Departing from Phuket

Phuket International airport, located in the northern part of Phuket Island, is one of the busiest airport in Thailand. It has recently undergone expansion to accommodate the huge amount of air travelers. The best way to get to the airport is generally to drive or take a taxi. If you are staying in Phuket town, there is an airport bus, although it does not run frequently. Other methods of getting to the airport are by public taxi, minibus or limousine. Keep in mind that public taxis don’t have much room for suitcases, so if you have more than 2 suitcases, you may want to consider looking into a minibus instead. The airport’s transportation website has links to information on all these options.


If you are a US citizen, you do not need a visa to travel to Thailand if you are staying for under 30 days, however your passport must be valid for 6 months after your date of entry into Thailand. Even though the flight from Phuket to Bangkok is all within the same

country, you will of course be required to show official government-issued ID to pass through airport security, so make sure to have your passport on hand. For more information on immigrations and security, please refer to the U.S. Department of State’s informational website.

Your arrival in Bangkok

Bangkok Suvarnabhumi (BKK) is the main international airport in the city, and was newly opened in 2006. If you are landing there, you can make your onward journey by train, bus, or taxi. Don Mueang Airport is only half an hour from downtown Bangkok, if you hit the traffic right. From Suvarnabhumi, you can take the Airport Rail Link to Phaya Thai station, which takes about half an hour. From Don Mueang, you can take the A1 bus, which stops at BTS Mo Chit, or the A2 from either BTS Mo Chit or the BTS Victory Monument. From either airport taxis are available round the clock, but will charge a 50B airport surcharge for the journey, with prices into the city usually starting at around 200B.


Crime rates in Thailand are lower than in many parts of the U.S., however, petty crimes and scams are not uncommon. Travelers should keep an eye out for pickpockets, particularly in busy tourist areas, such as the Chatuchak weekend market in Bangkok. It is not unusual for ‘tuk-tuk’ and taxi drivers to attempt to overcharge people, particularly in Phuket. Taxis generally have meters in Bangkok, however if they don’t, make sure to negotiate your fare beforehand. Due to global events in recent years, it is also recommended that travellers be particularly aware at large public gatherings. For the latest travel advisories, please check the U.S. Department of State’s travel advice for Thailand, to ensure that your travel is safe and enjoyable.
