    Tailors in Karn Beach

    by easterntrekker Written Jun 12, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are tailors everywhere in Karon beach. We realised when we went to Bangkok later ...the prices were pretty good in Karon Beach .
    The best thing to do is get fitted at the beginning of your stay as it is best to allow as much time as possible.

    What to buy: We both had tops and pants made . We mailed it back and it was here before we were.

    What to pay: You can barter!! The prices are great!! My husband had a tux made . Shirt , tie vest and all was $ 250.00!!

    Street vendors: Prices are not set in stone!!!

    by Sympatico Written Jan 26, 2004

    You can negotiate the price of everything when dealing with the local street shops. Nothing is set in stone so look around and get and ask questions. Things are very cheap in Thailand so most people don't bother and pay the first price given. Also, shops around the beaches are a lot more expensive than if you were to go further inland in the city of Phuket. There is supposed to be a big market but I didn't go to it.

    What to buy: There are so many souvenirs to pick up, go crazy!
