The motorway system is somewhat limited but paved however be advised that many roads are made of gravel and you will need to take extra caution while travelling on them – especially during winter. If you decide to do a self drive tour of say the Golden Triangle check the weather and road conditions before your set out.
As driving is a more rugged experience SUV's, 4x4's are popular, and you will find almost all rented cars come with spiked tyres (listen to the funny rattly sound from them when you are on a clear paved road.
