Self service 24 hour laundromats

Black and white photographs of self service 24 hour laundromats. The first two photos document a couple of  coin operated laundromats in Taman Tun Dr. Ismail a township in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The final photo in the series features a laundromat in Siem Reap – Cambodia. I took this photo while on holiday in 2013.

Laundromats are popular in KL due to being open 24 hours. Doing the weeks washing with free WIFI, while eating a snack from a nearby restaurant sounds like a good idea.

“It’s great that it’s open 24 hours so we can come and wash the laundry when it isn’t so packed.”
