The 33rd Bangkok International Motor Show (Virtual Tour)
SAWASDEE KA! The 33rd Bangkok International Motor Show, it all starts here.
Today is the first day of the 33rd Bangkok International Motor Show. We understand that there are many people could not make it especially those who are staying thousand miles away from Bangkok. We flew in today and spent one whole day at the Motor Show. Here is a little thing we created for all our readers from around the world, the Virtual Tour of The 33rd Bangkok International Motor Show.
It took us two hours and five minutes to reach Suvarnabhumi airport. Thanks to our lovely friend in Bangkok, Jaidee Kanyala, who picked us up at the airport and straight to the Impact Challenger Hall, Muang Thong Thani. The distance is about 50km (31miles) from the airport to the Motor Show but it took us two hours to reach there due to the crazy traffic jam in Bangkok. Indeed, we were forced to have our lunch in Jaidee’s car. According to Jaidee, for those who do not drive to the Motor Show, he or she can pick up a taxi/cab from the airport. It will cost around 400-500baht (US$12-$16). The ticket to enter the Motor Show is 100baht (approximately US$3) per person. It is free if you are wearing any Thai school uniforms.
This year, there are many new vehicles are being displayed at the Motor Show including Chevrolet Trailblazer, Mitsubishi Mirage, Mercedes-Benz Concept A-Class, Toyota NS4, Mazda Minagi, Nissan Townpod, Toyota FT-EV III, Ford Territory, and a few more to name here. The Chevrolet Trailblazer and Mitsubishi Mirage were launched two weeks prior to the show to gain more attention from the market before the Motor Show starts.
Large number of eco-cars, hybrid cars, and diesel-powered cars are available at the events. Plenty of potential buyers aim for these cars due to the rising cost of petrol inThailand. Consumers who buy eco-cars are also able to enjoy a lower excise duty as part of Thai government’s effort to protect the environment.
Start the virtual tour by clicking the brand/exhibitors (hyperlink below the image) that you wish to go “into” the booth and see their displayed vehicles. Note that we only include car exhibitors in this virtual tour. Accessories, motorcycles, and other non-car related are currently not available.
