Tailor in Bangkok

by merin81

Hi there!

I will be visiting Bangkok the next couple of weeks and would like to have a tailored suit made for me. Any tips on where to go and how much this would cost?

Re: Tailor in Bangkok

Depends on what you want to spend. You can get a $100 suit made.
Raja's Fashions.....roughly $300/suit is where I go when in Bangkok:

.....anyway in Bangkok (and Thai) you've not to look a lot for a tailor, they found you first :lol:

Re: Tailor in Bangkok

I would suggest that you pay a little more than the "2 suit and 6 shirts for $___" as what will be the point if the suits fall apart. You will need at LEAST 3-4 fittings IMO if you want something that looks nice. If they tell you that you can have it overnight....PASS!!!
Also some recommendations: wear a shirt when you get fitted(tee shirts do not do the job/do NOT let the tailor tell you what to get...if you have ideas, voice them/take your time picking the fabric and lining, etc/wear shoes if you can(I didn't but got my pant lengths re-tailored a bit at home/etc.

A basic suit will start from about £60 but is not much to look at, in the end I paid about £100 for my suit but only ever worn once. Plenty of tailors in Bangkok you won't have a problem getting a suit, all are run by indians.

The price can really vary!! If it is a suit that you will wear often or for work...I would splurge! You can tell the quality and fit/cut when you buy a good quality suit...

Just my two satang,...

Unless you personally know someone who gives you a personal recommendation, I would pass on Bangkok tailoring.

Yes, there are good tailors. But, the odds of a tourist finding them are about the same as those that that bargirl really loves you!

Re: Tailor in Bangkok

Personal recommendation-Rajas. I am at work now and have on one of their suits.....

Re: Tailor in Bangkok

by expatbangkok

I am still looking .... and I have tried Rajas and the buttons fell off. Myself and another friend who has been here for 19 years now by off the rack at Central, Emporium etc.
If someone has some genuine experience with a good tailor in Bangkok and it isn't one of the dozen or so that I have tried, then I am more than willing to give them a go

Re: Tailor in Bangkok

by cgf

there is a very good tailor shop with not a lot of work to do lately as it seems Joseph changes tailor, someone can make a try.
just google "Annibale Gammarelli"

Travel Tips for Bangkok

Dentist

by malacay66

I have been there one time to have a Crown and some veneers and i was very pleased with the service. I have also brought my mother there, and she was also happy with the service. Would recommend them to anyone.

Take a roll of toilet paper with you!

by heryanta

Uhm, this is not 'my favourite thing' as the header of the tip form suggests but:

When you are going to go and see the city, take a roll of toilet paper with you.
Although the modern part of Bangkok offers toilet papers in the restrooms, many local places outside the expat/city center area do not. Most locals still use water to clean up so it is always advised that you bring a roll with you when you leave your hotel to go see the city.

I remember my first week there, I had to (literally) run to the toilet at Seacon Square; a modern shopping mall but located outside the center. I learnt the hard way that there was no toilet paper in the toilet itself! I learnt later that there are vending machines in the sink area that sells toilet papers for 2 Baht ... would have been nice to know beforehand huh?

So, don't make the same mistake I did - bring a roll with you!

Continuation of: Part 2: Getting an operation in B

by balisunshine

For payment of the surgery,
it is requested approval from your insurance
if it is a way of payment, credit card
or a cash transfer to their account.

So a few days later,
I went into surgery for bone grafting,
plates and screws, to be installed into my tibia.

On that same day,
I would be checking in as
an in-house patient within the hospital.
Depending on your budget,
there are various selections for

In-house Patient Accommodations.

I won’t go into the
prior-operation sentiments and personal fears,
but post-operation,
I was wheeled into my room,
high on Euphoria/Morphine
to relieve me of any pain.
It lasted for a couple of days.

Being in that total dependant physical state,
I sure did appreciate all the nurses right there if needed.
Just at the click of the buzzered.
From bathing, to feeding, to medications
to all the healing and assistance, it was all provided.
5-stars for service!

On the third day,
the physiotherapist already started treatment
with a special machine used for the knee.

The Bumrungrad Residence

I remained as an in-house patient for 1 week,
before we transferred to

The Bumrungrad Residence.

For post operations,
this may be the best place to stay,
since there is direct access from the Residence
to the Hospital without any need to go on the road.

Again, rooms are a bit drab,
but because of the convenience
of it being attached to the hospital,
made it worth it.
Here, we could open the window and had a terrace.

We were even able to get a high floored room,
with a nice evening skyline view.

Here we stayed another 10 days. Getting something to eat

Breakfast is not included at the Residence,
not any other meals.
Your room comes equipped
with a fridge and some basic utensils.
There is the food court
located at the mezzanine of the hospital
and some additional places to eat on the 10th floor
but food, again…is something
that is not of the healthiest kind.

In these food courts
there is an array of choices,
including a fresh juice bar.
But if you believe in healing through nutrition,
this does not take priority here.

Prices are higher than what you would find on the street,
but in my state…I wasn’t much in a mood for restaurant seeking.

The Price

The cost at Bumrungrad Hospital is
probably cheaper than what
one would find in the USA or even in Singapore.
But most probably more expensive to
some of the other hospitals in Thailand.

Prior to the operation,
you will pay consultation fees separately.
Then prior to the operation,
you will be given a global estimate
of the cost of your in-house patient stay.
You will be required to
have this available prior to your operation.
And money left over,
will be returned.
But then if you need any
follow up treatments or consultations,
this will be billed separately.

I chose to come to Bumrungrad
since I was already familiar with the hospital,
and I felt safe with being operated here.

When it comes to medications, any special equipment,
like bandages, etc if you can,
have them bought outside of the hospital.
You may save up to 50%.
That was our case…when possible.

After close to three weeks,
I was given permission to fly back to Bali,
along with recommendations on
what to do to continue healing
and a complete CD-Rom
with all that was done on me.

Smoking

by Jewey

although you can smoke in public, be sure not to put your stubs on the floor otherwise you will find yourself carted off the the local police station at the corner of the street, use the disignated bins.

Expressions of Emotion

by machomikemd

Thais admire serenity and regard overt expressions of emotion as immature and unsightly.

This is especially true in the case of anger or impatience. If you show anger, you will immediately lose the respect of Thais. Their first reaction will be to laugh at you, in the hope that you too will remind yourself of the absurdity of trying to solve anything in this way. You still have time to smile off your momentary lapse.

If you persist in being angry, Thais will simply disappear - in order to leave time for the childish hothead to cool off and grow up.This can be hard to adjust to. In general, Western cultures are prepared to accept that if someone has become angry, they may have a point to make and should at least be listened to. In Thailand this simply isn’t the case. If you have a point to make, you will have to make it with quiet non-aggressive eloquence and show potential goodwill to the person you are talking to throughout.
