Was quite easy, went to the Tessabaan Cha Am with yellow book and passport and 45 minutes later and minus 100 bahts got my "bat bprachaachon" "บัตรประชาชน"
Et voilà !!

Let's hear some instances where people who have it have actually used it? Is it just something to have in case of emergency (like a derringer :shock: ) or is it actually useful? I've a yellow book for years but I haven't gone to get the ID card yet. Pete :cheers:

I've used it for checking into most hotels without a passport.

The thing that gets my BP to the explosion point is the disconnect between Immigration and the local government. Why in the :cuss: :banghead: :guns: hell should a returning non-immigrant with a valid Yellow Book have to run at speed within 24 hours to the local immigration office to do the damn 24 hour "arrival at address" report. I've asked the question of immigration, I've always gotten blank stares and no answers. Bureaucracy with no direction, and going in no direction. :shock: Pete :cheers:

Sorry. Not a "bat bprachachon" "บัตรประชาชน". In fact it's says so on the back. Anyway, I hope you find it useful. Cheers.

Instances I've used my ID Card:

- Internal Flights
- Pattaya Ferry
- Checking into Hotels
- Thai entry price to National Parks
- Hospital (checking in process)
- Posting letters/parcels
- I'm sure there are other uses - just can't think of them at the moment.

On the other hand, the only use for my Yellow Book has been to obtain my ID card.

^ I would think their acceptance is interchangeable. If you go to the trouble to lug around the book I imagine you would get the same benefits. However, an official card with photo is something dear to the Thai heart and indeed it may open more doors than the book itself that it's based upon. :? I'm not trying to poo poo the card as I really have meant to get one over the past year but slipped the mind and not urgent. It's always good to have a handy thing in the wallet to pull out if at times some extra ummmffff is needed. :D Pete :cheers:
