Get a road map of Southern Thailand from nearest 711 after arrival or easier still a free Tourist pack containing a Phuket Map near the luggage collection at the airport.

To take the short cut, turn left immediately outside the airport car park or if you collect your car outside from a local office turn right. Takes you alongside the runway straight to the highway. Turn left and keep left straight through to KL.

Coming back, once on Phuket follow the highway until the sign for the first major turn on the right, signposted Nai Yang Beach (not traffic light controlled) which is the short cut you came in on. If you miss that, the next right turn is the major, traffic light controlled junction signed for the airport.

You may wish to take this route anyway if you have to return your car with a full tank as there is a filling station on your left between these two junctions. Otherwise if you take the short cut you have to go past the airport exit where several depots are located and there is a filling station on your left past the entrance to the airport on the dual carriageway. After filling up turn left then first U-turn to return to airport entrance, if you are returning car there or to the end of dual carriageway if returning to depot there.

Happy travels!

Hi,

Arandora's directions are quite clear, however, if you still require a basic airport map, try phuketindex.com/images/map/00457-map.gif

From airport carpark turn left onto 4031 then left onto 402.
