Complaint Review: Phuket Travel Warning
Whenever possible, avoid getting a tuk tuk, as the drivers of these little taxis charge ridiculously high prices for all of their fares. Just getting a ride through Patong can cost you 400 to 500 Baht, which is half of what it costs to get a taxi all the way from the airport that is an hour away and costs 600 Baht.
The tuk tuk drivers have been known on rare occasions to try and extort more money out of tourists if the tourist is alone or drunk, so you need to be careful of this. Avoid them if you can and always try to get a proper registered taxi which is organized through your hotel if possible.
