Topic: Optician / Driving licence.

Lost my glasses! Any recommended optician in Krabi area?
Anybody got a Thai driving licence holding Tourist Visa and Int. driving licence? (One of the reason to get new glasses)!

Re: Optician / Driving licence.

SK Optik in Ao Nang or their Krabi Town branch, Sawang Optik on Soi 4 (?) Maharat Road. Most expats go to one of these. Good service - make sure you ask for Khun Billy, the owner, if he is there, they're much better than the national chains like Top Charoen etc. and won't rip you off.

Thai driving licence is available to non-immigrant visa holders only, as far as I am aware, though the Krabi Land Transport office is quite "flexible" generally, so may be worth giving it a shot.
