I want to buy something from the UK and I don't want to ship the item. Specifically, they are shoes. I have many stories how long things that were sent from overseas to Thailand got myteriously lost. Many speculated that Thailand post office staff are responsible for the missing of the items because they are the people who have been given a full authority to inspect the item. I'm scared and would rather have someone from the UK bring it for me....... Even though I can ship my item to Thailand via FedEx or UPS, the item will be taxed so heavily. However, if that is my last option, I would have no choice.
