This thread is marked as being about Thailand


Was appalled at the transfer rates quoted by some of the hotels from airport!!!

Any one has any idea if taxis are readily available from Phuket airport?

Any idea how much it would be from Phuket airport to Chalong bay??? Any any help will be greatly appreciated;)

Yes, there are a taxi/limousine service inside the airport.They charge e.g. 550 baht to Patong.

If you go out of the terminal you may find independent taxi drivers but they may charge almost same price, but you can get for 450-550 baht fares with them to Patong. Other destination have different rates.

I always use the standard taxi service myself. Some hotels have free airport pickup when you arrive. Some hotels charge a fee for each person. But normal taxis charge a fee for the car no matter how many people you are.

You will have absolutely NO trouble getting a taxi ANYWHERE in Thailand !! Well, almost.
500 Baht sounds about right.
Remember to fix the fee BEFORE you get in!
