Chennai is a metropolitan city located on the eastern peninsular region of India. Though located in the south, the city has decent connectivity with all the other cities within the country as well as outside it. Though the best way to travel from Chennai to Phuket is by air, the information given below gives a detailed description on how to reach Phuket from Chennai:
By air: The best way to travel from Chennai to Phuket is by air as the rates are cheaper than other cities in India. A direct Chennai to Phuket flight can be boarded from the Chennai International Airport up to Phuket International Airport. Both the airports are well connected to the respective cities, and therefore, offer a time saving and convenient travel experience. Chennai to Phuket flight distance is around 2000km, and the flight duration from Chennai to Phuket can be around 7 to 8 hours. The fares are reasonable during the off-season and is great for budget travelers.
By rail: There are no direct trains from Chennai to Phuket. However, one can travel by trains after reaching Bangkok, Thailand. All the cities in Thailand have a well-connected railway network that is very well maintained and gives a nice traveling experience to the people, but Phuket, being an island has no such services. One can take a train to Singapore and then take a bus or ferry to Phuket.
By road: Reaching Phuket by road can be very tiring and time-consuming. Apart from this, one needs to have a high-budget for this. The Chennai to Phuket distance is around 5700km, and the route that one must take is Delhi- Myanmar- Thailand. There are many documents required for the same. Apart from the Thailand visa, one must have a Myanmar visa, and various other such documents. Traveling to Phuket by own transportation requires security money for the vehicle which is 200% of the vehicle’s total value. This makes the whole road trip plan from Chennai to Phuket expensive and full of hassles.

Anand's 7 days trip to PhuketThe trip was good, thanks to Mr. Rahul Khantwal he well supported. Things that I didn't like: 1) The city tour, in city tour only things that they covered was Big Buddha and Chalong temple nothing gets suggested more from their side, you have to explore from your own. 2) On the first day, they asked for extra money by saying the national park fee for the coral island in the quotation they mentioned 2 national park fees but while the trip they ask for 3rd island too, that I didn't like to because they didn't mention that in there original quotation. 3) At the starting of the trip, they start adding unnecessary issues, like Phuket to Karbi transfer will be via ferry but in my quotation, it is clearly mentioned it will be by road. 4) Last and important thing, keep everything in writing because at the end agents get changed and they do not care what they talked about initially.
Darra's 6 days trip to PhuketExcellent services by Tripoholic. Well planned budgeted trip. Gaurav ji n sree were also excellent in their work... Night out at Patong beach, Bangla street in Phuket. Location of Hotel in Phuket was very near to patong beach and Bangla street. Swimming pool was V gud in both the hotel at Pattaya and Phuket. Indian night clubs in Pattaya was the best. Also enjoyed shopping in Indira Market in Bangkok. Madamme Tusaad should not be missed. James Bond Island is worth watching. Overall well planned and executed by Tripoholic..

Sagarvakharia's 5 days trip to PhuketHi This is the first time i did online booking and selecting Travel Triangle was not bad choice after all. My Travel guide Mr. Saket did amazing job in providing respective quotations of the destinations. His follow ups are very good too. If anyone considering for the online booking, give TT a chance and experience the magic. Here are still adding some Pro's & Con's of My trip. Pros - 1. Gave all the related information in quotation as required for the destination. 2. Made all the suitable arrangements perfectly. 3. Agents were very Friendly and didn't loose cool. 4. Hassle free sites for payment process. 5. On Trip assistance was amazing. 6. Very comfortable with overall experience. Cons - 1. Travel ticket could be made cheaper. 2. Hotel bookings were costlier compared to existing rate. 3. More locations in city tour could be added in the same package.
Mohit's 6 days trip to PhuketAll things were good.. but there was one mismanagement in tickets provided by team. Due to which I paid extra money 800 bhat which was not required in 4 islands trips. I talked with team for this but was not helpful. Rest all was good. Patong Beach, I loved and enjoyed the most.
