2 years ago: 800 baht for a Taxi from Phuket Airport to Patong - is that still the same?

It takes about an hour - I’m not sure thats such a rip off. 


Previously I got fed up of the haggling and attempted rip off and just hired a car for 1000 baht !!! 

Same in Krabi, got sick of haggling with taxis trying to charge extorted prices, it was only marginally more expensive to hire a car !



We booked in advance to get cheapest prices we could find.

Airport to Kata Beach  570bht

Kata Beach to Tri trang beach  400bht

Tri Tranng to airport  570bht


Equivalent fares in a metered taxi in Bangkok would be approx





so yeah still overpriced.
