If you wish to travel around Asia, car rental is the way to go. As we all know, Asia is a rather large area, and the public transportation system often doesn’t exist at all.
But is it at all possible to rent a car in Asia? Of course it is! Most of the car rental companies are often located around the bigger cities, airports and similar.
One thing to keep in mind about Asia is that it’s very different from area to area. In some place they’ve got great road, while in other places they often haven’t got any roads at all.
In some areas there are hardly any laws, and you can basically drive without a driver’s license, while in other areas you need to go through the university to be allowed to drive.
Therefore it is very important to investigate the area you want to visit, before making any decisions about transportation. Very likely it will be the best option to rent a car, but sometimes it implies serious complications.
In any case, there’s one thing you just can’t do without: a GPS. Whether you find your self in a city or the countryside, it is very easy to get lost and it can be very hard to find any help, unless you speak the language. Funny, ha?
All this taken into account, car rental still remains the best option, unless you want to walk around. As you would have expected, it is often very cheap to rent a car. Still, keep your eyes wide open. It can also be confusing, as price does not always equal quality.
In any case, as long as you do your homework, Asia is certainly a place worth visiting, be it by car or other means of transportation. The variety of experiences are surpassed by few, or maybe any other areas in the world.
