Phuket to Nakhon Si Thammarat @ bus Jan 29, 2018
Local authorities say an under construction airport giving access to the far south of Thailand should be finished by the end of 2019. Betong Airport is being built in Yala Province and the local Chamber of Commerce boss says work is progressing at a good pace.
The weekend saw the introduction of a tracking app for buses on Phuket Island. Mobile smartphone and tablet users who download the Bus Beam app will eventually be able to check the progress and location of all the island’s buses as well as intercity ones.
Thailand’s Airports Department issued a statement yesterday confirming Nakhon Si Thammarat Airport had opened up again. The southern Thai airport was closed last Thursday when rising floodwater swamped the runway and essential electrical equipment.
