Moving around in Phuket

Local transportation on Phuket is handled by buses, yellow and red taxis, fast but dangerous motorcycle taxis, as well as ubiquitous tuk-tuks that, unlike elsewhere in Thailand, are actually four-wheeled minivans. Always agree a price before getting into a taxi or tuk-tuk. Car rental in Phuket is well available, but the local traffic is quite chaotic. Motorbikes are also plentifully available for rent.
