Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.
A GREAT idea an will cut down on the Chinese who rent bikes and who have no clue what they are dong on a motorcycle...
Tourists renting motorcycles is on the agenda for changes to lower the death toll on Thailand's roads from accidents involving motorbikes.
A high level meeting was told that many tourists are dying on the nation's roads.
Up until now tourists could easily rent a motorcycle by just showing a passport, said The Bangkok Insight.
Now the proposal is to require that tourists are in possession of a valid licence when they rent.
