Renting motorbike to go around?

Hi again! Just wondering if is it worth renting a motorbike for a day? We are planning to spend 1 day to wander around maybe go to Krabi town from Ao Nang using a motorbike. What other places can we include in our plan if we will be using a motorbike? Do we need to have like a license or something to rent? Thanks again! :)

tells you all the legal stuff about hiring.

While its a nice idea, the accident rate in Thailand is appallingly high, and about 70% of all accidents involve motorcycles.

Getting on an airplane your accident rate its less than 0.0001 %. Riding a motorbike in Thailand, it will increase 10'000 times. On narow roads Westerners usually turn to the right in case of an opposite vehicle is approaching. It's deadly !

Hmmm...after reading the article and your feedbacks...we decided to scrap the idea of renting a bike! Good thing I asked first hahaha :) Thanks!
