Thailand Car Ownership
2/26/2011 7:00 PM By  BkkSteve  

There is no question owning your own car in Thailand carries some risk, or that it can be dangerous, and that the stresses can easily become an issue. However, if you learn all you can about the system, anticipate as many issues as possible ahead of time where you have the time to think them through, and you exercise good judgment, you should be fine.

Some look confused, others lost, and the occasional guy will see you looking and sheepishly shrug as if to say “I should know better..”

Recently I’ve realized something. If you’d asked me what was my favorite time of year in Thailand I would have said from mid-December through the end of February. And indeed these are the coolest most comfortable months. What I realized, is that Thailand being so hot and humid most of the year, when we get a few cool months I just naturally assumed they were my favorite months.

Perhaps the major disadvantage is that Thai’s never learn the necessary social and analytical skills for calm, rational, and reasoned resistance. The ability to rationally and effectively present your position is the hallmark of citizens of civilized countries. Thai’s generally are very ‘obedient’ and ‘unquestioning’ of authority or even general harassment.
