Car hire in Asia can be a fantastic idea, especially if you're keen to explore at your own pace. The continent is so diverse and vast that having your own set of wheels can be a massive bonus. For instance, hiring a car lets you venture off the beaten path in places like the scenic coastal roads of Vietnam's Ha Long Bay or the historic Silk Road in China, which aren't always easily accessible by public transport. Moreover, it frees you from the constraints of timetables, allowing for spontaneous detours to lesser-known spots, maybe a secluded beach in Thailand or a picturesque village in Japan.
In bustling cities like Bangkok or Mumbai, the traffic can be a tad chaotic, with a fascinating blend of tuk-tuks, bikes and cars jostling for space. Conversely, Japan offers a calm and orderly driving environment with well-signposted roads. Note, in countries like Indonesia and Thailand, you'll be driving on the left-hand side, quite a change if you're from a right-hand drive country. Be ready to encounter toll roads, especially in China and Japan. The road quality can vary immensely, from sleek highways in Malaysia to more rugged paths in rural Vietnam.
In Asia, the minimum age to hire a car usually hovers around 21 to 23 years, though it can vary slightly between countries. For instance, in Japan, you've got to be at least 18, while in South Korea, the bar is set at 21. Keep in mind, if you're under 25, some places might slap on a young driver surcharge. When it comes to licence requirements, most countries accept an International Driving Permit alongside your national driving licence, making the process fairly straightforward. It's always a good idea to check the specific requirements for each country, to ensure a smooth ride.
