Like wine, honey conveys a distinctive terroir - the earth, sunshine and flora of a place - in the primitive yet provocative raw material of buzzing bees. Honey is good for health and, unlike wine, it comes in tiny and modern jars, which is why it is such a great souvenir to bring back home.
In Chiang Mai Golden Bee Shop presents a large selection of quality honey products, bee pollen, royal jelly and cosmetics made of honey. One of their latest and best saler article is Longan Honey. Packed in a cute and easy to use 160g package, it makes the perfect souvenir for family and friends (65 THB).
If you enjoy honey and wonder about longan honey benefits for your health, you should know that it is a powerful antioxidant and antimicrobial. Longan fruit, also called the ‘dragon’s eye”, is a common fruit in Asia but relatively new and exotic in Europe.
Golden Bee Shop is easy to find: located in the old city, it is at walking distance to the Three Kings Monuments, at the corner opposite the old women prison. The shop also offers honey drinks and delicious Thai cuisine to enjoy everyday from 8 am to 6 pm.
