    Probably any Robinson's department store does them, but I always get my passport photos done at the Robinsons near Asok (Sukhumvit area)... go downstairs to the Tops supermarket and foodcourt area and you will see the photo place.

    The photos I've had done there have always been excellent quality and they're very cheap. There's a choice of formats and for 180B (under 3 quid) you will probably have more than enough passport photos for the next few years.

    barrylad66, try this:

    Get your passport/visa photo onto a memory stick
    while in the UK. Bring the stick with you to Thailand.

    Once here, hand that to the girl at the photomat
    inside a Tesco, or nearby Robinson's (as SBE
    has suggested), and tell her how many.

    Passport-sized pics come in a set of 6, and it's
    only 15 baht only? Something like this. Very cheap, anyway. 50 cents U.S., or 25p in real money.

    2"x2" preferred with, importantly, a blue background.

    Right. Apparel.

    Any mall setup is what SBE meant. There you will find
    a little photo store; not a Kodak, but lesser known.

    Any photo shop, and there's heaps - will take a set for you......some things like work permits require a LARGER PHOTO.
