Distance from Patong to Khao lak

Hello,

We are planning a trip to Phuket. We will be staying in Patong for a few days. Then heading north to Khao Lak. What is the distance and how long would it take? Any suggestions as to the best mode pf transport would be most appreciated. Should we hire a driver?

Many thanks

Hi,

We hired Mr Sam and the journey took 1.5 hours and cost 1500 baht.

Hi, we hired a 4 wheel drive and drove ourselves, very easy, good roads. We left Patong around 9am and got to Khao Lak in about 1.5 hours. On the trip back we made a few stops (sightseeing) and were back in Patong by 7pm for dinner. Are you staying in Khao Lak? One day was definately not long enough for us. Its so beautiful there. Sue

It possible to drive to Khao Lak on any car - 4wd or 2wd - because good enough road there, no offroad. And road signs is everywhere so you will se whet way to Khao Lak. I hope you not mistake about Khao Lak and Khao Sok - different place, Khao Sok national Park it 250 km far from Phuket, Khao Lak only about 100 km. Driver maybe good if you not driving too much, you willbe not tired. But if you like driving - drive by youself good view and air perfect!!))

You can get a bus from Phuket Town they leave every hour or so, they go direct and cost less than 100bht. Its easily the best and cheapest way to go tell the conductor where you are staying and they will drop you at the closest point.
