One great thing about traveling is picking up souvenirs. And in Thailand, you can bring home something much more significant than a snow globe or a key chain. I’m talking about Thai amulets. Here's an informative article about them.
You can buy Thai amulets all over Thailand. The markets are full of them. They can be made of metal, wood, bone or plaster, and come in all kinds of designs and shapes. Many depict the Buddha (though the Buddha himself did not encourage the wearing of amulets), while others represent famous monks or mythical creatures.
Though they come in many shapes and sizes, all amulets have one thing in common: they bring some kind of benefit to the wearer. Love, luck, money, career advancement, protection from danger, avoidance of backstabbers, improved charisma—these are all to gain from the right amulet.
I can’t say for sure whether these amulets actually have magical powers. It’s possible, of course, but I can’t guarantee that they will bring you love, luck, or money. I am convinced, however, that they all have the magical power of reminding you of your trip to Thailand.
