Typical Thai Bus! No.... really! - Sleeping compartment

Occupant of air conditioned sleeping compartment shares space with some serious amplification equipment and 2 million km of wires, necessary to ensure that no passenger can escape the ear-splitting sound output.

Typical Thai Bus! No.... really!

Thai Bus

This bus is outrageous, and the first time you see one like it blasting past you on a busy Thai highway you might be forgiven for thinking that someone had slipped something into one of your drink. But soon you will realize that it is necessary if you own a bus in Thailand to make it look at least as crazy as this.

If you haven't seen one of these buses before this article and attached photos should give you some idea.

Small Navara

Siam Nissan Automobile believe that 2007 will be their year! According to reports, Nissan are projecting sales in Thailand to increase by anything between 42% (Bangkok Post) and 80% (ANTARA News, Japan) this year.

Nissan are banking on a healthy sales boost to result from the launch of the all new Frontier Navara pickup truck which, according to the Nissan website, will be released in 5 days.

Given that the Navara will be the biggest and most powerful truck on the Thai market, it would seem reasonable for Nissan to expect big things.

Nice to know that a car costing THB 1.2 million has rear suspension and a transmission system.

In my opinion Nissan Thailand have one of the best websites of any of the auto makers. It's clearly laid out, has a very comprehensive English version, and you have access to all the specifications that tend to be missing from other sites.

But on the specification listing for the Nissan Teana, it would appear that a few details have been lost in translation.

This is the life most Navaras can expect to enjoy in Thailand, although they will be loaded much higher, often beyond the load limits.

Nissan's Navara made a underwhelming appearance at the Thailand International Motor Expo, but when it hits the showrooms early next year, the impact it makes on the segment should be anything but.

Now if you don't live in America, Australia or indeed Thailand, you are probably thinking "but it's just a truck, what's all the excitement about a pickup truck?"

It's no secret that pickup trucks are by far the most popular choice of 4 wheeled transport in Thailand. I'd love to be able to dismiss the truck as a crazy choice for anyone except farmers, but the reasons for owning a pickup in Thailand are more compelling than you might realize. But that's a whole other topic.

If you buy a car at the show you stand a chance of winning this Nissan Tiida. I had a good look at one at the show, and I was pretty impressed.

Not the best looking car ever, but practical and good value for money.
