same meter price as bangkok or special phuket price ?

What do you think? They've already approved a special Phuket price again just recently. Hopefully now it will not be yet another government legitimized taxi scam, but I think we both have our doubts. We've seen it, been there, and done that… I have a bit of hope though now that the locals that thought they owned the beaches have been cleared off of them, for the most part now… Will we now hear from the class warfare brigade that this is unfair to poor working people as well? If they can buy a million baht car, they aren't poor! They are getting payed more than a doctor or a university professor, ridiculous!

So flat rate 850 baht to Patong....Meter taxi 750baht plus 100baht "Airport Surcharge"......Sounds up to par with crap leadership vs scams.

This is the kind of idiocy we could do without here.

Those numbers are made up by you. You are taking a dig against the military because you are a deluded red Takky fan boy.

Why don't you wait a few days and see what the real numbers are ? THEN if they are as your made up numbers, maybe some criticism would be warranted...

Meanwhile can you keep your bitter bile to yourself ?

I'm about 100% certain that green plates won't have meters installed. There would be a huge uproar in all the local rags if this were to be implemented ( even though it should be necessary to have a meter to get a taxi license IMO).

To someone else asking about Bangkok fares, "new fares" were introduced earlier this month or late last month and they are about 2.5-3 times higher than Bangkok, and about the same price as being quoted now, with a few exceptions.

Calm down dude. He was quoting the price from the video. He didn't make it up. You are the only one spewing bile here.

Know nothing about it. Please elaborate ?

Sarcasim.

Phuket Airport to Patong 100 baht - but customer must pay 700 baht "Airport Ticket." Get it?

Reasonable taxi fares, so not complaints against the taxis - just shift the rip off to "Airport Ticket" price, which should take them about another 10 years to address. biggrin.png
