Activities and Transport Costs


Lobbed in Karon yesterday staying at Movenpick with wife and skids 6m/10f. We have Kok Chang elephants tomorrow, and will arrange Phuket Sailboat tour for another day. We have 9 nights then off to Phi Phi for another 3.

We will probably do Phuket Town, Dino golf, Fantasea, day trip to Patong. Any other must do activities? Most of the xtreme stuff is out.

I seem to be worrying alot about transport costs. Is the talk of mafia and scams really that bad?

How much should I be paying for taxi/tuk tuk from Karon to:

- Patong

- Kata

- Phuket town

- Big Budda

- Fantasea show?

Thanks in advance to all posters.

Any shows you see generally include transfers. If you do a City Tour, that will include Big Buddha, Wat Chalong, Cape Panwa, Phuket Town, etc. in a minibus is 200Bt an hour.

The scamming can be bad. But you are aware of it, so just take care.
