"Just looking around" in a shop

Postby Naga » Fri May 19, 2017 12:09 pm

Many time when I'm in a shop I'm really am just looking around. It's usually the wife who is shopping.

So what colloquial Thai phrase would you use to convey that I don't need any help and that, as we would say to an English speaking shop keeper, "I'm just looking around."
