Thai teak : The expensive wood in the world market
Teak is an economically valueable wood in Thailand due to high quality. It is needed by foreign countries. It is a multi-purpose wood it used to build a house, every part of it can be used from the floor column to the roof, even in place of the tile used for roof. Moreover, it is very durable with sunlight and rain resistance, without any temite. The wood is soft and can be easily crafted. Its color is beautiful and can be used for house construction with long working life. Several temples in northern region are made from the teak. Although their lives are over 400 years, they are in a good condition. More information about Thai teak.
