I am considering another trip to Thailand, about 2-3 weeks, doing some training, but also hoping to see more of Thailand as my previous trips were primarily focused on training with the expectation of getting a fight there so not whole lot of time for exploring places beyond the top tourist attractions. That being said, I am wondering if anyone here has experience renting a car in Thailand and what is the driving experience like outside of the big cities, is it fairly easy to navigate (not sure how effective my Google maps app would be on rural roads, so perhaps I could get a GPS as back up), and are there any specific things that I need to be aware of/keep in mind when driving/renting a car in Thailand aside from the traffic driving on the opposite side than Canada, lol. What is the availability of gas stations like outside of big cities?

Oh man, I’ve never rented a car or a scooter to take myself around the [Chiang Mai or Bangkok] city because I would get so frustrated with how busy traffic gets. Also, the fact that they drive the opposite compared to Canada, I fear that I would cause an accident or get into one. But if you’re super patient and have confidence in your driving, go for it, take care!
