    Getting around in Phuket

    I will be in Phuket next week for some maritime related safety courses in the north of the island, and will be staying in a hotel in the Mai Khao area as it is near the training facility.

    Do Uber / Grab operate on the island or is there a better way to get from Mai Khao to the kind of markets etc that my wife will demand as she is Thai (and a woman) - and thus not particularly interested in resort life

    Grab works. Uber does not. However....




    Toot toot I would assume that as your missus is Thai she will be just fine.

    indeed, and I simple said that as she is Thai, she will be just fine getting around whilst he's getting his off the shelf safety cert.

    You'd be surprised. It is the only UK Marine and Coastguard Agency approved training centre in SE Asia

    Just got back from Phuket.

    Once I compared the prices, I didn't use Grab.

    I used these guys for airport pickup/return and a couple of tours.

    Couldn't fault them for reliability, price etc.

    Good to know that entrepreneurs still exist.

    Will the taxi mafia beat them up now for stealing customers?
