Backpacking Thailand: Royal Thai Handicraft

On my way back to the city centre yesterday from Damnoen Saduak floating market, the bus made a pitstop at the Royal Thai Handicraft… I was completely taken away by the abundance of beautiful woodwork on display at the workshop! Nothing riles me up more than the mere thought of how some people who undervalue the work of artists, or worse, offering less than half of the price tag – a lot of hard work and hours are invested into their pieces and sometimes they don’t work in the best conditions either. If you’re really interested to purchase an artwork, start at a little more than half and expect to meet somewhere in the middle. On a side note, the little girl is so cute! She’s learning how to count and greet in English and she’s really, really good!
