One of many curb-side sewing services offered around Bangkok.

The little, unique things about Bangkok make me love it more and more each day! As a traveler, I don't often have access to a sewing machine to repair the occasional shirt or hem a new pair of jeans. Introducing yet another affordable Thai street-service that facilitates the life of a single unmarried person.

A curb-side seamstress stitches a woman's dress on the sidewalk of a busy street in Bangkok.

The service is completely and utterly affordable! I had a pair of khakis converted into shorts which cost 20 baht, approximately US$0.66. And sometimes, they'll do the job while you wait!
