Re: Up to date info on drivers license

Just tell the immigrations that you will need papers for obtaining a drivers license, and they will issue the right paper to you, and you can use the local one in Udonthani

Udon has some traffic problems too, but they are minimal, the air is much better here, the only thing I'm missing is theate...

monthly visa-run limit (30-days stamp)

I can not understand why you not has appiled for a 90 days visa in your home country, it could save you for a lot of trouble, and it would probably be much more cheaper than visa runs. You must have had an idea how long time you would spend here in Thailand.
