Oh yes, Thailand has great cars too!

Honestly, I found my place in the sun in Thailand. I go mad when I;m there, means you should see me in a thai mood. And do not be like my lovely girlfriend who thinks it's because of the ladies. It's not.

I love Thailand. The people, language, smells, food, culture, sun, sea, sand everything. I'm teaching myself the language too. If anyone needs any help in Thailand or in planning a holiday there, do let me know, I would be happy to help.

Thanks for the lovely pictures and the smile Rishi. Glad you had a good time there.

Khob bun krup!

You just wrote something I tried to explain to a friend the other day. They all think Im in love with the place because of the "women". Thats only because they dont know there is so much more to see and do.

I dont know why but I feel at home in the Land of Smiles

Thats well said s0uljah.... Did you happen to rent one of those beauties... My mouth watered whenever i used to pass any bike rental shops. they has such a wide range.... from 100 CC scooters to superbikes and bling bling cruisers...I ended up commuting on a 100 CC Honda (the ones without a clutch)... But the country is too good...

Why not? Last time I was there I rented an R1 for 900 baht and promptly went ahead & crapped my pants when she hit 5500 rpm in 3rd gear! It was great fun as we were 4 guys & another friend had rented a Honda 400cc cruiser which had a great "phat-phat" soundtrack! Really enjoyed riding the bikes around!

Well to be frank I really wanted to but I was a lil scared as to whether I will be able to handle it or not and didnt wanna end up in a hospital in a foreign country ... But next time I go I will definitely try ...

You must. Contrary to public opinion, a well made big cruiser is easier to handle than a 100cc motorcycle. The design makes the COG lower to the ground and it becomes easier to handle. Incredible when you consider the weight of the creatures.

I wouldn't suggest a 1litre bike for first timers.
Then,rent a 400 on the first day and a 600cc the next day.
And if U're still scared,stay 3000 rpm below the redline(this i can't).

The 911 is hot and my favourite. But really, it may be termed carland with so many normal and modified versions all around the place.

Wow..the cars were really awesome. It would have been really one hell of a experience standing so close to a Lamborghini. Thailand is in my wish list as well.

Posting a few shots that I clicked during my recent Thailand tour. It was just casual photography, hence please pardon the non-pro look in the pictures:
