The final stop for the Airport Bus is Phuket Bus Terminal 1, which is located in the centre of Phuket Town. The journey from Phuket International Airport to Phuket Town takes 1 hour 25 minutes and tickets (which you buy on the bus) cost 100 THB person to get all the way from the airport to Phuket Bus Terminal 1. There are 15 bus services a day leaving at 30 minutes past the hour from 07:30 until the final departure from Phuket International Airport at 21:30.
