Car & Motorcycle

You can rent motorcycles all over the island for 200B to 250B per day; it's cheaper if you book for several days. Always wear a helmet – it’s the law on Ko Pha-Ngan, and local policemen are starting to enforce it. But whatever the law, without a helmet, if you come off even at quite a low speed and hit your head, you can sustain serious injuries. Check that the motorcycle has enough space in the under-seat compartment to store your helmet. If you plan on riding over dirt tracks it is imperative that you rent a bike comparable to a Honda MTX125 – gearless scooters cannot make the journey. Avoid driving on the roads during any Full Moon.
