How to Get from Bang Tao to the Airport and Other Destinations
Bang Tao Beach is located on the north-west coast of Phuket. Are you thinking how to get from here to Ao Sane Beach, Bang Rong Pier, Patong, Phuket International Airport, Bus station Phuket-2 as well as to Pak Bara Pier? Public transport, taxi, and private transfer are at your disposal.
Taxi from Bang Tao
There are a lot of taxis at the resort. There could be private cars or tuk-tuks. You will be able to find them next to big shopping centers and hotels or catch right in the street. Almost all the cars are equipped with air conditioners for a comfortable trip.
Both modes of transport have almost the same fare, which is quite high. The price will depend on the route, as well as the distance to the destination point. Almost all the cars are equipped with taximeters but it does not prevent the drivers from uprating the price. They can intentionally drive along the same places in circles. It is better to negotiate the fare in advance to avoid the deceit. Also, do not forget to haggle with a driver.
The average rate on the island is as follows: 1 km of the trip will cost you 0,6-0,9 dollars, and a minimum fare will be about 6 dollars. The price for a trip is negotiated per car, not per passenger. If you choose a car rather than a moto-rickshaw, you will be able to get some luggage with you.
Phuket International Airport is located about in 40 minutes from the beach. It will cost you 20 dollars to get there from Bang Tao by taxi, and 18-24 dollars to get to the city itself. If you need to get to Ao Sane Beach, the driver will charge you 9-12 dollars for a trip.
On the island, it is also possible to order a car for the whole day. A car with a driver booked for 6 hours will cost approximately 60 dollars, and 75 dollars for a longer period. The final price will depend on the route you will take and the places you will want to visit. The taxi drivers usually offer a fixed price for the trip like that and ask to pay the gas mileage, which is often costly for a client.
Transfer from Bang Tao
If you have bad sense of direction and fear to come across a dishonest driver, the better option for you is to travel by a private transfer.
You can book a car right on the Kiwitaxi website. You should fill in the booking form with your contacts and the information about pickup and drop-off points. One should make a full or partial prepayment to confirm the booking. The rest of the amount should be given to the driver at the end of the trip.
The transfer will take you from Bang Tao to Phuket International Airport in just 30 minutes. The minimal fare will be about 30 dollars, and the maximum price will be around 130 dollars.
If you need to get to Pak Bara Pier, you can also book a Kiwitaxi car. Our professional driver will take you to the destination point in 7 hours, while the fare will be from 258 to 296 dollars, depending on the car class you will choose.
Public Transport from Bang Tao
The main mode of transport on the shore is the taxi. But if you want to save some money, you can get from the beach resort by bus.
There are no bus stops on Bang Tao, that is why if you want to get to the neighboring resorts or to the airport, you will have to walk to Surin Beach. It is about 20 minutes far away on foot. From there, you will be able to get to Phuket-2 bus station by one of the public buses. The fare will be approximately 0,9-1,5 dollars.
It is possible to get to Pak Bara only through Phuket. It is better to take a ferry which goes 1 time a day, and whose travel time is about 7 hours.
One can get to Phuket International Airport directly by minibus for about 5,4-6 dollars.
