Purchasing Rucksack - Bangkok

Posted by Mimi on 23/10/2007 at 05:17

Hi everyone,

I'm travelling to Thailand for the first time in December and was wondering how easily I could purchase a sturdy rucksack (about 70L) in Bangkok. If they're easy to find, where in particular can I find one? I live in a small town here and they are anything between $200-$300.

You'll be able to get a fake one not problems -- for well under US$70. It will be fake though so won't last as long. There are also better quality ones around in dept stores and so on, so you should be able to find something.

How are you planning on getting your stuff from your home town to Bangkok though?!

Amazon may also be worth a look - they have lots of backpacks etc for sale.

I am planning to get to Bangkok with a suitcase, and leave it with a storage facility that I have read about - Bangkok Self Storage Thailand on Rama IV road. I am doing this only because I am going to Ho Chi Minh City afterwards (as I have family there). Thus I will have presents etc from Australia with me when I enter Bangkok and don't plan to lug it around with me for 14 days. It seems like a good idea in my head at the moment (haha) but I will have to see how much I have. Thanks for your reply - muchly appreciated.

just something to consider, if you are going to leave stuff in storage do you really need a 70L backpack? I only travel around with a 40L backpack and it is never full and yes I go for months at a time.

There are reasons as to why I would like to have such a large rucksack (besides never having travelled really light before).
