Is this a "shopping post"? Are there interesting handicrafts, artwork, antiques, or other items that people typically buy there?

Oh yes, tons of shopping here. There is a huge furniture area with tons and tons of shops called Baan Tawai. You can get anything custom-made there or search among their many antiques. All the Thai silk you can imagine is sold in lots of places. There is the night market and walking street for smaller, handicrafts and touristy things like t-shirts. Gems and jewelry are plentiful and reasonably priced. There are tons of shops where you can have photos drawn in charcoal or pastel. You can shop until you drop here! - Mar 2019
