The Old Town of Lanta is not an ideal place for shopping. Not too many people live here. The number of tourists arriving is not yet so large that large retail chains have reached here. So if buying clothes and shoes from famous brands is part of your plans, it will be better to go to the mainland of Thailand. The choice is bigger and discounts are more often there. You can find everything from branded shoes to cosmetics or smartphones. It is better to buy authentic Thai souvenirs and handmade products from local craftsmen in the Old Town. You can also buy those products that will not spoil on the way home here.
You will constantly notice that everyone around you is smiling while walking around the Old Town. This often seems deliberate and inappropriate. However, such traditions are in Thailand. It … Open

Pack of local coffee will be another great and quite budget gift from Lanta. Thais love this drink so much that they are ready to drink it in the morning, at lunch, and in the evening. So, the requirements for the quality of coffee are high here. So you can be sure that everything you can find on the shelves has already passed the strictest control. You can buy not only coffee but also a jezve or coffee service. There is also a lot of good tea in the town. You can find the usual green, black, and local blue matum tea.

If you are not afraid of exotics, then pay attention to cosmetics. Scrubs, masks, peels, and shampoos – all these products Thais make from ingredients that are known only to them. However, the effectiveness of local self-care products is consistently high. If you want, you can buy a shirt made of high-quality Thai silk in the town. Note that the low price and perfect smoothness of the fabric are a sign of fake here. A handbag, belt, clutch or even a backpack made of leather from local artisans will be an interesting purchase. You should not believe in a low price for an alligator product, for example. Otherwise, you will get a thing made of ordinary calfskin at a very high price. You should definitely pay attention to crafts made of teak wood. Special attention should be paid to statuettes in the form of elephants - symbols of Thailand. Local gold and silver jewelry are also good. However, be careful. There is a risk to buy a fake designed for tourists.
