Off we go! Eventhough we had been to our Phuket timeshare apartment a couple of times, we had never ridden on a scooter, cycled, nor driven ourselves. Always getting on locally organized tours. Lazing by the beach or pool. Well it’s time to change the playbook.
While it is true we cannot drive our own boat (who knows?), for our week plus stay this year we will be renting a car for 4½ days to swing through the resort island independently. It costs approximately 1,300 baht/day to rent a Toyota Vios for this intended road trip. Let you know how this works out later in the week, provided free wifi is available and working well LOL.
Remember we said we were intent on downloading Google drive maps onto our phones in this post? This is an example of a plan for a day’s drive round some of the main sights of Phuket :
Can’t wait to get started on the road!
