Old Yay Tar Shay Street, Yangon, Burma

Repairs of shoes and umbrellas – instantaneously for smaller fixes or over night. Very competitive prices, but communication needs Burmese language basics or travellers’ pantomime.

Fast, good and cheap

This man fixed a shoe (he sewed it in 10 minutes) and a broken umbrella (took 2 days since he needed to organize some spare parts) for a tiny fee. I still use both after one year: The sandal looks like new, the umbrella has a “creative” wire construction inside since it was totally broken. The service was very friendly.

The only problem is that I haven’t figured out how to contact him. You just can meet him at that place. I think he was there every day from 9 am to the evening. Not sure about weekends.
