One of the biggest tourist attractions in Bangkok, Thailand is the endless pirated and counterfeit goods on sale in Bangkok markets and places like Sukhumvit Road and Khaosan Road where Bangkok tourists love to shop. When travelers go to Thailand they often bring back travel souvenirs that include, Louis Vuitton luggage, Gucci bags, Lacoste shirts, Tommy Hilfiger jeans and other rip-offs of popular famous name brands. YOu can also find here coffee, car parts and jewelry.
The counterfeit goods industry is so big in the East that it was only a matter of time before The Museum of Counterfeit Goods was opened in Bangkok, Thailand. For a quirky museum visit this site where the confiscated counterfeit goods are displayed next to the original items so that you can see if you can spot the difference. Some are very good replicas others not so much! More than 4,000 goods are on display each of which has been produced against the law breaking trademark laws. The museum is housed in the law offices of Tilleke & Gibbins which has amassed the collection through their work on counterfeit cases and their work with the police. The collection covers garments, leather goods, electrical gadgets and much more.
