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.
