It has all the right ingredients surrounded by clear blue water, its palm fringed beaches are of soft, clean sand, it has a vibrant nightlife and you can enjoy the most wide-ranging cuisine – you name it, you can eat it in Phuket. For several years Phuket has topped the polls as a holiday paradise, and in the most recent survey, readers of a top travel magazine voted for it ahead of Bali and Cebu. Add all this to the most welcoming people in the world, and you can see why travellers love it.

Right now we have no departures. That may be because we do not have any direct flight to your destination right now. Continue to the timetable to find suggestions for the best travel route.

Excursion to Phi Phi Island

This is one of the best excursions from Phuket and it takes a whole day. Leaving in the morning, the excursion includes a visit to island caves, a glass bottomed boat/submarine trip, and snorkelling off the island. Some time on Phi Phi Island, where some organizers go to Maya - a location for the film “The Beach.” See website for more details and other boat trips.

Phang-nga and Khai Nai Islands

Take the speedboat to Phang-nga and Khai Nai islands. Discover the flora and fauna at Panak Island, and the amazing limestone mountains at Hong Island. This trip also offers you a visit to Tapu Island (James Bond Island), Talu Cave, the fishing village called Ban Tak Dad and the landscape of mangrove forests.

Phuket International Airport

Phuket International Airport is situated north of the island, so apart from the luxury hotels around this area, it’s likely you will need to get to the mid-island resorts of Patong, Karon and Kata. By taxi the trip to Surin will take about 30 minutes, to Patong about 40 min, Karon and Kata beaches around 50 minutes. The bus to Phuket Town takes one hour. The airport itself is easy to get through and is small enough to make luggage collection quick and simple. The good news is that there are regular flights into Phuket from Bangkok alone and three of these operators are ‘no frills’ airlines. Phuket is also accessible internationally from and to Hong Kong, Singapore, Incheon (S. Korea) and Kuala Lumpur. It’s also possible to island hop from Koh Samui to Phuket using Bangkok Airways. Having arrived, there are a number of ways of reaching your resort location. Needless to say, there are plenty of people outside the terminal building offering to help – at a price, of course. Metered taxis are available, but there are not too many of them around. They are to the right as you come out of the arrivals building, at the far end. To the left as you come out of arrivals, there are 8 seated mini vans which will take you to your hotel, but of course you have to stop at everyone else’s hotel as well. There is also an Airport Bus but only goes to Phuket Town Bus Terminal. It does stop on the way but not at any of the coastal resorts. Journey time is one hour from the airport to Phuket Town.

Public Transport

The most widely used ‘taxis’ are bright red tuk tuks. These are not the 4 seated variety as in Bangkok but hold about 6-8 people. Unlike the meter taxi, arrange a price before getting in. There are public buses, which are bright blue, with open sides. There aren’t any real schedules, but if you see one and want to get on, just wave – there are no official bus stops.
