I have never used the tuk tuks. I rent a car at the airport ( Nine Car Rent) for 1000 baht a day.  The best way. Don't need it at night as we stay local

 

 

how much is the deposit?

you can always settle your fare prior to commencement of the trip.lesser chance of problems that way.

That’s all too hard for good folk here tho, experts from afar mostly. Their monthly fix of anti Phuket rant!

Shows comp0late lack of concern for the Tourist that supplies approximately 15-20% pf Thai GDP.

Why be polite to them TELL them to sort it or their licences will be withdrawn for LIFE !! That is of course if they have any that is !!

Amazing that they actually have to be ASKED not to do things that are <deleted> common sense in any civilized society. Phuket is such a shithole. Never again. Either they get rid of the taxi mafia or get rid of tourists, can't have both!!

Its like keeping tigers with chickens and asking the tigers to stop eating them.

As soon as you look the other way Bam.

What I do not get is the contradictions .

 

on one hand authorities asking for thais to stop attacking foreigners and to be good hosts , on the other hand immigration is verbally raping foreigners, hardly welcoming 

 

so it’s either good hosts or not ?
