About Travel to Phuket
Bang Rong Pier is on the North East Coast of Phuket. Bang Rong Pier is 31 km by road from Patong on the South West Coast of Phuket and 23 km from Phuket Town. Bang Rong Pier is, however, more conveniently located for travel to Phuket Airport, which is 18 km away also in the northern part of island.
Travel from Bang Rong Pier
Private taxis in Phuket tend to be very expensive, as they are on most other major tourist islands in Thailand including Koh Samui. Taxis in Phuket don’t use a meter to charge passenger but instead charge on the basis of fixed prices which should be agreed in advance. For the trip from Bang Rong Pier to Phuket Airport expect to pay around 700 THB, and 950 THB to Patong.
A cheaper, but much slower, way to travel in Phuket is a take one of the blue coloured shared taxis which stop near Bang Rong Pier. The journey from Bang Rong Pier to Phuket Town by shared taxi takes around 1 hour. From Phuket Town you can transfer to another shared taxi or minivan for onward travel to one of the beach side towns.
Phuket Town doesn’t have a beach but it does have an interesting Old Town area and a wide range of affordable hotels and restaurants. At the end of the 19th Century and early 20th Century the main industry in Phuket was tin mining. At that time the island attracted large numbers of Chinese immigrants to work in the prosperous tin mining industry and many settled more permanently in Phuket Town. The more successful of this cohort of Chinese immigrants built large mansions in the town in a distinctive arhcitectural style termed ‘Sino-Portuguese’. Several of these mansions are now open to the public to visit most notably the Chinpracha House.
Less grand, but more colourful, are the Chinese style shop houses on the Thalang Road. The Thalang Road is a major tourist attraction and probably the most photographed location in Phuket.
Overlooking Phuket Town is Rang Hill, which you can ascend either by walking or travel by car or motorbike. The views from the top of the hill are good and there are several restaurants which have dining spaces that take good advantage of those views. Wat Khao Rang, which is located on the way to the top of the hill, is worth stopping to visit. This small temple has a range of interesting statues, including a large statue of the Lord Buddha which was the first of several giant statues which have now been constructed on Phuket.
