Khao Lak, just an hour’s drive north of Phuket at the edge of the beautiful Andaman Sea, is one of Thailand’s most peaceful and prized resort destinations, boasting three spectacular national parks and crystal beaches going on for miles. Whether you are visiting Khao Lak for a relaxing escape, or you wish to adventure into the cool tropical forests, it is ideal for those wanting a nature escape.
Phuket Airport is quite a long way away from Khao Lak and there are no direct public transport services available. Nevertheless, you have three options when travelling from Phuket Airport to Khao Lak: taxi, private transfer, or bus. Choosing a taxi or private transfer gets you a speedy, direct transfer straight to your final destination. The total travel time is around 1 hour and 30 minutes and you’ll pay approximately €60 (THB 2335).
Alternatively, the cheapest option is a combined bus trip. You will first have to take the 8411 Airport Bus into Phuket Town and then take another bus to Khao Lak. The total trip takes around 3 hours and costs just €6.10 (THB 235).Welcome Pickups offers meet and greet services and a friendly introduction to Phuket at the same price as a regular taxi.
