Driving in Phaic Tan is not really recommended, due to the poor state of rural roads. Trips into remote village areas will almost definitely require a 4WD, preferably armour-plated, and a police escort.
Even roads within Phaic Tan’s larger towns are badly damaged from years of war and general neglect, prompting the Government to recently set up a scheme in which locals were paid a small cash reward to fill in pot holes. The scheme had to be quickly abandoned when it was discovered these same enterprising locals were sneaking out at night and deliberately creating new pot holes.
The road rules in Phaic Tan are quite straight-forward. Cars and motorbikes drive on the left, buses and trucks drive at their own discretion – at specific times of the day footpaths may be used as a transit lane. Remember to always sound your horn before overtaking, turning, pulling out, pulling in, changing lanes or stopping. It’s also obligatory to sound your horn before sounding your horn and stiff fines apply to those who fail to do so.
