You can be lying on a beach one day, hiking in the mountains the next and visiting an elephant sanctuary the day after. The variety is what makes so many people come back for more and by renting a car to get around in Thailand you'll be making the most of your time in the country. Many nations boast of unforgettable experiences, but Thailand is brimming full of them. Everyone from film stars to fun-seekers has sought their very own experience here.
Thailand car hire allows you the flexibility of choosing a place to stay. Several places provide its visitors with countless options and generally speaking, excellent standards of facilities and service. You'll enjoy yourself, whether you're after some pampering at a spa resort, a swing or two at the many golfing hotels or some entertainment to match the heady nightlife of Bangkok. For those who like a restful break, scores of huts and hotels are hidden among the palms on quieter beaches like Ko Tao Island.
Thai weather is fairly reliable, although from March to May, temperatures can be scorching and best avoided. Generally, November to February is preferable, when you can also witness unique events like the Surin Elephant Roundup or The River of Kings Festival in Bangkok.
