Camera Shopping Costs

Hi all,

I'm travelling to Bangkok in a couple of weeks time, and want to buy a semi-proffesional digital camera to record my trip.

Would it be cheaper to wait to buy one in Bangkok, or buy one here in the UK?

I here that electronics can be quite a lot of money in Bangkok, due to the import tax?

Many thanks!

Brummy, electronics are no cheaper in BKK. You can do better in the UK and you'll have the peace of mind of a warranty.

Hi

Just got back from bangkok yesterday, wanted to buy a digital camera out there and shopped around - way more than UK even with VAT refund. I would advise you to buy from here!
