After 6 years, we're returning to Phuket, staying in Rawai for 5 nights at the Rawai Palm Beach resort. Some of the recent reviews don't seem as positive as I'd hoped, but we're not there for a hotel as we'll spend more time our of our room than in...
I was wondering if there's any recent advise from people who stayed in the area about the best way to get around from Rawai. We wish to visit the Phuket town night market, and maybe a shopping excursion over to Karon or Kata. However, we heard that the hotel has its own taxi 'rates' that are quite high. Can you find transport easily in Rawai? Or should we arrange transfers ourselves (i.e. private drivers)?
Lastly, we will go to Krabi after Rawai and wish to get a direct boat/ferry. Has anyone used either of the following and / or booked on line:
Thanks in advance,
