Aussies be aware that wood products need to be declared on entry to Oz....if it carries signs of parasites or desease, it will be destroyed by Customs.

Went there yesterday. Basically, if I saw everything, it's one single, long soi lined with small, hole-in-the-wall furniture shops. So it's very easy to go through it all. The proper name for the street is Soi Prachanarumit in the Bang Po part of Bang Sue. But for me the easiest way to get there was to take the subway to Bang Sue station (the end-of-the-line). And then get in a taxi or tuk tuk and ask for 'Soi Furniture.' Should be no more than a 40 baht ride.

I came there looking for a basic, cushioned, quality armless chair like the following:

The best quoted price I saw for this (I didn't try to haggle) was 2000 baht. I know this is quite a bit less than at MBK but I don't know if this is the best deal I ought to be reasonably able to find in Bangkok.
