Donsak to Phuket Destination Reviews

Excellent service, kind staff, fair price. They organised a fast and affordable service to the Phuket International Airport. I would recommend this service.

This trip was very confusing compared to other trips I've had. When we got off the ferry, there was a lady who ushered us to a bus even though it said our bus didn't leave until 1130, which was fine. The bus then brought us to Surat Thani and mostly everyone switched buses but they told us we had to wait for another hour for the next one. Then a minibus shows up and we rode all the way to Phuket in that. This was not an issue except that the minibus did not drop us off in the correct place which was a bit frustrating. Either way we made it to our destination safe and sound.
