Products made by Thai inmates have a good reputation for quality and price. Fairs are held annually around the country and they are always well attended. From my own experience, it is a good idea to go during the opening days as the best products get snapped up fast. But return on the last days for clearance sales. Taking place this weekend in Phuket is the 9th Prison Inmate Art and Craft Fair for the 14 provinces in Southern Thailand. It is open from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. from 15th to 22nd June 2012 at Saphan Hin, Muang district of Phuket.
