The 7-Eleven shops are everywhere in Thailand. Almost every street has one of these shops. There You can find everything You need. Of course there is Tesco and Big C as well. Prices are slightly lower then in the UK

Also in Chaweng now there is a massive Topps supermarket, everything you could possibly need.

So many things are cheaper also, especially toiletries. Depends on what brands you are happy to use. Many that you will be familiar with (general household brands) but not so much of the high end brands.

Hi

coming from the UK we find things similarly priced, especially if you are like me and shop at Tescos / Sainsburys or Wilkinson for most things where prices are very competitive in the UK.

We take our antiperspirant, a Boots jungle formula insect repellant and the Soltan Once sun creme, but buy the rest there. We don't take shampoos etc. We buy at 7Elevens, Tesco Lotus, Big C or even Boots / Watsons.
