Travel Times in Phuket to Chalong Pier

Phuket Island is a lot larger than most new visitors believe. It is around 50km in length and about 12km in width. It takes in about 576 square kilometres of land.

Official reports have the local population at almost 400,000 however some unofficial reports say that there could be up to 1 million people on the island at any one time. The large number of locals and visitors on the island and the long travel distances creates quite dense traffic conditions and at times can hamper travel times making them a lot longer than expected.
