Karen,

We just returned from Karon this morning. We used a guy by the name of Sak. He had a nice SUV. I arranged everything through email with him. He speaks pretty good English. ttaweeksak2514@hotmail.com or his phone is 086-6890769 He took us to and from the airport and we also hired him as a driver for the day and had him take us to Big Buddha and Elephant Trecking and to lunch. It was way better than a cab. It was 900 baht from the airport to Karon Beach and 1300 baht for a full day of touring.

Email Sak at ttaweesak2514@hotmail.com It is 900 baht from the airport to Karon. He just took us to the airport this morning. He drives a nice SUV and was very easy to deal with.

Thanks to another user on TA who has used the following man, I have booked with Lek Landen. Email is : leklanden@hotmail.com

He is charging me 800 baht in a brand new land cruiser with air con from airport to Karon. Happy with that and is also very reasonable on pricing to Big Buddha and from and around Karon. He will do package deals.

Very prompt professional response to enquiries. We are travelling in June this year and have already booked and given him flight details and had confirmation back he will be there

About 800 baht. The taxi rank is to the right as you come out of the airport door. We were approached by hawker taxi drivers on arrival - and unfortunately the metered taxi rank does not open until 6am. We were originally 'offered' a fare of 1600 baht to go to Bang Tao Beach but stuck to our guns and finally got it for 800 (after repeatedly ignoring the other offers). It is best to just take a seat and wait and eventually the 'offers' for the fare will come down to a level that you want.

I used a good private driver last month - very reliable, good English, nice clean new car. He charged a friend 900 b to Karon from airport which is about right for a private hire, not taxi. He took us out to Phang Nga for the day - round trip of about 300km for 3000 b. He charges about 2200-2500 b for a full day trip around Phuket, based on your chosen itinerary. His name is Petch and you can contact him on krichpetch.2528@gmail.com
