Anyone keen on making their fortune through antiques but bored of bargain hunting in Britain could consider taking holidays to Thailand to pursue their pastime.

Anyone keen on making their fortune through antiques but bored of bargain hunting in Britain could consider taking holidays to Thailand to pursue their pastime.

This is the suggestion of What’s on When, which points out that the River City Shopping Complex in Bangkok holds monthly auctions open to both locals and visitors where an array of items can be bought.

“The monthly auctions are a great place to pick up genuine antiques and traditional handicrafts from Thailand and beyond at reasonable prices,” states the website.

It adds that everything from ceramics to wood carvings is available from countries all over south-east Asia, including Vietman and Burma.

The next auction is to be held on April 4th, followed by May 2nd and June 6th and those interested can view lots in a preview five days before.

According to its official website, the River City complex on the Chao Phraya River opened in 1984 and the best way to get there is by taxi or tuk-tuk (three-wheeled taxi).
