Day trip to khao lak

Day trip to khao lak

I know this has been asked a lot of times but I can't seem to find the tiny details I need.

My partner and I are currently staying in the JW Marriot. We would like to take a trip to Phuket but spend the day and most of the night there. Coming back as close to midnight as we can.

Has anyone done anything like this before? The tour companies keep offering us a deal but the taxi driver stays with us the while time and this is cost at about 200bht an hour which adds up over the day!

We would just like a simple drop off and pick up, alternatively are there taxis in Phuket that would take us back to khao lak??

It would be patong we would most like to visit

Thanks for any help you can give

Have you contacted Boss of Cheaper than Hotel Taxis in Khao Lak for a quote? If not try him on cheaper_khaolak@ymail.com Also have you asked one of taxi drivers stationed outside the entrance to the JWM? That will give you a good comparison for either a one way drop off or a round trip return. Boss has more taxis going to and from Phuket Airport so is more flexible and more competitive in his quotes. You will be able to book a local taxi from Phuket but I would think late night rates would be very expensive.

You can see Boss's rates in reply #17 in the following link tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowTopic-g297914-i10908-k… but check with him for a return rate.
