Public transport only connects Phuket Town to the beach towns. There are few full-size buses that run these routes, but most of the lines are operated with ‘songthaews’, which are like small trucks with a roof. Most buses start from the local market at Ranong Road.

Tuk-tuks and cabs are a common way to get around in the town. There are two types of taxis – one is the normal sedan-style cabs (the taxis are yellow and red with a sign on tops that says “Taxi-Meter”). The second type is all the random vehicles that act as unofficial taxis. You can even ask your hotel to book a metered-taxi for you. There are also bike taxis called ‘motosai’ where the bike riders wear brightly coloured vests. These are not too safe or comfortable.

There are numerous companies that rent out cars, bicycles and motorbikes. Renting a vehicle is a cost-effective way to get around but it isn’t very safe. The winding roads and the Thai road rules pose as problems for foreigners. Avis, Hertz, phuket taxi and National are some of the rental companies that operate in Phuket.

There is not Metro or Rail System in Phuket.

There is not train station in Phuket.

The island of Phuket is too vast to cover by foot but most of the sights can be enjoyed by walking around. One can also take a self-guided walking tour around parts of the town.
