Travel to Phuket

Being an island, people often wonder how to reach Phuket easily. The best way to reach Phuket is via taking a flight to Phuket International Airport, which is about 32 km from the centre of the city. Phuket is well connected to different parts of the world through flight and bus services. With numerous flights, like: Jet Airways, Thai Airways, Etihad, Singapore Airlines, and more operating to and fro between Phuket and Indian cities, one can conveniently cover the India to Phuket distance of approximately 3000 kms in 3 hours and 40 minutes or more.

Though there are no railway stations in Phuket, one can either take a bus or ferry from Bangkok up to Phuket. Bangkok to Phuket distance is about 840 km. One can either take a bus or ferry from Bangkok to reach Phuket, depending on their budgets and time.

Given below is our information to help tourists know how to go to Phuket, and how to travel from Phuket to different parts of Thailand.


By Air

Taking a flight from some of the major cities of India like Delhi, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Chennai and Bangalore up to Phuket is one of the best ways to travel from India to Phuket. There are many direct flights available from Delhi to Phuket at a reasonable price. There are connecting flights available from India to Phuket. The nearest airport to Phuket is the Phuket International Airport, which is the busiest airport in Thailand after the Suvarnabhumi Airport in Bangkok. It is well connected to different parts of Thailand. The airport has two terminals in which the terminal-1 is for international flights and terminal-2 is for domestic flights. If one is facing problems in getting flights from India to Phuket, then they can take a flight up to Bangkok and travel to Phuket by air, ferry or road. There are many flights from Bangkok to Phuket daily.


By Road

Traveling to Phuket by bus or car can be quite tedious and time-consuming. India to Phuket route is via Myanmar. There are many documents and other essential reports required for traveling in Myanmar. One needs to pay double the cost of the private conveyance they are traveling with in Myanmar. India to Phuket distance is about 5100 km and it may take days for a person to reach there. However, traveling by road is convenient in Phuket with a number of public conveyances available for people. There are many bus services that connect Phuket with different cities and make it convenient for locals as well as tourists to commute. Pattaya to Phuket distance is about 971 km and traveling by road via bus is an option, however, taking a flight is much more convenient.

This was some information on how to reach Phuket and travel within Thailand to get to see some of the best places and beaches. The city is pleasant with some of the best beaches and spots for water activities. One must visit Phuket once with friends and family.

    • Trip to Phuket

      The trip was wonderful except for a few confusions caused due to improper planning of our agent that resulted in missing few shows and the transfer from Krabi to Phuket was not so great.

      The trip was memorable. We liked the coordination with Deepika. She was extremely helpful and always reachable and she has always helped us beyond her reach. I'm happy that we chose Sumuk International :) There were very few glitches in our trip 1. we were informed we will be having pick and drop to airport on private basis, but the vehicle provided was a mini van and it was not comfortable at all. 2. The local guide in thailand was not easily accessible. 3. During return pickup, there was a misunderstanding by the local guide regarding our drop to the airport , cuz of which we missed the flight. Instead of dropping us at Phuket airport, they dropped us at Krabi airport, and when we enquired about the same,the driver was not able to understand the situation. Then we informed the same to Deepika and shared the screenshot of the messages sent by the local guide, and she quickly responded and helped us and later on the local guide accepted her mistake and rebooked us the flight tickets. 4. But after rebooking, there was no guidance from the agents, and no meal was also booked for us, which we initially booked in our original plan. 5. The worst part is that, we were put to wait for almost 10 hrs in airport and i was with high fever and no one was concerned about us. The last day planning was worst, my only concern is cuz of the agents mistake why we have to suffer for 10 long hrs in airport with high fever ? Deepika helped us a lot and i cannot blame her for all the things happened, But only suggestion is that they could have chosen some better local guide in Thailand . Thanks a lot Deepika! I would definitely plan a tour again with you....

      We booked a trip to Phuket and our first point of contact from Unique Travelz was Sunaina. She made sure that we get the best quotation based on our requirements. She was on point with all the details that I wanted for the trip. From airport-hotel-hotel-airport, sightseeing and all the arrangements done were on point. The drivers were available on time for the airport pick up and drop. Our Itinerary was very simple and was arranged properly through Unique travelz. Ankita from UT ensured that all our requests were taken into consideration. One disappointment was that no prior information was shared with us explaining the sightseeing places and the cost about that. Like when traveling to Phi-Phi islands we were told that national park fee is excluded and we will have to pay it there. But it's not just the National park fee, we also had to purchase tickets for the big boat. No information shared are different classes in the big boat. If we had prior information, instead of waiting at the pier we could have directly bought the Gold class ticket (which we didn't get as it was full house). Similarly, there are other options as well to travel to phi phi islands like a speed boat, private Yacht, etc. All this information could have been passed to us up front. We only booked the sightseeing tour with the agency. Hotels and flights were booked on our own. Overall the experience was wonderful and the agency was prompt with our requests.

