    Hi Chris,

    Thanks for dropping by and sorry for the late reply.

    Yes, there is a huge outlet selling branded clothing along the Patong Beach Bypass, it open from 9am.

    I did not visit the place as shopping of branded clothing is not my priority.

    Depending on what you really like, just assume Phuket is just another island with a numbers of island hopping trip for snorkeling and diving.

    Nightlife is great at Bangla road, Patong beach where you can enjoy till 4am with out anybody trouble you.

    Hi, checked out few articles. You are really good driving to Thai, so wish to check with you, any update on the ‘entrance’ procedure from Malaysia to Thai by driving? Planning to drive from Ipoh to Hatyai, so whether good to drive our car in or leave at the duty free shop? Also the documents that required to drive in? Only car registeration card? Thank you

    Hi Carmen,

    Thanks for visiting my blog.

    I won’t claim I am good but I guess those who are good in it does not document it.

    The entrance procedure to Thailand is still the same as mentioned in the blog. You can check those trip journal.

    All you need is the car registration card, original if possible. Purchase the Thailand insurance at the border and submit it at the Thai custom to obtain the car entry permit.

    Self driving will be more enjoyable as you can further venture to Songklah or even Trang…

    Taking taxi is more relaxing as you do not need to worry about the route. However, GPS is cheap now, get one with Thailand map will help you a lot.

    Please do share with me your trip so that I can upload it and share with the rest.

    Hi, you need to bring along the car registration card ( preferable original ) for insurance purchase and border crossing.

    If you are not the car owner, then you need the authorization letter from the car owner.

    Please read the my blog journey or the FAQ section for more information.

    What I’m concern, is it the ride is safe. In terms on security and road condition. Easy to drive to destination???

    Hi Daniel,

    My friend Public Way just had a 2 weeks self drive holiday from JB to Phuket

    The road is equivalent to what we had in Malaysia and it is toll free.

    Please allow enough rest and try not to drive at night.
