Bike registered in Finland. Freighted possibly from Kathmandu, Nepal, to Suvarnabhumi airport, some time in November or December. Before that the bike will have been taken into India and Nepal on the CDP, Carnet de Passages-customs document, but at the moment I dont even know, if Thailand require, or recommend, or accept the CDP to be used as import document? Or if some other temporary-import document will be used? Anyone have 1st-hand experience about the costs, and how things will work at the airport (much more efficient and quicker than they would at the harbour, or so they say!).. and if theres anything special to keep in mind when you want to import your own bike into Thailand? Any specific length of time that your allowed to have your bike in Thailand? Im planning to go on to Cambodia and Laos, too, so that shouldnt be a big obstacle. What a pity you cant ride thru Myanmar, or take a detour north thru China (well maybe you could, but my budget probably wouldnt allow!) so at the moment this seems to be the way to go. They should change the government in both countries, starting with Myanmar, to make them accessible for bikers  !! BTW, there is no ferry from India (Chennai or Kolkata?) to Malaysia, is that right? I hear there used to be one years ago, but not after it caught fire and sank. I still feel like checking out, if theres a ferry from India to the Andaman&Nicobar islands (could be), and another to somewhere in Thailand or Malaysia (maybe not).
