comment How can I determine if I need an International Driving Permit?
the CAA seems rather focused on Florida and Georgia, as place Canadians drive to I expect, rather than places Canadians might drive in.

comment At *some* border crossings, why do bus passengers have to get off, but not those in cars?
I have to reject your premise. I've crossed the border on a bus without having to leave the bus and I know people are routinely asked to leave their cars at border too, though not all are.

comment Are there any free english education in Canada for foreigners?
But is improving your skills the reason for the trip, or just something you want to take advantage during a vacation? And how long is the trip?

comment Strange qualification criteria for a Thai resort
This smells like timeshare rules to me. They don't want any "I would have to confirm with my spouse" excuses not to buy, and they don't want your friends with you giving moral support not to buy. You must bring whatever spouse you have, and nobody else, and you must have plenty of money. Whatever you think you're going to save on the hotel, run away. You might well find yourself buying a timeshare - these people are good. Everyone who goes there does so with their guard up, and yet enough get sold to keep the sellers in business.

comment Are there any free english education in Canada for foreigners?
why do you want to learn English while you're in Canada? Are you just visiting as a tourist for a few weeks and want to pick up some language skills, or is this the point of the trip? I get the feeling some of those schools charge those fees because they are used as a reason for visiting by people who want to meet Canadians and lay the groundwork for returning later as an immigrant. If you only want the language teaching part of the deal, you can get it for a lot less.
