If you are looking to see something unique in Bangkok that will also help you spot the “real deal” on your shopping excursions, then the Museum of Counterfeit Goods is definitely worth visiting. Of course make time to also explore this charming city and taking a Bangkok cruise tour is an ideal way to do so. Featuring luxurious Bangkok cruises on the famed Chao Phraya River, Anantara Cruises Thailand is one such option worth considering.
Located in Supalai Grand Tower and belonging to the Tilleke & Gibbins law firm, the Museum of Counterfeit Goods showcases an eclectic array of items and goods that are “fake”. The sale of counterfeit products is a major issue in Thailand and the museum gives you a chance to see thousands of exhibits that are forgeries of original ones. As you explore the site one will come across watches, perfumes, drugs, copyrighted materials, footwear, electrical devices and more, all of which are clever reproductions. Products have been labelled F (for fake) and G (for genuine) to help you discern the difference, while one can also learn more about the problems that such inferior goods cause manufacturers and consumers alike.
