    To Rawai From Airport

    Next week, I will be arriving at the Phuket airport around 8pm and need to get to Rawai. What are my options and approximate costs?

    You can get a Limo taxi at 800 baht or when you come out of the terminal turn right and walk to the very end and get a metered taxi not sure how much maybe 500 baht

    AOT Taxi stand is in arrival hall. You can get a limo ( van) too. Illegal touts ( sedans ) will be all over you aggressively while still in airport lobby. 800 to Rawai is the ridiculous price.
    Metered Taxis are scarce , on purpose and you pay 100- 200 baht " airport service charge, Ka."

    Go outside, turn right, look for the yellow and green taxis.
    500 baht to Rawai 6 months ago in the height of high season, last time I took one.

    Yep...that's what I did-500 baht no bullshit. Actually, the driver did stop briefly to pick up his girlfriend, but no big deal. Thanks again for the replies...back to Nai Harn Beach!

    After a great week in Southern Phuket, I'm heading back to the land of sticky rice tomorrow. I felt I should report on at least one thing. I had the privilege of frequenting one of the nicest salons that exists anywhere in the world. The owner's choice in wall photos is truly exquisite...enjoy!
