OUR LITTLE TREASURES:
Southeast Asia's License Plates





Have you ever wondered how our neighboring villages'
license plates look like?


Here they are.








From top to bottom: Myanmar, Laos, Singapore, Philippines, Vietnam,
Malaysia, Thailand, East Timor, Brunei, Cambodia and Indonesia.

I wanted to know the first ever license plates issued in each "villages" (country) so I sent emails to all National Transportation Offices (except East Timor) and up to now, no reply from them yet. Seems they don't know it too. Well, I can't wait for their replies so I'm posting this already

Have you heard that Malaysia is planning to put a chip on their plates (or cars) to track down carnappers. That's cool!

Another interesting post! I like! :)

By the way, Singapore is also looking at implementing personalised car plates just like Australia.

Good luck :)

I don't think that Phil. plate is the recent one. Our plates today have the picture of Phil. icons. So dirty too that's why we should use a plate cover also a light... ah -
