Travelling within Phuket - Other public transportation
Other public transportation
Taxis, motorbike taxis and tuk tuks are available in plenty within Phuket. Tuk tuks are little taxis which are a convenient means of getting around. However, they can be expensive, with a short trip costing around 100 Baht.
Motorcycle taxis can be found around street corners and in front of shopping malls. Fares can range from 20-300 Baht, depending on the distance travelled.
Another means to commute around the island is by boats and ferry. Phuket is also accessible by ferry from Krabi, Phi Phi and the Yao islands. The ferry terminal for Krabi and Phi Phi is at Koh Siree, east of Phuket Town. The ferry arrival point from the Yao islands is on the north eastern side of Phuket.
Motorbikes are available for rent from most of the road side shops. 100cc bikes to 750cc racing bikes are available for rent. Most of the vehicles are not insured and if vehicle damage occurs it can create complications.
What are the must see attractions of Phuket? I am planning to go there in the month of July. I want to know if it will be good. Or will there be any fest or something in Phuket any part of the year? And let me know of some luxurious stay in Phuket.
In continuation with my posts on Bangkok and Pattaya, I will be staying at Phuket for 5 days. Which I think is ample time to cover a lot of places around Phuket. Please let me know which are these places we could visit and what are the sightseeing attractions in Phuket.
