    where to fly quick trip, somewhere different?

    Not yet as far as I can see. And a very restrictive visa policy. Neither visa free for Thais nor for UK citizens. eVisa very expensive. Hardly a destination for a quick visa/border run.

    What is better? Cars made in Thailand or foreign imports?

    Toyota, a niche product can easily be forgotten
  3. ? Without the latter hint I would not understand where this happened. 5 am, most venues on Walking Street closed. The Russian is perfectly adapted. Drunk driving, causing accident, trying a runner
  4. https://www.thaivisa.com/forum/forum/234-latest-offers-with-villa-market/ The OP has answered his own question. It's advertisement and the advertiser will probably not like comments except "brilliant".
  5. Thanks for reminding. Nitpickers. So guest friendly. Every person holding a European license is 10 times better qualified for driving than the average Somchai. The latest twist I read: there should be a way to get a 1926 (!) IDP on request (valid for one year) which they would have to accept. Call it the Model-T license (I read this in a German language newsletter and can't swear on it) Good that you had a backup. In some cases of harassment described I suggest to better do a new license from scratch.

    Looking to rent a moving van

    Self drive? Usually foreigners don't have the necessary driving license. I must admit that I don't know the exact limitations for "Personal car" as the usual driving license is called (in Germany is was allowed to drive a 3.5 tons small truck with a car license). For the rest you are simply right. Can't remember seen anything like a self drive moving truck.

    90 day report Chonburi Immigration

    I have bumped your separate thread hoping that you get some more input.

    If you refer to Thai immigration this 15 day limitation is long gone (since years). As a UK citizen he gets 30 days also at land borders.
  9. Could probably be simplified: Chonburi Immigration 5/265 Moo 12 Jomtien Beach rd. Soi 5 A. Bang Lamung T. Nongprue Chonburi 20150
  10. Bumping the thread? No one? As far as I know Pattaya/Chonburi immigration accepts 90 day report by postal mail. A list of documents is described here: http://bangkok.immigration.go.th/en/base.php?page=90days Just trying to find the correct address...
  11. " between Chantanburi and Isan " Chanthaburi to Isan is a concrete example? Isan being an area of about 160'000 km2, north/south about 500 km, east/west about 400 km. And the topic starter didn't come back to the thread. Unfortunately a very frequent annoyance. Often I ride 50% of dead horses. Just a waste of time. This thread has zero value for me.

    Renew 5 Year Driving Licence

    I haven't followed your story but: For a 5 yr to 5 yr extension there is NO medical certificate required. For 2 yr to 5 yr a medical certificate IS required.

    going to france

    There is quite a difference between girl friend and legally married (and registered in your home country). OP: I assume that you are French national? I can't speak about France but know that Switzerland has much a much easier procedure if legally married.

    Then your through. Where else? I wouldn't call Seoul quick. Otherwise it fits the requirement for visa free.

    But no problem for me with Khaosod English or Chiang Rai Times. TV is indeed a mess again. Erratic.
