I am flying in to Phuket from Bangkok on 26th Dec, and plan to immediately cover Khao Lak, Surin Islands and Phang Nga Bay , and end with NYEs party in Phuket again. I am counting on bus/shared taxis instead of ferrys keeping in mind the cost.
I know you need to take a 90 in taxi ride from Phuket to Khao Lak. But beyond that, how should i cover Phang Nga and Surin Islands ? and where should my overnight stays be?
