Kanchanaburi Shopping and Souvenir Shop
Major souvenir shops are concentrated around the eastern approaches, and riverine environment, of the world-famous bridge.. Almost every handicraft produced in Thailand can be purchased there. Browsing to compare quality, and good-humored but determined bargaining, will ensure favorable prices for ready-made leisurewear and other apparel, and popular souvenirs such as bamboo musical instruments, palm leaf mobiles, ceramic decorations, lacquerware and bronzeware receptacles, paper parasols, and Thai silk and cotton lengths.
Kanchanaburi is a major source of high-quality Thai blue sapphires. These are mined at Ban Phloi, as are onyx and topaz. Purchases of finished jewellery creations can be made at Ban Phloi's Jewellery Handicraft Centre and other satellite outlets.
