The delightful surprise about shopping in Chiang Mai is that you don't have to part with much of your hard-earned money—even the most elaborately crafted silver, for instance, costs a fraction of what you'd expect to pay at home. Fine jewelry priced at just above the current market value, as well as pewter, leather, and silk, are on display all around the city. The most popular buys are vibrant hill tribe textiles and products made from textiles, such as handbags and shoes; handicrafts, from handmade paper to pretty parasols; hippy clothes; knockoff bags; and accessories and jewelry.
