There is 52,000 km of national and provincial roads, all major roads are paved. Thailand uses the left-hand system. Road signage’s usually are in Thai and English. The maximum speed limit in urban places is 60km/h (35mp/h) and varies between 100-120 km/h (60-72 mp/h) on highways and country roads. There are a four-nation ring road through Thailand, Laos, China and Myanmar.

On the Thai-Malaysian border, the most important road crossings are: Yala, Songkhla and Narathiwat. Between Thailand and Myanmar, there are numerous border crossings open for short trips in the surrounding area. Aranyaprathet is a legal border crossing between Cambodia and Thailand, the border is open from 8.00 am to 6.00 pm daily. The Thai-Lao Friendship Bridge across the Mekong River near Nong Khai, is the link between Thailand and Laos.

A self-drive holiday gives the opportunity for tourists to stop as long as they like and experience the amazing Thai culture. Driving on the most of the major routes outside Bangkok and around areas is an pleasant experience.

Most cars in the country use lead-free petrol, while vans use diesel. Fuel stations are abundant and most of the bigger ones accept international credit cards, in remote locations cash will be required.

Driving at night on the open road is not suggested due to heavy traffic. Motor bikes can also be a risk. Drunk-driving laws apply.
