Sounds great. I know it’s fun but don’t get carried away. I’ve bought stuff in Thailand and then usually found it cheaper right here at home(USA). Didn’t feel I got ripped-off, just not the deal I thought that I got at the moment–fun though. But the fun would have lasted longer if I had learn that I got a great deal 🙂
Check out the gem district in Bangkok. It’s along Silom Rd. I think in Sept. there will be a huge gem show in BKK. I was at the one in Feb. of this year.
