How to Get Around
The most convenient way to get to Phuket is by flight (simply click here). Rather than hailing a taxi from HKT – Phuket International Airport most of our Go Places Recommended Hotels™ offer airport transfers, and we do recommend you book these ahead (find details provided in each hotel listing). Alternatively you may want to pre-book or book a taxi (with our partners grab.com), hire a private car (with our Phuket car rental partners sixt.com), opt for a more luxurious VIP Limousine Service (with plt.limo) or skip from area to area on a fun island Tuk Tuk or a Songthaew (baht bus). These are the most ideal ways to get to and around Phuket.
