than 50 craft groups from a host of villages around Thailand will be plying their wares at the Jasmine City Building.

Easily accessible from Sukhumvit hotels, the event could be ideal for any travellers looking for some unusual souvenirs to take home.

Items from furniture and toys to clothes and jewellery will be available from the various stalls.

The vendors will open their stands from 09:30 until 15:00 (local time), giving shoppers plenty of time to peruse the goods on offer.

Many of the products are made using traditional methods, so anyone who is looking for something authentic to take home with them will not be disappointed.

Beautiful silk scarves and useful baskets made from woven bulrush are among the mementos that travellers could pick up at the craft fair.

And the ThaiCraft Fair is a Fair Trade event, so tourists will know that they are helping some of Thailand's communities with their purchases.
