Transport

Getting to and from Phuket

  • By air

Getting to Phuket by air couldn't be easier. Phuket is served by an international airport with a number of scheduled and charter flights from Europe and around Asia.

However, the majority of visitors still fly to Bangkok first, where there are over a dozen domestic flights to Phuket daily. With the growth in budget airlines such as Nok Air, Air Asia, Bangkok Airways and Orient Thai (One2Go), ticket prices are now very low. There is also the national carrier Thai Airways, which is slightly more expensive but offers a higher level of service.

Flights from Bangkok take about 1 hour and 20 minutes. Book your tickets early, especially during the high season from November to April.

Phuket International Airport is situated at the northern end of the island about 45 mins drive from Phuket City. Tel: +66 (0)76-327-230 (information counter is extension 1111 or 1122).

  • By car

Phuket is about 867km (539 miles) from Bangkok, with a travelling time of approximately 10 hours. There are many car rental companies in Bangkok, both international firms such as Avis and Budget, as well as local companies.

Driving in Thailand is quite pleasant outside of town and cities. Motorways are in good condition and mostly well sign-posted in Thai and English. Driving standards are poor but better than many other developing nations.

Take Highway 4 from Bangkok, passing through Nakhorn Pathom, Ratchaburi, Phetchaburi, Prachuapkhirikan, Chumphon, Ranong and Phang Nga. The highway between Ranong and Phang Nga is quite scenic with forest-covered mountains on one side and the Andaman sea on the other

Getting around Phuket

  • Getting to or from the airport : There are air-con van services between Phuket airport and Patong, Phuket Town, and most other locations on the Island. There are also taxis available, ensure you agree a price before you start your journey.
  • Public transport : Songthaeos (tuk tuk's) ply around the island during daytime for 50 - 100 baht per person depending on the distance.
  • Car & Motorcycle : You can rent motorcycles and jeeps from rental shops all round the island. Ensure you check they are insured and that you hire and use a helmet.
