    • Package Transfer Phuket Airport +Ferry Phi Phi + Transfer to Karon

      by joanamopa Online Now Nov 23, 2016 at 4:11 AM

      We will arrive at Phuket Airport at 8:10 a.m. We will need a transfer to go from the airport to Rassada Pier + ferry tickets to Phi Phi tound trip + transfer the following day from Rassada Pier to Karon.
      We have seen the prices at but it can be risky to take them on-line in advance because if the flight is delayed.... so is it easy to find any agency at the airport to contract this package? and it can be more expensive taking everything at the airport or is better buying the tickets separately? What would you recommend us?

      I am planning a trip around 22 Nov this year to Krabi. Then I wish to travel to Phuket by bus. I presume Phang Nga Bay is midway between Krabi and Phuket. Is it possible to take a morning bus from Krabi and stop at Phang Nga Bay. Finish visit to James Bond Island and then take later bus to Phuket.

      Also last week of November, there will be no rains or cyclones in that area.

      Where to stay...

      by walkietalkie2012 Online Now Dec 18, 2015 at 10:33 AM

      First time to Phuket.. coming during the long x'mas weekend next week.. will be there for four days.. wondering whether to stay in Kata, Karon or Patong.. been reading up a bit.. general consensus it that Patong (and Karon) is very commercialised, over-rated, tourist trap, and so on.. initial inclination is to stay at Patong to see what the fuss is all about.. would definitely do some day trips or island hopping to phi phi or james bond island so won't be trapped in Patong for the whole four days...

      I was in Bali a month ago for a few days and really enjoyed the quieter Seminyak area and the beach even though its pretty touristy.. but worried being peak period Patong might not cut it... any thoughts are welcomed.. thanks.
