About travel to Ao Nang


Phuket International Airport is located in the north of Phuket Island, quite far from the most popular holiday destinations, such as Patong, which are all in the south of the island. Phuket’s main long distance bus terminal, Phuket Bus Terminal 2, is also located in the south of the island, 28.7 km from Phuket International Airport. This is very inconvenient or people wanting to travel from Phuket International Airport to Ao Nang, because if they want to take a public bus to Ao Nang they need to travel south 40 minutes in a taxi to get to the bus station, and then travel back again the same way in order to cross the Sarasin Bridge back the mainland and continue by road to Krabi Province.

Once you take into account the cost of taxi from the airport to the bus station, it’s actually cheaper to to book a direct transfer from Phuket International Airport to Ao Nang.
