Re: Parking for the weak hearted

As someone pointed out to me a few years back, Thai drivers don't park. They just stop driving.

Re: 120 kph?

Not surprised , judging by comments about driving lessons. Changing down ( aka Roadcraft Manual ) taught to Traffic Police Officers, enables you to maintain control of the vehicle when turning or overtaking , including when coming to crowded area, so the gears are also an addition to stomping on th...

Re: Udon Traffic

I just did the slow crawl from the Nittayo flyover to the Nong Bua intersection and traffic was steadily moving despite being down to single-lane on both sides. Discipline at both sets of lights was OK with nobody rushing to block the intersection on a red. They had a backhoe digging out the newly c...

Re: renew drivers license

Thanks for that clarification. Just to further dilute the YMMV factor, did you have a Thai DL before you acquired the yellow book and pink card? If so, they may have used your passport number originally and then changed it to the locally issued ID during a subsequent renewal? Yes - initially used m...

Re: renew drivers license

It sounds like it could depend on which office you attend. In my case, all my licence interactions have been at Nong Han. Thanks for that clarification.

World Beer Index 2021

There's a lot of complaints about inflated beer prices in Thailand and some like to quote how beer is a lot cheaper in the Philippines. According to this, it's only about half a buck a bottle cheaper. Unfortunately, there's no data from Myanmar, Laos, Vietnam or Cambodia. https://www.visualcapitalis...

Re: renew drivers license

A Thai persons national ID number is also entered on their Thai DL. A foreigners passport number is used for personal ID on their Thai DL. My first Thai DL was acquired before I got a yellow book. At the last renewal, over 5 years ago, I brought my yellow book and pink ID card but they didn't use th...
