Phuket - How Do I Get There
It can be a bit daunting going to a new place. My aim is to give you as much help as possible.
Flights from Heathrow to Phuket are frequent. There are many Cheap Flight websites to help you. I still use www.lastminute.com or www.skyscanner.net
Expect to pay anything from £350 to £600 for most of the year. BUT be warned....December 10th to Jan 5th is THE expensive time. It's when 'the kids break up' and parents are ripped off for being daft enough to have children. I have always thought that this should be the cheapest time to travel (School holidays) to help families...but then I'm not the mercenary owner of an Airline Company.
Be patient with your search as there are a multitude of airlines offering you their services at competitive rates...and you could get a surprisingly cheap deal in the £400 range.!
I fly direct to Phuket. I tend to use Emirates or Ethihad. Heathrow to Phuket costs in the £480 to £650 range. I try to aim to pay about £530. These flights are direct (return) but do include one stop. Keep an eye on the wait times in the airport. The shorter the waiting time, the more expensive the flight...usually!!
Once you are at Phuket airport, wander outside and get your taxi to the house. This will cost you 1,000 Baht maximum.
You will need the house address for the taxi. and for the Immigration Form you have to fill in on the plane. The address is:
Phuket Private Lagoon; Moo 6; 90/10 (House number); Chai Faa West Road, Chalong, Phuket.
To download a map of Phuket, click this link. You will see Pauls Thailand House with an arrow pointing to its location written towards the bottom left hand side of the map.
