2018 Drive from Singapore to Thailand

If you are a fan of road trips, do join us at our ROAD TRIPS IN ASIA Facebook Group . We would love to connect with you and to share more about our common love for driving!


This is our 4th epic road trip from Singapore to Thailand. The past three years, the destination was Phuket. This year, we set our sights further north, to Bangkok and ultimately Rayong province to visit some of my friends there.

Although this is our 4th trip, uncertainties still abound. Things have changed: We hear that the Sadao immigration construction work has been completed and is now a drive through experience. If you are planning to drive your own vehicle into Thailand via Sadao, it is important you read about the new procedure HERE.

We wonder how it would be like to drive north of Phuket, and how difficult it will be to navigate Bangkok’s famous traffic jams.

This is the route we will be taking for this trip:

Singapore – Kuala Lumpur – Taiping – Hatyai – Chumphon – Bangkok – Rayong – Hua Hin – Phuket – Jitra – Taiping – Putrajaya – Singapore
