How to get here?

From the Phuket International Airport

Option # 1

The most cost effective way is to hop on the Airport bus. Please note
that this bus departs from the departure floor. The fare will be Bht
On arrival at the Phuket central bus terminal we are only 10 mins walk
away or alternatively you could opt to jump on local bus # 1 ( green &
yellow colour which will cost you Bht 10.00... Then simply alight at
the Thai Airways central town office ( Tell the bus driver (KARN BIIN
THAI NAI TA - LARRD -SOT)( in Thai ) - we are purple building directly
opposite !


You could hop for a limousine transfer both shared and private - this is
expensive and in our opinion not worth the price. Furthermore as the
driver is on commission from the shops etc, he will endeavor to sell you products and
services on- route - so be prepared to be seriously hassled ( sometimes very frustratingly so ) please be firm but not rude.!
