    Hi everyone, we have a late flight arriving into Phuket airport at about 930pm from bangkok and have a few friends flying from New Zealand and arriving at about the same time. We had planned to travel to Patong town and stay there however we were reconsidering staying one night near Phuket airport as we have heard the drive is approx 1 hour to Patong and just want to jump into bed and leave the next morning.

    My questions is: Is there any accommodation near phuket airport or is it basically just an airport with no real urban surroundings? If so can anyone recommend some places to stay? We are all budget travellers so not too keen to fork out the biggest spend for a few hours in a bed, but also don't want to be staying in a shack etc.

    Also if anyone can confirm the cost/timing of travelling to Patong from Phuket airport that would be great.

    I have the same problem. I have an early morning flight to catch from Phuket and need close-by budget accommodation.
    I checked the following link:
    But most of it is sold out.
    Can any one help me with e-mail id for WongLee or By The Sea (their mail id bounced back) or anyother budget for 600-700 THB?
