Taxi prices from cape Panwa


Can anyone help with some info.

My wife and I will be staying at the Cape Panwa hotel next June/July with our son who will be six at the time. We picked the hotel partly because of the laid back location(not Patong which we visited back in 2000),but are now a bit worried that it will be a bit too remote for eating out etc and that Taxi/tuk tuk costs to other areas will be costly.

We know there are a few places to eat out nearby but some nights we might fancy the night market in Patong or Phuket town or Chalong.

Can anybody advise us of prices of the following :-

Driver for the day

Car hire

Taxi from Cape Panwa Hotel to Patong

Taxi from Cape Panwa Hotel to Phuket Town and or Chalong

Also my wife thinks there is a shuttle provided by the Cape Panwa Hotel, does anyone know where it goes and what they charge

any info or advice would be much appreciated.

Thanks for that. Taxis seem quite expensive. I think it's worth looking at hiring a car or driver for a few days. Your list is very helpful and comprehensive.

Hi there

Last year I paid 700 baht for a trip to Phuket w/end markets and the driver waited 3 hours for me, the trip from the airport was 550 baht but looks like prices might have gone up.

I chose a driver a few yrs ago from the list in the FAQ on TA and we had a wonderful day driving around the whole Island, stopping and starting when we wanted. I cant remember the price but did think at the time it was value when compared to local taxis.

The hotel does provide mini vans to Phuket Town, Central Festival shopping and an evening trip to Patong. They are around the 300 baht price so good value. Safe drivers, clean vans and they pick you up again at a designated spot. We had several fun nights in Patong this way then breathed a sigh of relief when we arrived back at the peace of Cape Panwa!

There is a local very cheap bus that starts at the aquarium that I have always meant to try but so far havent...its on the list!

Not sure that I would want to brave the traffic driving myself but then again taking it easy and being very aware of all the bikes etc whizzing around it might be OK certainly much safer than Bangkok!

I have regularly read about a recommended hire company on the Phuket forums....cant remember the name but I am sure a search will find them easily.

There are quite a number of small restaurants around CP these days plus the hotels so its easy to get variety and not pay for taxis.

The driver option does seem like good value and we will certainly research one on TA before we go. We need to organise one to collect us from the airport anyway. As far as the hotel bus goes. If it's 300 baht per person then it's not going to be good value for us, that's going to be about £36 for a few hours somewhere (assuming they will also charge for our son). I think it's looking like a combination of car hire and a driver. Thanks for the advice!

Thanks! I think we'll make the most of the local restaurants and hire a car. Local transport seems very expensive. Last time we went to Phuket we stayed at the Seaview Patong. Perfect location but we thought the CP would suit us better now we have our son. I slightly regret that choice now due to it being isolated. It does look lovely though.
