The pair were on their way over Patong Hill to the west coast about 7.30pm last night when the rider, a British man, wrongly took a right hand turn at the Caltex intersection.
Heading towards Loch Palm instead of Patong, the rider quickly realised his mistake and attempted to make a u-turn.
However the motorcycle accelerated and the couple crashed into the open doorway of a house.
The woman complained of a sore head and the rider, who was wearing a helmet, suffered grazes.
Both were admitted to Vachira Phuket Hospital in Phuket City. It's not clear what experience the rider had had with motorcycles.
expensive motorcycle hire compensation for damage to house for the bike hospital bills ouch! if took travel insurance the fine print would be heavily studied for the first time.
