There are many things to do in this accommodations area of Thailand
. San Kamphaeng is located in Chiang Mai
Province in northern Thailand. This small market town remains well known for peace and tranquility but its reputation today is for hand-woven silks and cotton fabrics
(some producers having displays illustrating the processes of silk manufacture), and pottery kilns. The area close to your accommodation is a haven for traditional handicrafts made by craftsmen using skills which have been handed down through countless generations of artisans. They include silverware, lacquer ware, celadon pottery, silk and cotton, hand-painted paper umbrellas and more. If you are looking for the authentic as well as beautiful you will have a fantastic time shopping a stone’s throw from your vacation rental. At San Khaempeng, you can see Thai 'loomsmiths' weaving silk and witness the skilled process required to produce a fine garment. Many exclusive boutiques
around town sell quality garments sewn from silk and it comes in different grades, as well as an impressive array of contemporary and distinctive traditional Thai styles. Use your condo rentals
as a base when visiting the local boutiques. At the Night Bazaar, you will also find plenty of silk on sale but be wary of imitation synthetic silk, so-called 'Chinese silk', which has a similar appearance, although isn't as soft. It's also about a fifth of the price. Regardless, the prices here are unbeatable and make this product a perennial favourite. If you love silk clothing, then travel to San Kamphaeng often, and find your condo rental lodging through Owner Direct Vacation Rentals.
