      Drive in Thailand without an international driving licence?

      Thailand Dec 19, 2016 at 6:36 AM


      I've a special demand this time to visit Thailand. I'm french if it's not written on my page and I'm renewing my driving licence after I lost it in a train... The administration in INCREDIBLY slow and I'm not sure if my national french driving licence will be ready on time before I go to Thailand... Plus if I have to make an INTERNATIONAL driving licence which is going to take 2 extra weeks... Needless to say I'm in a hurry.

      I know it's not legal to use only my FRENCH driving licence (if I've it on time!) but I wanted to rent a car (through the agency Thai Rent A Car for example)... But do you know if those rental cars companies ask to see your INTERNATIONAL driving licence at the offices when you come to get the car or is it ok if you just show your own national driving licence?

      I'm not talking about the fines if I encounter a picky Thai policeman, it's ok I can deal with it. But can I rent a car in Thailand simply with my NATIONAL driving licence?

      Thank you a lot! :)

      Mobile Coverage for Car Navigation in Chiang Rai

      by Melanie_Putra Online Now Dec 6, 2014 at 3:31 AM

      I'll be renting car from Avis and driving from Chiang Mai to Chiang Rai in January. Will require GPS or Google Maps to visit these places:

      Le Meridien Chiang Rai
      Wat Rong Khun
      Wat Phra Keow
      Baan Si Dam (พิพิธภัณฑ์บ้านดำ)
      Chivit Thammada Cafe
      Chiang Rai Clock Tower
      Haad Chiang Rai (หาดเชียงราย)

      Avis rents out Garmin but I know that Garmin is quite lacking when it comes to destinations.
      I can buy the Thai SIM card with Data Plan in order to use Google Maps (I already found and saved all the above locations in "My Maps" inside the Google Maps of my iPhone. The thing is, which service provider is the best for Coverage up in Chiang Rai? I don't want to go up there to only find out there is no coverage. Thus, can't use the navigation. We would be hopelessly lost!!

      To book driver in advance or to join tour?

      by doraem66 Online Now Nov 7, 2013 at 6:48 PM

      I have 2 days in Chiang Rai, would like to F&E on the first day and have a day tour on the second day.
      I will be going alone or maybe with another friend in Jan 2014..

      Should I just walk in to join a tour there or to book a driver in advance?
      Saw some forums booking a private driver/ guide cost near 4000THB?
      How much will it be if I book the day tour there?

      I'm interested to see Mae Salong tea plantation, White Temple, Black House, if possible add in a river raft.
      Is 2 days sufficient in Chiang Rai?
      I may be able to stretch another day in Chiang Rai.

      Currently I have Chiang Mai 4 days, Mae Hong Son 1 day, Pai 1 day, Chiang Rai 2 days.
