Over the past few years Koh Samui’s roads have vastly improved with most being concrete or tarmac. That being said there are still a few that go towards the center of the island or up maintains that are dirt. We recommend being cautious when following roads away from the main ring road and not to follow any off-road trails as they can become narrow and steep and there is the risk of your rental car getting stuck.
Please read our guide that contains some excellent tips and more information about driving in Koh Samui.
Gasoline: There are several gasoline stations on the main ring road around the island. Typically PTT stations (blue color) are the cheapest. When you enter a gasoline station, make sure you go to the pump that has the right gasoline for your car. Release the gasoline cap on your car, tell the pump attendant how much gasoline in Baht you would like and they will fill up your car for you, take your money and return with your change. Receipts are only issued if requested.
Warning: the level at which drivers obey the rules of the road varies in Thailand. Please be aware of vehicles: speeding, coasting at a very slow speed, turning without indicating or suddenly breaking.
Warning: the roads around Koh Samui are notoriously dangerous. Please allow plenty of breaking distance when wet, dry (sand) and between other vehicles.
Beware of motorbikes either side of your car before turning. They are small, fast and often difficult to see until it is too late.