    • Trip to Bali

      The Hotels and the Driver plus cab was awesome. However commitment made by exotic trips were completely false.They tried to fool the customer.I don't recommend to use service of exotic trips to anyone. I loosed my around 2000 rupees more which is supposed to be paid to me by the exotic trips. The worst thing is that travel triangle has no control over the agency and they never respond to your queries and complaints once you pay the full amount of your trip.So please be very much sure before selecting exotic trip and travel triangle.

    • Trip to Phuket

      Ashlee Hub hotel patong is excellent for its location and facilities. Rooms are large and hotel staff is courteous. Bankok D Varee xpress Makkasan is a very bad choice of hotel. Rooms are very small and stinky and AC is not comfortable. Its location is very bad due to flyover construction just besides it leading to heavy traffic jam and i dont suggest anyone for it. None of the tour coordiator in bangkok contacted us and kun Vicky is not at all reachable on his phone. Phuket stay and phi phi island visit

      First and foremost i should appreciate Riya for the timely planning and updates from the start even before booking and till our trip got over. It was difficult for me in a way to book and coordinate since i was away from India but she made is really easy for me. My experience in Thailand was great too but i would only have a problem in miscommunication where the agent told me that visa on arrival was only necessary when i reach Phuket Via Bangkok but things were different when i landed where i had to be on a long enough queue and apply for visa with very minimum English speaking people in that airport. Finally i was able to fly before my connection flight departed since asking some English speaking people and advise me about fast track counter for visa which was a big stressful for me. But otherwise my trip had been great. Thanks a lot to Riya and the Team !! I will definately plan my future trips with you guys with no hesitation. Cheers :)

      hotels at bangkok & krabi were good , but at Phuket was worst. cab driver at Phuket was not familiar with the destination (i.e hotel). the WhatsApp group i don't think was worth , it should have been in the manner that every night the plan , schedule, timings for next day should have been messeged & not what just i asked that was replied, the trip could have been more enjoyable & memorable. the travel agent was good but the info provided was limited could have been given more & planned better. overall it was a good trip four island tour was the best

      Trip was fantastic. Our Phuket hotel Jiraporn hill resort was too far from beach, restaurant, and main market that we had spent 400bath daily for travalling. They dont have their own kitchen so we had problem as we were travelling with infant.

      overall experience with travel triangle was very nice. In terms of timely reply to queries, setting up all bookings and allocation of good plan was good. Assigned agents were very helpful. Our trip begins in start week of January and the weather in Thailand was favourable to visit. Phuket, Krabi and Phi Phi islands were the main attractions in our plan. Bangkok jungle safari was good.

      Few Hotels were not good in terms of services and Facility. Also few Hotels were far from good places. Krabi and Phuket were awesome, Phi Phi island day wasted, as there was not plans provided in itinerary.

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    For an extended sojourn, people can choose to hop on an excursion of 3 or 4 days to explore Phuket.

     

    The best way to get around in Phuket is by hiring a car or a bike, because the local transportation like tuk-tuk and taxis may charge you more, and it might be difficult to bargain with them every time one has to travel from one place to another. However, understand all the traffic rules very well before going for the driving experience.

    The plugs used in Phuket are mostly two round pins However, in some areas, the two flat pins plug are also used. The power supply is of 220V at 50Hz.

     

    The best way to reach Phuket is by air. There are many flights available from some of the major cities of India like Chennai, Hyderabad, Kolkata and New Delhi to Phuket International Airport. These flights consume less time and help in making your travel experience less tiring and within the budget.

     

    The currency used in Phuket is Baht. $1 is equal to 30 Baht. However, many restaurants and stores accept credit cards. Money is  required for local transportations and small markets.

     

    The best time to visit Phuket is from November to February. The weather during this time is cold and dry, which makes Phuket suitable for all kinds of water sports and other activities. The vacation experience is enhanced as the humidity is very less, and the beaches are clean.
