Transport for 5 from Airport to Karon?


Could anyone confirm if there are "official" larger taxi's / mini-buses that will take 5 Adults + luggage from the airport?

I know there are the cheap mini-buses, but we don't fancy going via other hotel's / travel agents en-route, so are just seeking the best alternative.

Our hotel quoted us 1200 baht, so may go with that if there is nothing suitable or cheaper.

Thanks in advance.


ps. I did check the FAQ but could not find anything specifi to 5 passengers etc.

hello, our family of 5 just returned Jan 1. Great time!! We used Daj for transportation needs. Daj has a newer Toyota van & speaks English quite well. Airport, tours to elephant trek, Wat Chalong, Big Buddha, shopping, & the best Thai food (on the water too!!) we had while there in Phuket. We also stayed in Karon, Hilton. email Daj @ kanidaj@hotmail.com
