121CarHire.com compares the prices of well-known car hire companies in Thailand, including the following location: Korat Airport
Korat, also known as Nakhon Ratchasima, is one of the major cities of northeast Thailand. It has a small regional airport that usually operates domestic flights to Bangkok on Happy Air or Thai Regional Airlines. The schedule changes often, however. When flights are running there is car hire in Korat Airport from two global rental companies.
There are essentially no facilities in the airport at Korat since so little air traffic travels through the terminal. Passengers can expect to find a snack bar and a gift shop with reading materials, as well as ATMs and car hire in Korat Airport just next to the baggage claim. Parking is available on site for drivers.
There isn't a great deal to see in Korat itself, but a great day drive can be done to Khao Yai National Park, a UNESCO site. The roads around Korat are in fine condition and have plenty of English signage to help with navigation. Thai traffic can be a bit erratic at times, but it isn't dangerous. To ensure getting the lowest rental prices, compare car hire deals on the internet before arrival in Korat.
As in most Thai cities, if visitors want to get out and explore the surrounding countryside they need their own transportation. A fantastic dose of Thai nature is nearby at Khao Yai National Park. Much of it is drive-through for easy sightseeing. Ancient ruins from the Khmer culture can be seen at the ruin of Phimai, while interesting Issan towns like Surin are fairly close by.
There are three seasons in Korat: hot, rainy and dry. It's never cool in this region of Thailand, though the period November through January offers some relief as the daytime highs drop to 29°C. March through June are particularly hot and dry, often reaching the upper 30s (°C). The seasonal rains begin in May, but most of it falls in August, September and October.
