    ermm i wun recommend u to self drive in BKK... the traffic there is madness and the traffic directions looks very confusing... not to forget... the massive traffic jams.

    Hi Sinned,

    agree with you, last time i managed directions blindly following my GPS, this time i have a friend there who is going to drive me around so i can concentrate on my camera

    You'll have more opportunity to shoot if you take a train to the malaysia/thai border.
    Make your way to various places using local transport, including Thai rail. And at the end fly home.
    Less tiring and you can focus on visiting places and shooting.

    Hi Shierwin,

    Thanks for the advise completely agree with you, but this trip is 50% driving and 50% photography, we are going in a group of 4 cars.
