cost of taxi from Phuket airport to Phuket Graceland

Just wanted to check the price of a taxi from Phuket airport to Phuket Graceland.

Is 800bht correct?

Im flying in from Koh Samui on a Sunday afternoon. Am I likely to be in a long queue waiting for a metered taxi?

Trying to establish if I should go by taxi or pre-arranged transfers with the hotel which I know will cost more.

Visiting Thailand since 1973 and I reluctantly accept that the "taxi mafia" are alive and well in Phuket; prices are 3-4 times higher than any other tourist region of Thailand. Last October we paid 800 baht for an airport taxi to Karon Beach; however, frequent visitors say that if you know a driver (and make arrangements before landing) you can do it for 200-400 baht.

Even drivers you know are on the bandwagon. 800 baht each way. Everytime the taxis put up prices so do they.

You just can't win.

Dave, to Karon its about a 100km round trip to Karon. Fuel is about 38Bt a litre. So depending on the type of car, it would be unprofitable to consider it that low.

Was in Patong in May and the taxi rate was still the same.. 600 baht oneway to central Patong, using the Public Taxi stand. Get the driver's business card and call him/her at least 24 hours prior your departure date to get the same rate.. Otherwise, other taxi service in town will charge more.. (Best to get the hotel's concierge or front desk to call for you..)

I believe the Graceland resort is in Patong and not Karon...
