:: Thai Roads

The land transport system of Thailand includes 79,180 km of highways providing efficient passage to all regions of Thailand.

The government also realised the necessity to enhance the inter-city transport infrastructure creating links between Bangkok and other major cities in each region of Thailand. At present, 225km of the inter-city motorways are already in used. On completion of the construction, the inter-city motorway is expected to stretch 4,150 km long. Undoubtedly, it will be an important access to all major transport systems which are vital for economic development of the country.

 

It can be said that Thailand has a good network of well maintained roads and highways between all main centres. Most of the north-south route is dual carriage way. Road signage follows international convention and is in both Thai and English. Night driving is not recommended on the open road due to heavy truck traffic, which tends to have a poor respect for cars. Motor bikes can on occasion be a hazard, particularly as they are often ridden into oncoming traffic. Driving on the more major routes outside Bangkok and around resort areas is both a safe and an enjoyable experience. A self drive holiday offers the opportunity to experience wonderful Thai culture and the opportunity for travellers to stop as long as they like at the many points of interest in the Kingdom.

Bangkok has a poor reputation for traffic conditions and this is justified except on the expressways. The city is very overcrowded with traffic and this makes driving difficult for drivers unfamiliar with the city. Whilst Thai drivers are exceedingly courteous and considerate to other road users (horns are used very rarely), traffic directions, and entry and exit locations often change during the day. These changes are seldom advised by signs, and none are in English, hence unfamiliar drivers can end up a considerable distance from their desired location due to enforced traffic flows. An increasingly extensive network of expressways within Bangkok now makes entry and exit of the city a simple task. Accordingly, one way rentals from or to Bangkok International Airport is not a difficult undertaking.
