Slide Gem market Beginning of the expedition of Chanthaburi Leaving Cambodia, passing through Banpuggard which marks the border with Thailand, we head to Chanthaburi, a must-see place for the gem market. We are on the Chanthaburi gem market. The tables are arranged in the street, a poster is stuck on the window behind us indicating to the traders what we want. We were mainly trying to reach the contacts for the mines.

To our surprise, we were taken to a flea market with old furniture. Then hidden in the back room, a door gave access to a courtyard in which there was a workshop for heating rubies mainly from Africa.
Silom road Bangkok, the merchants pass by Silom road, a high place where the stones come from all the continents cross.
