Thailand has the second most deadly roads in the world. The dangers of driving in Thailand cannot be overstated. Factor in Westerners without a motorcycle license assuming they can ride properly, cheap buckets of strong booze, and the false-assumption of an "anything goes" type society means that many young travellers never make it home. Especially on the islands, you will encounter very poorly maintained roads, with horrendous potholes, and steep drops if you veer off the road. And drink (or drug) driving, although illegal, are very common indeed, and does not have the social stigma associated with drink-driving in the west.
Yes. renting yourself a motorcycle can save you quite a lot on taxis and give you freedom to explore, ''but only drive if you are confident and competent in your motorcycle riding skill''.
