The OTOP exhibition is a reoccurring event that takes place at the IMPACT Arena in Muang Thong Thani. It’s main aim is to stimulate and promote locally made products.
OTOP stands for One Tambon One Product. A commission selects one superior product from every Tambon(Sub district) to exhibit at the OTOP fair. All products go trough a thorough selection process to ensure only the highest quality products get branded as a “starred OTOP product”.
Products of Otop
The displayed products have a large variety, including traditional handicrafts, pottery, beauty products, household items, silk and cotton garments, fashion accessories, and food. Every producer displays their products in a stall with a sign including the name of the represented district. The fair is classified by types of products and each have there own sections.
I definitely recommend a visit to the OTOP. It is a great way to find quality products from every little corner in Thailand, and buy them at discount prices. The fair is a very popular day out for Thai families, in weekends expect some extra travelling time due to traffic.
