Bring an International driving licence – although most national ones are accepted by motorbike and car hire companies and anyone else who wants to hire you something, you may not be insured without an IDL! In Thailand they drive on the left - cars are right-hand-drive. However driving is really only for the experienced. Be especially careful on a motorbike - Samui has the highest accident rate in Thailand. If you are stopped by the police, it is advisable to have 200 baht handy as you may be required to pay an on the spot “fine”; it is inadvisable to get out your wallet and display a large amount of cash or the “fine” might increase.
