The trip from Phuket airport to Khao Lak takes just over an hour depending on where you are staying and costs about 1500 baht by txi booked at the booth outside the Arrivals Hall or 1000 baht if you use Cheaper than Hotels taxis based in Khao Lak through Boss on cheaper_khaolak@ymail.com

By bus, you can get the airport shuttle to the bus station in Phuket Town, which is in the opposite direction, or get dropped up on the main highway and catch a bus from there. This is a link to an older but still relevant post on the subject http://tiny.cc/tnr5l
