Many tourists visiting Phuket stay at one of the main west coast resorts like Patong Beach, but being such a large island, it has a lot more going for it than just beaches and nightlife. Hiring a car to explore Phuket can be a rewarding experience.

For intrepid travellers, car hire opens up a range of possibilities that are much less accessible to tourists without wheels – but be warned, like in most of Asia, traffic conditions can be a mite challenging. Thai traffic drives on the left… most of the time. It’s not as terrifying as India, but you need to keep your wits about you.

With car hire, you can also cross the bridge at the northern end of the island to explore the Thai mainland, including the nearby James Bond Island and Koh Panyee, two famous areas in Phang Nga Bay.
