Downtown Patong is the place to shop. My husband doesn’t usually like shopping but he has always made an effort to indulge my need for spending and acquisition in a place like Thailand, mainly because he knows it saves a lot of money in the long run, and also because he is on holidays and more relaxed (yay).
In Real Life getting him out to do clothes shopping is a major accomplishment, and then he doesn’t want to go to various different shops. One-stop shopping maybe once a year is his idea of enough.
So I am particularly proud of my pack-horse and co-negotiator of price. We left “home” (Thara Patong Beach Resort) to spend over four hours shopping.Various haggling and purchases from a number of shops and stalls left us exhausted, broke and happy.
The following photo tells it all.
