Nam Tok Moo Noodle
Bought lots of this cute little shirt keychain! 10 for 100 Baht.
Any idea what this is?
It’s a bracelet.
A two-way bracelet.
Only 10 Baht each!
Can choose between gold, silver and rainbow colour somemore. 
If you can negotiate, try 11 for 100 Baht 😛
The Golden Triangle (สามเหลี่ยมทองคำ, crossing Burma, Thailand,Vietnam and Laos) is one of Asia’s two main illicit opium production area.
(Another one is the Golden Crescent crossing Pakistan and Afghanistan)
