The bus is the only public transport available on the island. Phuket Town is the main landmark, I enter the island. Connections are also guaranteed with Patong, where there are numerous resorts on the island.
Tickets can be purchased directly on board the vehicle. The price is around €3.50 per trip.

Alternatively, you can use your hotel shuttle (provided your property provides it). In this case it will be enough to obtain the right information at the time of booking.


On the island it should be noted that there are official taxis and private taxis. From the airport and the island, our advice is to ALWAYS prefer official taxis; they are the cheapest and almost always have a working taximeter on display. With private taxis, however, it is always advisable to check in advance the rate applied.


The best solution, not only to move but also to better enjoy the island; moving in total freedom. You can rent your car directly at the airport, returning it on the day of departure. The price, on average, is around €30 per day, with excellent discounts for weekly rates.
It will be necessary to provide a credit card (not prepaid), and a national driving license; always opt for comprehensive insurance that covers all damages.
