Thailand has long been associated with counterfeit designers goods. You name it, you can get a copy at a fraction of the price. A definite God sent to all fashionable young ladies with a lean income. I’m sure that every fashion conscious Thai, owns at least one counterfeit Louis Vuitton! But I bet you didn’t know that there is a museum dedicated to showing counterfeit goods, did you?
Yes, it’s true and this has been legitimised! The museum is housed at the Tilleke & Gibbins, one of the oldest international law firm in Thailand. Isn’t that just too much! A law firm specialised in intellectual property law, has an on-site museum dedicated to counterfeit goods!
Reading the blurb you get from the museum, the firm inherited so many counterfeit items from their cases that the partners decide they might as well create a museum!
This is a must visit place, at least once! And if you think that the exhibits only limit to fashion items then you are wrong! Here are just examples of what else are on display.
And even …
