      Drive in Thailand without an international driving licence?

      Thailand Dec 19, 2016 at 6:36 AM

      Hello!

      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! :)

    • Where to change money safely (+ good rates if possible) in Bangkok?

      Bangkok Dec 22, 2016 at 2:32 AM

      Hello,

      I will visit Bangkok next month, and I'm a bit afraid of all the money exchange related scams. What are some money changers in Bangkok who are trustworthy and offer good rates?

      Thank you!

      BAAN CHAYNA (SURIN BEACH, PHUKET) HOW TO

      by Meeriah Online Now Mar 15, 2013 at 1:55 AM

      A spur of the moment decision to fly to Phuket next month (April 2013) with my 13 yr old daughter, a weekend getaway if I may say and an advance birthday gift for her. It was a preference to stay a little bit farther away from the crowd in Patong Beach, I was actually hoping we can get a hotel in Karon/Kata area, but next thing I know I was already booking BAAN CHAYNA HOTEL/RESORT which is located in SURIN BEACH. I know nothing about the place and so as most of my friends who’s gone through a Phuket trip as most of them stayed in either Patong or Kata areas.

      Has anyone of you stayed in this hotel before? They have good reviews, that I know, but I am more worried about transfers to and fro, how accessible is the place to where the piers are to start off the island tours? It was a bit of a challenge to do research online as most of the tourists sharing their experiences mostly stayed in the most commonly known tourist areas (Patong/Kata/Karon) and not Surin. HELP!

    • Surin hotel info

      by mpowell Online Now Feb 13, 2009 at 4:00 AM

      Hi there,

      I have a friend who is getting married at the Chedi in Surin in Feb 2010 and will be travelling out there with my wife and 2 children ( 7 years and 2 1/2 years ) from the UK.

      firstly, Can anyone recommend any good places to stay that offer good value and are good for children.

      Perhaps there are nearby towns that are in easy travelling distance that may also have some good hotels.

      Perhaps a villa anywhere as there will be other people coming out from the UK as this may bring down costs.

      Thank you...
