Anyone got a list of current taxi fares on Phuket, preferably from Karon

Hi, as far as I know taxis can take you to Karon from the airport but the restrictions put on them from the Tuk Tuk operators mean they cannot pick you up.

So for short trips use them if you HAVE to.

If I’m out for the day I use a hotel car or as others here do book a recommended driver. It ends up cheaper unless you have a large group.

Hotel cars and private drivers have weird stuff like seat belts and air conditioning if you are into that sort of thing.

Do a search for drivers, and taxis. Lots of previous advice.

Enjoy

#1 is referring to meter taxis.

The normal taxi's or tuktuks are the same: same price, same point of origin, same drivers.

Hi ,

We have just returned from Phuket, we hired a minibus for the 5 of us & it cost £40 for the Day. The drivers name was Mr Vit & we booked him through Daj whose number is on this forum somwhere.

Enjoy.

Hi,

Last June we paid the following for a tuk tuk (or private car masquerading as a taxi):

Karon - Karon 100 baht

Karon - Kata 200 baht

Karon - Patong 300 baht

Airport - Karon (Hotel car 850 baht)

Note - this year we have booked Manop for airport/Kata hotel @ 600 baht - http://showmephuket.com/services.htm

Last year - Private tour through Exquisite Tours & Travel wexquisitours@yahoo.co.th

7 hours - 1200 baht

This year Manop is listing a 7 hour tour on his website for 800 baht

Regards Jeff

Thanks Jeff from Sydney. Just returned from a spell at Karon and the taxi fares were within the range you quoted - May 2010.

Hi, Just arrived back home from Karon Beach.. and from personal experience, you are best to contact Ms We at:

wexquisitours@yahoo.co.th

She organised loads of great things for us, including transfers to and from everything, and at bargain prices. You can trust her.. we did.. and it paid off big time.. EXCELLENT HOLIDAY!

Cheers
