Most western standard baby products (strollers, toys, books etc.) are more expensive in Thailand as they are imported. Everyday supplies, such as those mentioned in our baby packing advice, may be cheaper if you would like to stock up. The large Tesco and Big C on the way to the airport have a decent choice of feeding utensils, for example, as well as cheap clothing for infants and toddlers.
For good quality clothing, Vogue supermarket in Krabi Town has the biggest range (though of limited style) available on the top floor; some shops on the beachfront stock a small selection of mainly Thai style baby outfits; while the Premium Outlet Village, also on the airport road (between Big C and Tesco), has a small section with discounted designer infantwear.
For a far bigger range of baby clothing and products, including popular wooden toys by internationally known Thai companies such as Plan Toys and Wonderworld, visit Central Festival Department Store in Phuket, or Central Plaza in Surat Thani, both of which are around 2 hours’ drive away.
