A few gardening shops around Chatuchak Market offer inexpensive, young Bonsai which you can use to practice your tending skills. Full-grown bonsai are expensive, sometimes with prices running into five figures. Buying a full grown Bonsai is less rewarding, since you can't enjoy the hobby without the knowledge and understanding of the techniques to maintain its shape and health.
