How to travel around Phuket City

Public transport in Phuket is not very organised or convenient. However, most resort hotels offer shuttle bus services into Phuket Town and Jeeps and motorbikes can be hired from several local shops in Phuket and at the main beaches.

Taxis

Metered taxis are relatively cheap and hassle-free but mostly available only at the airport. Fares are set at 50 THB for the first 2 kilometres and 7 THB per additional kilometre. However, most taxis seen on the island and in busy tourist areas are unlicensed and you must agree on the fare beforehand while stating your destination. Motorbike taxis are available everywhere on the island and fares usually start around 50 THB, but your total fare will depend on the distance and your bargaining skills. You can recognise the official drivers by their red or green vests with a white number on the back.

Tuk Tuks

Tuk Tuks are red mini-vans seen all over Phuket and they are good for shorter travel of up to 30 minutes. Just like the taxis, you have to agree on a price beforehand while stating your destination.

Buses

The blue open-air buses called Song-thaews operate between Phuket Town and the beaches from 7 am to 6 pm at a frequency of approximately 30 minutes, and fares start at 15 THB. Since there are no designated bus stops, you will need to flag down the bus in the middle of the street. The air-conditioned “micro” buses mainly service the Phuket Town area and have a fixed fare of 10 THB.

Boats and Ferries

Boats can be hired to go to near-by islands and fishing sites from various points such as the Makham Pier, Chalong Bay and Rawai Beach. Prices range from 1,000 THB – 3,000 THB for the longtail boats and 8,000 THB – 25,000 THB for the speedboats. You can also opt for the ferries which can be booked through a tour agent and includes transfers to and from the pier.

Tips and tricks for visiting Phuket

Shopping

While shopping in Phuket, be sure to haggle for a reasonable price and remember that though the shops claim to sell high quality goods, many turn out to be of inferior quality.

Organised tours and excursions

Compare the prices and reviews of tour groups and agencies before signing up with any one of them. Several companies charge a significant amount but lack quality customer service and tend to cut corners on meals and drinks.

Beach safety

Tides on Phuket beaches can sometimes come in quite suddenly, hence, do not ignore the red flag signs when they are put up on the beaches. Some beaches have been invaded by dangerous jelly fish, hence, be careful while choosing which beaches to visit.
