Joy's Bangkok Travel Notes

Bangkok is one of the most popular holiday destination among my friends, and definitely one of my "to-visit" places. And why not? It's near (to SIngapore), it's cheap (with all those great Bangkok deals). But best of all, it's where you shop for bags, clothes and shoes at steal prices. And after that, indulge in a Thai massage, before you tuck into some spicy Thai food.

Joy's Notes on Bangkok Tailors

Here are some tips if you plan to visit a tailor in Bangkok:
  • If you travel regularly to Bangkok, it’s best to make just one suit or shirt the first time. Observe how the suit carries over time, whether it keeps it shape after washing or dry cleaning, whether the colour stays, etc. If you are happy with the suit, then go back to the same tailor again on your next trip.
  • Don’t go by prices alone when choosing a tailor.  You really pay for what you get.  Avoid ‘special deals’ like two shirts, two suits and two ties for just $99.
  • Ignore recommendations from anyone that may have a vested interest in bringing you to a particular store, like a tuk tuk driver.
  • As a rough guide, you may pay B5000 – 6000 for labour alone, for a two-piece suit.  This is if you use an average material. For top-notch materials, you may pay up to 4 times more.
  • Opt for English or Italian cloth. Bringing your own material will save you lots.
  • Insist on two fittings.
  • Most tailors take 3 – 10 days to produce.
  • Give as much details as you can (e.g single or double-breasted, number of buttons, style of trousers..)
  • For cheap and reasonable shirt and dress material other than silk, look around Phahurat
