Cheapest transport around Island?

Staying at Katathani in Kata Beach for a week while here in Phuket. Lovely location but about 30 minutes out from Patong.

We want to visit Patong and also see all the main attractions - Big Buddha, temples etc. Wondering the cheapest way to get around and to/from the main areas?

Our hotel does have a taxi service but it is 500 THB to get to Patong (around $17 Australian).

You can hire a driver for a day trip for around 1200 baht so you will be able to see all the sights. For local areas a taxi/tuk tuk will probably be the easiest way but is expensive.

Why not hire a car and do most of it yourself, although not advisable to drive into Patong.

We have hired our own car each time we go to Phuket. Patong is crazy traffic but if you drive in, just park in the underground car park of Jungceylon for the day. You can walk to the beach, Otop markets etc, and the parking fees are cheap. We pay around $35 a day for a small car. Really pays off if you drive around the island sightseeing. Taxis are very expensive.

Make sure you check to see if the car has got its spare wheel other wise you will end up paying when you return the car
