Hi - does anyone know the best way to get to Khao Lak? (we are arriving next week, yay!) I have tried to contact Boss taxi's but am not getting any answer....any advice greatly appreciated!
JuSt keep trying Boss on both his email addresses as advised on Phuket forum or call him on 085-786-1378
The bus station is in the wrong direction but the bus stop is just out on the highway.
Boss around 1200 thb
Taxi to bus stop (200 thb), bus (150thb) + 16 large bottles of Chang from 7-11 total around 1200 thb. :-)
If you get stuck, the airport is full of taxi drivers who can be bargained down to a reasonable price. Time of arrival is also a consideration.
@Jamie, very good comparison on the cash spends on bus. I totally agree with you to take taxi or Boss to minimise the hassle of taking bus. Anyway I was trying to comfort the OP since OP cannot reach Boss.
I am trying to provide information that it is easy to reach Khao Lak from Phuket no matter what happen. Cheers!!!
I think the above statement applies to nearly all of Thailand when trying to get between larger towns and cities. It`s just that most people are not aware and can`t read Thai. When they arrive at Phuket airport the first and last thing a lot of people see is the Limmo Booth charging massive prices.
Mr Boss does offer good prices compared to the price available at the airport. When I arrive and it`s dark I use his service but in daytime I take the beer option :-)
