Phuket International Airport


We arrive in Phuket next Friday night at 9pm (21st sept 2012) and was wondering what the Bill Bentley Pub is like at the airport?

We were hoping to catch an Australian rugby League (NRL) semi final as it starts around the time we arrive.

Does it have any TV's and does it so Australian and English sports like many of the bars and club in Thailand do?

Thanks for your help guys

AFAIK there are no bars available for arrivals at the airport. There are 2 bars just outside the arrivals hall, but they are hardly worth the name, so I would say: make your way to your hotel asap and watch in a bar close to your hotel.

Very true Joanie. The game will be over by then so I suggest maybe watch the replay on ninemsn.com.au when you get to the hotel......unless one of our Aussie travellers spoils the result before you get there.

Bill Bently is located on the departure hall (2rd floor) you may go up to check it out for sure if is still the time of the broadcast.

Hi Shaun

There is a Bill Bentley Pub located in Mai Khao and the decor looks like the same as the pub at the airport. Perhaps you can contact them here to find out?
