Tour de Thailand for Car Enthusiasts

We are looking at running a tour around March next year, 2025 in Bangkok, Thailand to check out some amazing car collections, private and public including a huge state of the art car museum that is opening Q4 of 2024.

Exact dates are yet to be confirmed, but I should know soon as I am trying to align the event with a popular car event in Thailand during our stay, we should have confirmed dates around September.

Once dates are confirmed, I will be putting together the full itinerary and will lock in the event, you will need to pay for your own flights, insurance, accommodation and meals, we will try stay at the same hotel as each other where I’ll lock in a discount, we will have a tour bus for the days we require it.

Rough timeline of events:

  • Friday – Fly to Bangkok, land during the day or evening
  • Saturday – Visit major car show, could be day or night (TBC)
  • Sunday – Visit Heng’s Garage (Famous private collection)
  • Monday – Tour to Pattaya: Storm Garage visit, then V8 Fastlane for lunch and explore their car collection + bonus workshop visit then to visit Coffee War
  • Tuesday – Tour to Pattaya: Nong Nooch Tropical Botanical Garden in Pattaya which has two major car collections to see, along with exploring the wonderful gardens, approx. $22 AUD per person on the Klook app for tickets
  • Wednesday – Jesada Technik Museum in Bangkok, this is a new massive museum just outside of Bangkok that is huge, opening July this year! has a massive collection of cars
  • Thursday – VIP Autosport Supercar Collection, then tour around some shopping complexes looking at other amazing cars on display then Srinagarindra Train Night Market which has an amazing collection of classic / muscle cars on display, antiques etc
  • Friday – Fly back home

For those who haven’t been to Thailand before:

For those who are new to Thailand and haven’t been before, it will be a fully guided tour and I will personally be assisting you through the journey to make everyone comfortable, e.g. getting from and to the airport, money exchange, and explaining everything you need to know about Thailand. Each day tour is optional however the van hire & driver cost will still be split between everyone.

Other Information / Costs:

  • Be sure you have a passport, and that it has 6 months remaining before expiry as a minimum.
  • I’m not making anything from this, however I will be filming the tour as we go around to make a documentary, but won’t be in your face with the camera if you don’t like it.
  • Plenty of stops for drinks and food will be made throughout the day trips.
  • Evenings you are free to do what you would like to do, although I’m happy for anyone to join me on my ventures to the shopping centres, night markets, great food places, etc which is what I do every evening. Get your walking shoes on though! it’s really enjoyable.
  • Cost budget is: $800-$1000 for return flights, approx. $130 for insurance, $400 for accommodation, approx. $100 for van cost per person, and approx. $500-$700 spending money… so approx. 2k all up for an individual.

Register your interest!

This will register your interest in the trip, but you don’t have to commit yet. Once the dates are confirmed, we will give you an opportunity to secure your spot for about $100.
