Hey, I'm not new, but I haven't posted in a long time (haven't gone anywhere since my last trip in August 2004). Anyways, I'm going for a week long trip to thailand on the fly. I'm going with my flatmate and we're each just taking a small backpack, essential toiletries (basically toothbrush, toothpaste, toilet paper, and soap) 1 change of clothes, sleepsack, bikini, and ipod. (we plan on buying changes of clothes there because it's cheap).
Ok, so we've never been to Thailand before. So my big question is: We're going on the fly, so we're not booking anything in advance, but wanted to know if it's easy to rent motorcycles or cars without an international driver's license and how much it would be for a day. We plan on riding or driving down along the coast if possible. I know it was cheap and easy in Vietnam, and they didn't require proof of anything, even though I was told that you needed a license, most of the native there didn't even have one.
