If you like Tokyo Banana, you’re going to love Lepan Banana! It’s Thailand’s version of the sweet snack and is much cheaper in comparison. However, if you haven’t already tried this, we really recommend you do! Its light yet creamy consistency is super addictive.

4) Soaps and Spa Products

Thought those cupcakes were edible? We thought so too. Those are actually soap! With the variety of shapes and scents, you’re sure to find something that reminds you of a friend or family member! Of course, they also have the phallic ones that you always see on Instagram. But whether or not to get that, we’ll leave it up to you!

5) Packaged Fried Insects

We can already see how this one would be a great conversation starter. Fried insects aren’t a new concept in Thailand in fact, they’re something you’d commonly see in the markets there. If you have curious friends who are also scared to try these, you could get the flavoured ones to ease the experience!

6) Handmade Bags

Handmade bags are normally on the pricier side, but in Bangkok, you can snag one for a relatively cheap price! Some bags have special details on them or certain colourways that make them extra unique. You could even get a matching bag with your Friend since it’s not very expensive!

7) Durian Chips

Not everyone will like Durian, but it’s something that everyone should try at least once! If you’re not a fan of the mushy texture, you can find it in chip form all over Bangkok. This is another thing we highly recommend because they’re really crispy and fragrant!

8) Phone Cases

From phone cases with your favourite cartoon characters to squishable phone cases, you name it, you’ve got it.

Green Curry is a must-try in Bangkok. For friends who love the taste of it or those who have yet to try the dish, this would be a perfect gift! However, it is a paste and requires to be cooked with other ingredients, so do take note of that.
