Phuket Airport Bus to Patong

Phuket Airport Bus to Patong
Phuket Airport Bus fleet

Phuket Airport Bus Express provides transportation service from Phuket International Airport to Patong with stops at some of the main areas on the way.

This is a good alternative to taxi and to the tricky join-in minivans, it's convenient if you are on a budget or if you are travelling alone.

At the airport you can find the buses under the bridge, look for the sign "Airport Express"

This is also a good solution to go from Patong to Phuket International Airport if you want to avoid a taxi. The bus stop in Patong is at Jungceylon Shopping Mall.

There are 6 air conditioned buses, each one has 30 comfortable seats and a luggage storage area. Tickets can easily be purchased directly on board.

As you can see in the map below, our office is located at just few steps from Kathu Intersection bus stop, so it's also easy to use this transportation service if you want to come to Easy Day Thailand office.

PROS:
  • Cheap
  • Reliable
  • No annoying and unwished stops at some travel agency on the way.
  • Gives the chance to see part of Phuket Island along the way.
CONS:
  • The whole ride between the Airport and Patong takes about 2 hours while it would be much faster with a private transfer.
  • In Patong the bus stops only at Jungceylon Shopping Mall, so depending on your hotel's location you will probably need also a taxi ride to/from the hotel.


There are 9 daily departures almost every hour:
