30 images from the Bangkok International Motor Show

How does this show compare with our very own?
May 3, 2012

In late March, we sent associate editor Paulo Subido and associate art director Raynand Olarte to the 33rd Bangkok International Motor Show, now one of the biggest automotive events in all of Asia. Basically, we wanted to see for ourselves just how far ahead Thailand's premier car show is compared to ours (which, depending on whom you ask, is either the annual Manila International Auto Show or the biennial Philippine International Motor Show). We wanted to see how our venue, cars, aftermarket products and even booth models stacked up against their Thai counterparts.

The following 30 photos were snapped by Raynand. It's a mix of the motor show's cars, facility and people. Browse through them and see if our country's biggest car shows measure up favorably well.
