When I lived in Chiang Mai, everything I bought in the local markets had rubber bands. I had a hook in my kitchen to hang them on, dozens of them.

Now I'm in Chiang Rai, there is a famine of rubber bands. Nary a one to be seen on anything I buy. I'm suffering from withdrawal symptoms.

Is this a cultural difference between the two cities? Is there a rubber-eating golem on the 118? Should I apply for a work permit to import them for obscene profits? Can some kind soul tell me why is it so?

All of the local markets I go to still seal plastic bags with rubber bands unless they have built in handles then they just tie them off.

The big market up from the clock tower with a smaller white clock tower only seems to have the handle type.

The peanut lady around in the Western entrance seals her wares with rubberbands.

Sorry, no. - But I feel with you.

You should bring your own rubber bands,

bought on the local market.

May be the photo helps?

Usually 5 Baht/bag.
