    Toyota Factory Tour

    I am interested in going on a Toyota Factory Tour in Bangkok next month, has anyone been on one or knows where the factory is ?


    I have emailed Toyota Thailand to book a tour, would be interesting IMO.


    Here are some details : Dates for tours : Monday / Wenseday / Friday
    Location: Banpho Plant
    Section Available for Tour: Assembly Shop and Biotope
    Morning Tour Time: 9.30 11.30 am.
    Afternoon Tour Time : 13.30 15.30 pm.
    Number of Visitors: 40-60 person/team

    Notes

    The company reserves the right to cancel factory tours at their own discretion due to internal factory activities.
    In the event that multiple parties reserve a tour on the same day, resulting in a scheduling conflict, the compny reserves the right to grant permission to educational organizations, followed by the first organization to make contact.
    Because there are many channels to book a factory tour, the company reserves the right to specify that a reservation is only valid once a written confirmation from Toyota has been sent to your organization.

    I think it is in Ayutthya, but maybe more than one.

    Rivo, If it's the one I think it is, it is about 1/2 way to Patts. I know there is a very big one that I have past several times and I'm sure it's in that region. I would guess about 3/4 to 1 hr drive from Nana, depending on time of day for traffic.

    When you have your booking, ask them the best way to get there, they may have a bus service pickup from Bkk especially if they run tours of 40-60 people.

    I know there are several... and both JC and NTM are correct of the location....

    Try go to the one at Ayuttaya and make it an overnight trip.... Ayuttaya is a place everyone should see at least once!

    if you go to see one stop by and say hello to Noy's sister, she is some sort of Supervisor there. I honestly did nto knwo you could do a tour of the Factory. I will add that to my list of things to do. I have been through Truck assembly lines, seeing a Toyota one would be very interesting to me. Look forward to the photos (if they would let you take any..)
