Visitors to Thailand and Phuket for the first time may be concerned about the safety of driving on Thai roads.
Well an important factor to consider is, what side of the road do they drive on? It is the left side, the same as in the UK, Australia and India. For a useful map on what countries drive on the left hand side visit the Tipoa Car Hire Blog

and Petrol Stations,
The biggest adjustment you have to make when driving in Thailand, is the large amount of motorcycles. Motorcycles tend to drive in opposite directions to what they should on the wrong side of the road, and carry up to 4 persons. There are very few pedestrians.
But the main roads are good and in fact flow quite well most of the time.
BEWARE there are very few 24 hour petrol stations in Phuket . Don't get caught out, petrol stations tend to close at around 20:00 hrs. There is a 24 hour petrol station close to the airport, on the main road Thep Krassattri [ National Highway No. 402 ] เทพกระษัตรี อ.ถลาง จ.ภูเก็ต ไทย to Phuket Town and the South of the Island.
