  1. You keep referring to an IDL. Do you actually mean IDL (International Driving Licence) or IDP (International Driving Permit)? There's a big difference.
  2. I rented a car in Italy last year using my Thai licence. No problems. I can't remember which rental company it was, but it was one of the international companies. I haven't been asked for an IDP (it's a permit, not a licence) anywhere for many, many years.
  3. My Thai girlfriend and I (I'm British) have rented cars in the USA several times over the past few years. All the rental companies we used accepted, without question, both our Thai licences.
  4. You're wrong. It's currently 15 million baht. Please check your facts before posting misinformation like this.
  5. Why do you think it's "Less than 1 per cent a year"? I think you must be confused.
  6. Not Lloyds, but this may give you a bit more confidence to believe what customer services have told you: In 2015, I wrote to Nationwide and asked them if I would be able to retain my account and change my UK address to a Thailand one. This is the reply I got: "Yeah of course you can. If you could let us know your new address, I will be more than happy to get this changed for you. While having a registered overseas address, you would not be able to open any new accounts, but you can still keep your current accounts with us." Shortly after receiving this reply, I did an online change of address with no problems.
  7. Overtaking on the left? It's perfectly legal to overtake on the left when there are two (or more) lanes travelling in the same direction. From the Thai Traffic Act, B.E. 2522 (1979): Section 45 (400-1000B) [No driver shall overtake another vehicle from the left-side unless: a. the vehicle to be overtaken is making a right turn or has given a signal that he is going to make a right turn. b. the roadway is arranged with two or more traffic lanes in the same direction.]
  8. This may be of interest: http://phuketcoffeelab.com/about/
  9. Thanks for your interesting reply. But when I said, "If Thai immigration doesn't reciprocate, I wonder will my girlfriend's existing 10 year visa be cancelled?" I was speculating about my girlfriend’s, 10 year, U.S.A. tourist/visitor visa.
  10. If Thai immigration doesn't reciprocate, I wonder will my girlfriend's existing 10 year visa be cancelled?
  11. Sounds like a great idea - not! I'm outa here!
  12. Ah! That makes all the difference (that you were going to take over the company.) If you had stated that in your opening post we all could have saved ourselves posting nonsense. Taking over a company is not wise (too many risks) and your financial advisor should have advised you of that.
  13. "You do not need a company to buy buildings only land" Yes, I understand that. But there's no reason why a company can't own a house - and the company ownership would have been discovered in the land office when it was time to sign the standard "sale of a structure document" - which is signed 30 days before the completion.
  14. "Maybe just looking for a person believing to buy both house and land ?" This would never have worked as the ownership of the land would have been discovered in the land office when it was time to sign the standard "sale of a structure document" - which is signed 30 days before the completion I don't understand what could have gone wrong for the buyer. Maybe I'm missing something.
