Propane torch availability in Thailand


I have recently moved to Kho Phan Gan, Thailand. I would like to have
a simple propane or Mapp gas torch for my studio here. Where can I
find the typiccal 14.1 ounce disposable canisters we call " plumbing
torches" in Canada? Do they have them here? Can anyone recommend
options for torches in thailand? I live ina remot area of the island
so want something fairly simple for small scale studio production,
but bigger than butane.

Thanks for any recommendations offered!
