Phuket Bus Stations

There are two major bus stations in Phuket: Phuket Bus Terminal 1 and Phuket Bus Terminal 2. Phuket Bus Terminal 1 is located in the centre of Phuket Town. Phuket Bus Terminal 1 used to be the main bus terminal for the island but now it serves a limited range of destinations within Phuket itself and to destinations not far from the island of Phuket such as Phang Nga.

The three most popular local services from Phuket Bus Terminal 1 are:

Wat Khao Rang in Phuket Town
Wat Khao Rang in Phuket Town

Phuket Bus Terminal 2 is the island’s main long distance bus terminal. Phuket Bus Terminal 2 is located 4 km to the north of Phuket Town. This is where you need to go to get a bus to destinations such as Bangkok, Chumphon (for Koh Tao), Chiang Mai, Krabi and Pattaya. There is, however, virtually no public transport from Phuket Bus Terminal 2 to other destinations in Phuket except for generally overpriced local taxi services.

The best option for travelling cheaply to the popular beach resorts in Phuket is to use the shared taxi service to reach Phuket Bus Terminal 1 and travel onward from there. The shared taxi to Phuket Bus Terminal 1 departs from platform 12 at Phuket Bus Terminal 2 about every once every 20 minutes from 06:00 to 20:00.
