Bangkok Shopping: In Search For Your Not So Typical Souvenirs

So during my trip to Bangkok this month, I kind of found some different souvenirs that people do not usually buy when they travel. Well for me, I found these two new things really classy but cheap. Just right across the Siam BTS Skytrain station, you will find a lot of cheap stuff to buy especially at night. As you walk under the train station, you will find lots of clothes, cellphone cases, fake watches and shoes. Then I stumbled upon a stall that sells leather goods, not shoes, but some kind of organizers stuff that I am certain teachers like me will definitely like. I bought two items. One is a sort of laptop case/portfolio or file holder and another one is a smaller version of it that I can use for passport or some other small stuff.

The passport pouch costs 80 Baht (2.50 USD) and you can personalize it by having your name leather engraved. Add a 20 Baht to put a choice of your logo made of steel. The laptop/portfolio case costs 200 Baht (6.25 USD).

They also have different colors of leather and the portfolio cases comes in different sizes. They also have pencil cases, card holders and wallets in different designs.
