It has been reported that many major markets across much of Thailand have seen an influx of Thai citizens of Chinese decent going to the market to buy religious items and food ahead of this year’s Chinese New Year celebrations.
Yesterday Yaowarat Road in Bangkok was inundated with Thai-Chinese citizens out shopping for religious items and food needed to perform a Chinese New Year ceremony.
It was reported that prices for items this year have increased slightly in price, however sales of qipao dresses have increased with many women choosing to buy them to wear for ceremonies taking place tomorrow, reports state that the dresses are being sold for 300-800 baht.
In Chachoengsao prices for food and religious items have reportedly not increased at the Bo Bua Market, it has been said that an increased number of people have visited the market this year which has added price-tags to all items sold making things easier for shoppers.
In Trat the sale of boiled chicken, duck and pork is apparently up from last year with many Thai-Chinese residents continuing to buy such items for New Year celebrations of their own.
