While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok,
it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn
the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and
most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to
this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off
their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most
spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to

Unfortunately I haven´t seen anyone to sell in Bangkok. Probably is dificult to find handmade puppets. Maybe you can try in ToyRus, the famous toy´s department store from England. There are in Bangkok too.
