I been driving solo with family to Hua Hin, so not an big issue as the road condition is good. Diesel is not a problem at all but prepare to pay more.

19-25 Dec is super peak season, make sure you have pre-book your accommodation since you are travel with family.

You may refer to for my trip to Hua Hin. May be you can share with your wife and kids if they are convinced.

I m planning to drive with my family to Thailand, solo. How safe is it .
I hv driven before to songkhla n Hatyai few times but this time around planning to go to either hua hin or ko samui.
My wife and teenagers kids are not buying the idea. Planning to go from 19 – 25 Dec. What will be the perfect itinerary for this trips and is diesel available easily. Wat should be my planning at this stage.

I also forgot to write down the GPS coordinate coz I’m driver for the whole journey.
Let me share my favourite hatyai webguide with GPS coordinate:-

I miss the BigC supermarket and Tesco Lotus cause everytime my cars’ boot will fullload once return to Malaysia. Three times I passed green lane without any major checked by UPU officals.Best time coming back Malaysia is around 7 pm ++ cause near prayer time where the imigresen & UPU officals going to change shift.

if anyone, drop Koh Samui do update me coz I am planning to Koh Samui ( 3 nites) , Songkhla ( 1 nite) & Hatyai (1 nite) somewhere in June 2013.

Thanks for your comment.

I am trying my best to provide as much as information possible.

But since this is just a leisure travel, I tend to forget about recording the GPS coordinate.

I will appreciate everyone can provide me with some interesting POI so that I can compile it in a dedicated section.

You may email me to

I arrived at Aonang, Krabi this afternoon. I am staying at the Aonang Naga Pura Resort & Spa. Got a special deal from MBF Cards. Only pay RM599.00 for 4 days 3 nights package. The room is so spacious that I can put my whole family in. I make a mistake today on the way to Krabi. Instead of turning left to Trang from Phatthalung just as you mention in your trip I went straight on the highway because my GPS says so. I think that way is longer. Anyway, I am not going to make that mistake again on my way back to Hatyai. I am going through Trang and have look and eat at that restaurant on the hilltop “Khao Pubpa”.

That is a good idea instead of pushing yourself too hard.

Please allow more time at the emerald pool as I did not get to explore much in my last visit due to limited time.

Krabi is quite a distance away from Bangkok and people there rely on tourist to earn a living, I guess it will be ok, not to worry too much as you have your own transport and you can leave any time you want …

Enjoy your trip and please drop me a message if you are coming to KL so that we can have a drink and share some experience.
