  • Phuket Bus Terminal 2 and Prices

    New Bus Station at the Entrance of Phuket Town

    Travelling from and to Phuket without spending a fortune on taxi or flights can be challenging. Even finding the necessary information to reach nearby Krabi and Khao Lak isn’t that easy. Here are some prices and schedules to help you orientate yourself.

    Phuket’s Bus Terminal 2 on Thepkasatri Road leading out of town is relatively new and handles all passengers coming to and leaving the island. As you enter the large building you will find ticket counters to the left and right to specific destinations.

    Take your time in choosing a window and compare and contrast fares as prices can vary to the same destination depending on the bus type. The bus Terminal is also the place to catch mini-buses to Koh Lanta and Krabi. Prices are non-negotiable.

    Do make sure that your bags are securely locked if you store them in the bus's luggage compartment.

  • Carrying on through the terminus, a left-luggage counter stands to the left and to the right a 7-Eleven lookalike B&B supermarket sells all the essentials you will need for your journey. Here, you’ll also find public payphones and a large-screen LCD television set high on the wall.

    In the midst of the large departure area stands two rows of reinforced plastic seating as well as nearer to the waiting buses. At the far end of the departure hall is a taxi rank with a list of destinations and prices with public toilets to one side as well as several snack concessions.

    Nearby Phuket Bus Station

    Two-hundred metres north of the bus terminal 2 and on the opposite side of the road is Supercheap, a veritable monster of a shop that sells everything from computers to crackers so if you have a few hours to kill before your bus leaves, wander over and have a look.

    And if all else has failed and you cannot find the bus you need, take heart: Right next to the building is a used car dealership…
