Why rent a car in Thailand?
Thailand is a great place to rent a car in. From impressive Bangkok to extensive beaches, jungle tours, and Buddhist temples, getting your own ride is the best way to explore its fascinating diversity.
Top ways to enter Thailand
- Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport: Bangkok’s main airport is among the 20 busiest in the world. The word “suvarnabhumi” means Land of Gold in Sanskrit.
- Phuket International Airport: Located in the country’s south, Phuket Airport serves flights to and from many destinations in both Asia and Europe.
- Bangkok Don Mueang Airport: Bangkok’s second airport is served by more than 10 different airlines.
Top cities and places to visit
- Bangkok: Thailand’s exciting capital city is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Asia, but still retains its unique character.
- Phuket: Perhaps the most famous Thailand’s beach destination.
- The rest of the South: Even beyond Phuket there’s plenty of excitement in Thailand’s south, be it in other tourist destinations like Krabi and Pattaya or in the jungle tours.
- Chiang Mai: The main city of Thailand’s north is a religious center and a beautiful, serene place.
- Isaan: Undiscovered by most travelers, this northeast region is full of ancient sites, hospitable locals, and interesting influences from its next door neighbors, Cambodia and Laos.

- Bangkok - Udon Thani (570 km / 354 mi) The city of Udon Thani, reached in about eight hours by car from Bangkok, has many historic and natural landmarks, and is just a short ride away from neighboring Laos and its capital, Vientiane.
