Actually what you should do if you plan to go into Thailand has been uploaded in my website gallery. Why we choose Thailand for our family trip? The overall cost is cheaper, cheaper than what is to be spent on similar places in our own land. We are not saying that our own land is not good - it is definitely good, but we are talking about cost-wise. So far we have only been to the southern side of thailand and to get halal food is no problems at all since the majority population on the southern thailand are muslims. To know more, please refer to my website gallery under my trip - for some insights on how to go to Krabi.

KL - Bukit Kayu Hitam - 4-5hrs Journey
Bukit Kayu Hitam - Hatyai - 45mins-1hrs Journey
Hat Yai - Krabi - 3hrs journey

More info
You may enter either from Bukit Kayu Hitam, Wang Kelian or Padang Besar. To us, we prefer BKH as it is much easier to get the necessary entry documentations done here (embarkation cards as well as vehicle insurance) as there are many shops offering such services. The charges for the vehicle insurance is around RM16 for minimum 9 days.

You may change money to Thai Baht here too - the rate so far is pretty good. The documentation that you have to bring with you are of course your passports and the car registration card - if you do not have the original, you may bring a copy and get it endorsed at any police station. If the owner of the car is not joining the trip, an authorisation letter from the owner authorising you to drive the car would be required.

When reaching Thailand immigration area, please park your car at the designated parking area adjacent to the immigration complex. bring along all the documentation and walk up to the immigration counter. if it is peak season, there will be separate counters for bus passengers and car passengers.

The owner or driver of the car will then need to go the customs counter on the next lane to register and they will issue a importation/exportation form for you to sign and keep a copy. this form would need be signed and return upon exiting thailand later. don't forget to do this as you will be compounded should you leave thailand without returning this form.

After settling the customs side, back to the immigration counter. remember to put RM1 inside each passport before giving it to the immigration officers. this is a normal practice here - upon entry as well as exit. should you forget, they will ask you for it anyways, but better do it before being asked.

When all is complete, you may then drive your car through the customs lane for the customs officer to sight and give you an OK sign to enter Thailand.. then you're off to go anywhere within Thailand.

Want to buy parts just go to Hat Yai Chevrolet SC.
