FAQ And Tips

Tips on how to book cheap Flights from Auckland to Phuket island airport (HKT) in Thailand and what to do, and not to do, while you are on Phuket, Thailand

Whats the weather like on Phuket in Thailand|Phuket|Phuket island|Phuket, Thailand|Phuket island, Thailand|Phuket island in Thailand}?

If your flying in from Auckland the weather on Phuket island, Thailand is warm, very warm, all year round. However, the weather is generally most pleasant on Phuket from late December to March, or even May, when there are clear skies and sunshine. The “hot season” is from April to May, when temperatures reach their highest. The main “rainy season”, or monsoon season, is between May / June and November, or even as late as December over the last decade or so.

Whats the best street food around Phuket island?

That's easy, for me anyway. Once you arrive from Auckland to Phuket island, Thailand you will see little grilled chicken (Kai Yang) street stalls. The chicken is often eaten with sticky rice (Khao Niaow) and sweet chilli sauce. Yum!. Try it for breakfat. Real goooooood 🙂

Can someone from Auckland buy property on Phuket, Thailand?

The short answer is yes. Generally, the key requirements for someone from Auckland buying property or Real Estate on Phuket are the following: A) A deposit of 10% to 20% of total price to be paid on the 'Promise of Sale' (before signing the final contract). B) A foreign buyer has two options: either a 30-year leasehold or purchasing the property through a limited company. Phuket in Thailand Apartments and Villas can be purchased by foreigners as long as at least 51% of the building is owned by Thais. C) Stamp duty is normally 0.50% of the total price. D) Registration fee between 2% and 2.5% of total Phuket island property price plus agent fee. It is also important to know that if you are a non-Thai citizen, you may be subject to specific regulations and in certain instances be required to hold a specific permit enabling you to acquire Phuket island property. This does not apply to properties situated within special designated areas, such as developments on Phuket, Thailand. If you fit into the above them you should be able to buy. We offer complimentary pickup to our 'Phuket Property and travel office, and free concultation, so drop us an email before or after you arrive from Auckland.

Is it safe drink water from the tap around Phuket?

Personally I do NOT drink water from the tap on Phuket island, Thailand, but they say you can? I suggest that once you arrive from Auckland you buy 6 pack bottled water from any local Phuket island, Thailand mini market for drinking. The cheap clear, none branded, bottles, to me, are the best. As with other expats and locals around Phuket, Thailand we do though brush our teeth with tap water, and use it for making tea / coffee etc, but only after boiling a few times. If you are unsure when you arrive to Phuket, stick to the bottled water.

Where is the best places to watch the sunset on Phuket, Thailand?

In my view the beach. Anywhere around Phuket is OK but the best places are: Promthep Cape (Laem Promthep), Big Buddha or Kata Rocks. Anywhere around the west / south side of Phuket island in Thailand.

BIG question! How much is a print of beer or larger in around Phuket island?

The beer or larger prices around Phuket island in Thailand is: Domestic Beer (0.5 liter draught) is around 70 / 90.00฿ while Imported Beer (0.33 liter bottle) will be around 100.00 ฿. Nightclubs, and higher end venues can be a lot more and supermarkets / mini markets will be a bit cheaper. Check out the 'Happy Hour' signs as you walk or drive by. Most bars will have them. I have known people on Phuket island island who only track these events and save a load of money. Everyone to his/her/their own right 🙂

Are flight prices higher on Phuket island in Thailand national holidays?

Bottom line is 'Yes'. This goes for national holidays in Auckland also. Try avoid flying from Auckland in heavy traffic holidays by travelling from / to Phuket island before or after any major holidays.

Is there a smoking lounge at Phuket International Airport (HKT) in Thailand?

Bottom line is yes. If your arriving from Auckland or leaving to go to Phuket International Airport (HKT) in Thailand simply go to the departure lounge, after immigration, and its by a small coffee shop. Be warned. The smoking room is very small and even before you lite up it feels like you have already had 5 cigs 🙂 VAPERS BE AWARE! Vaping (e-cigarettes) is still banded in Thailand 'so say' due to health issues, but in reality for import tax issues. 'On the spot' fines, or threats of jail time by local police. IF you do vape in Auckland, and also try on Phuket, and do get stopped and fined, ask for a police report. That should be fun? Bottom line is to 'just buy cigs' for your holiday. Saves on the headaces.

