Where’s the new Phuket Bus Terminal?

As Cape Panwa Hotel’s concierge I have been asked by our head office to compile a list of frequently asked questions. I thought I’d share my list on this blog as well, as some readers may find the information useful on their next trip to the island . I’ll start with the popular 

Where is the main inter-province bus terminal in Phuket?”

After undergoing some difficulties during construction,  the new Phuket Bus Terminal was eventually completed earlier this year.  It is located just outside Phuket Town on Thepakasattri Road – opposite Supercheap and close to Wat Korsit (two more places that staff are often asked about).

The Phuket Bus Terminal is clean and convenient - there are seats to sit in while waiting, snacks on sale if you are hungry and comprehensible signs in plenty. When I went down, there was even personnel pointing tourists to the right waiting area for their bus, I think they were actually students practicing their English but that doesn’t matter.

Now if only the company will let me try out one of the yellow bus?

The special yellow Hua Hin bus next time I visit Cape Nidhra perhaps?
