Re: Disability Parking Permit

I was parked next to a van in a disabled bay at BigC in Bangkok today. A nice big wheelchair emblem on the sliding side door. Could not get to the bottom of it, but the waiting driver was very happy to give me a demo of the hydraulic lift seat that swings out. As far as I could gather, the following...

There is this post: viewtopic.php?t=17644

Re: Minivan, bus and road accidents

I don't think any Thai driver or transport company owner here could even comprehend the concept or the reasoning.
Yes, I watched that.

Is there a shop selling air rifles in Hua Hin?
Proper air rifles require a licence the same as any other firearm. There used to be a gun shop right close to the original Bangkok Bank on Petchkasem Rd.

Re: RE: Re: Hua Hin Airport to Operate International Flights by End 2017

that was a yr. ago, I just checked and there aren't any now. why is there an airport here? It's used by private planes, and the military also uses it. For instance, when they're conducting parachute training, their planes sometimes (perhaps always?) take off from there. Very few private planes in T...

I do not know if the following is of any use, but at around 20 Euros it does not seem expensive. Just watch out for scams with this, as the only authorised places are automobile clubs in each country. https://www.wikiprocedure.com/index.php/Austria_-_Apply_for_International_Driver_License_(Interstat...

It just needs to be set up before building. I also believe that you can do it with an existing building, but it is a bit more invo...

I assume that there is some form of interface equipment in the box, but the "technician" that I asked(several years ago), had no idea how ...
