‘Mementos For Father’s & New Year’s Gifts’ at Khlong Phadung Krung Kasem Market
This month’s topic of the Khlong Phadung Krung Kasem (คลองผดุงกรุงเกษม) market is ‘Mementos For Fathers & New Year’s Gifts’. The market is situated next to the Government House in Bangkok’s Old City and takes place from 1-24 December 2015, daily from 10 am to 7 pm.
Divided into two periods, the first one from 1-12 December 2015 focussed on the theme of ‘Gifts for Father’s Day’. The second period from 13-24 December 2015 is all about ‘New Year’s Gifts’. For every item you purchase for 300 Baht per shop, you have the chance of getting a prize from the lucky draw station. In addition, you can also get free gift wrapping.
Since H. M. King Bhumibol’s Birthday was on 5th December, the market invites you to show loyalty to the King by writing a salute. After registering at the zone, you receive a piece of paper to write down a salute and hang on the Bodhi tree.
Are you a flower and nature lover? Then I have some special items to present to you from this market festival. First, there are the adorable handmade ‘Real Flower Accessories’. Aren’t they amazing? The petals are dried and arranged, then coated with resin.
Maybe you are looking for a nice floral home decoration? Take a look at ‘Fah Artificial Flower’ from Supanburi Province. They offer a special price on their wonderful fabric flowers.
Another wonderful item and New Year’s present is the ‘Gift Box’ which contains beautifully arranged artificial flowers.
What is more, the market presents numerous amazing and unique Thai handicraft products such as these exquisite articles by Sukkee. By the way, Sukkee is one of the OTOP exporters that were awarded by the Ministry of Commerce.
In fact, there are a variety of appealing products to satisfy shoppers such as these adorable handmade articles by ‘Thaisouvenir & Gift’. These turtles with crystals on their carapace are believed to symbolize and bring both longevity and prosperity to the owners.
I also cherish the stunning Thai handicraft articles by “Jiam Sansajja Bronze Factory”.Take a look at these fine arts 🙂
There are many more exotic products like these beautiful articles made from Thai mango trees by “Creationwww”.
Last but not least, there are some very cute teddy bears from ‘Teddy Bear Thailand’ that offers a super special price only at this event. You can take pictures with a bunch of furry teddy bears and take one home.
