Stanley Market Hong Kong is famous for silks, both by the yard or made up clothing. In Thailand, Pattaya has many, many tailors who will sell you silk or make up fashions for Ladies or Gents. Myself & the wife have had numerous items made up in Pattaya, shirts, blouses suits, slacks, fabulous quality at prices 25% of UK. The famous street for shops such as this & everything else is called Walking Street (google it) & most are open till about midnight....Wilba.

I should add Singapore is famous for the 24 hour tailor.

Thanks once again Wilba, I will be taking several of your printed replies with me. Walking Street looks interesting - a bit like Patpong in Bangkok - will visit there (although I may have to put blinkers on my husband!) and Stanley Market in a quest for silk. Cheers.

I have responded but the auto moderation kicked in. It thinks foreign towns are some form of swearing. Have a look tomorrow.......Wilba.

We have been to Thailand often and they sell beautiful silkin many colours so if you go to Bangkok you will find plenty silk shops. Have a great time.

It is a very small place with a population is around 3500. It is an area situated at the base the Maritime Alps along the French Riviera.

Celebrity Edge Looks Incredible!

By Freddie Moser

Freddie Moser's blog

So yesterday afternoon I was lucky to attend an online preview of some of the accommodation and facilities aboard Celebrity Cruises most ambitious ship ever built; Celebrity Edge….I’ll be honest when I first heard the name of the ship, I thought it was an awful choice. However it’s since grown on me, and after watching the presentation, I now see the logic in the name Edge.You see this ship is first and foremost all about design and technology, so phrases like ‘Cutting...

Betsy Davies's blog

Well I have just returned from my first ever visit to a River cruise ship. What a way to start!!! I visited the AmaPrima and Ama are rated the highest standard of ships in Europe according to the Berlitz guide.I flew to Amsterdam and we got picked up by a brand new AMA coach and transferred the short distance to the centre of city to meet the ship, the first eye opener for me was exactly how near to the centre of the town the ship was. If I am being really honest I really didn’t know w...
