With its many shops and stalls, Pak Thong Chai has an amazing number of goods and souvenirs.
You can peruse the wares or venture further into the village and see the renowned silks being made by hand. Local women work the old fashioned looms in a clattery and noisy process using their feet and hands to manipulate threads and position fibres.
Products include scarves, picture frames, clothing, fabric, draperies and other decorations. Pak Thong Chai is around 30km from Nakhon Ratchasima and can be easily reached by bus (30B) from Bus Terminal 1.