Yes. You can get free Wi-Fi at Phuket International Airport port (HKT) in Thailand'. When you touch down from Auckland and enter the airport try connecting to the airports access point.

About Phuket

When flying from Auckland to Phuket its good to know that more than 16 million passengers per year fly via Phuket International Airport (HKT) in Thailand, most flying in to enjoy a wide range of tourist services, natural beauty of the world famous Phuket beaches and fascinating tourist attractions.

If you live around Auckland, and have not been to Asia or Phuket in Thailand before, you are likely thinking about Phuket island’s fabulous beaches, sunsets and parties on the infamous Bangla Road in Patong. You might think you have Phuket, Thailand all figured out, but as it turns out, the ‘Pearl of the Andaman’ has more than a few tricks hidden up its sleeve. Most visitors don’t even see the real Phuket while others buy Phuket, Thailand Property for sale and make Phuket their home. Either way. Make sure you make the most of it by getting off the beaten track on Phuket island in Thailand is going to involve hiring your own personal driver or transportation (motorbike or jeep) for the day, or week, then driving, and hiking, over some off-road tracks. Obviously there’s a bit of effort involved and, more than likely, a fair amount of perspiration. But the reward when you get there is often the best uncrowded viewpoints, villages and beaches on Phuket in Thailand.

Architecture and Cafes

It might seem inconceivable, but after flying in from Auckland Airport, and spending a few days laying on the beach on Phuket island in Thailand, you might start craving for a change of scenery. A day trip into Old Phuket Town offers a nice break from the beach shacks on the coast. The Old Town offers an inspiring blend of Sino-Portuguese and Chinese influences and today, the walls are also a canvas for funky street art. What many people don’t realise is that the Old Town is not just a historic relic but a living and breathing community of creatives and coffee or wine lovers.

Phuket Activities

Phuket in Thailand Activities, Waterfalls and Rainforest Retreats

When you first arrive to Phuket island in Thailand from Auckland you will probably associate your first days with postcard ready beaches and sunsets. If, however, you take the time to venture a bit inland, you’ll discover Phuket’s lush jungles, small villages and waterfalls. A trek through the jungles followed by a natural waterfall shower is as close to tropical bliss you can get.

One of the most beautiful places to visit on the island of Phuket in Thailand is the Sirinat National Park located on the north coast. There are also over 100 alternative Phuket activities and tours from taking a magical Phuket tour with your own private local guide to ‘do it yourself’ activities such as: elephant sanctuaries, Phuket Aquarium, Botanic Garden, Tiger Kingdom, ‘Soi Dog’ or the ‘Gibbon rehabilitation project’ while on the island. Browse Phuket island guided attractions ‘suggestions’ – each can be customized just for you to design your own tour.

Foodie Heaven

One thing’s for sure when you arrive from Auckland – you won’t go hungry! Whether you’re looking to sample the spicy local cuisine or want to indulge in some fine dining, Phuket’s diverse food scene has more than got you covered.

Two Thai snacks to try on Phuket in Thailand is either: Kaeng kari ( แกงกะหรี่ ) or Kaeng phak siangda ( แกงผักเซียงดา )

Also try the street food, food stalls and local Phuket market food. The fried chicken, served with sticky rice, or local sate is a winner for a quick snack.

Spirituality

As is true for the whole of Thailand, spirituality and the Buddhist faith are an integral part of life in Phuket in Thailand. While visiting from Auckland visit at least one temple. It will give you a deeper understanding of this island which is so often characterised only by its tourist hot spots. The most iconic religious landmark on the island is the Big Buddha, which commands a striking presence in Karon. Another popular place to visit is Wat Chalong, a large temple located in Chalong on Phuket.

If you’re looking to discover Phuket island, Thailand off the beaten path you might also want to visit ‘The Shrine of the Serene Light’ in Phuket Town. This Chinese temple offers a colourful break from the Thai wats. The shrine used to be a real hidden gem, as the entrance was carefully hidden off in a tiny alley. Now you can easily find the temple thanks to its new striking entrance, but relatively few tourists still make their way here.
