Where to catch boats from Phuket to the nearby islands?

Phuket is an island surrounded by more islands, some of them, such as Phi Phi Islands, are world-famous, so it is not a surprise why there are so many piers all around. We list them here to help you locating them on the map as well as planning your trip if you need to get them directly from Phuket Airport. Most piers are on the east coast of the island, and a couple of them in the south.


Rassada Pier

Goes to Phi Phi Island, Krabi, Koh Lanta

Ferry from Phuket to Phi Phi Island

Rassada Pier is a harbour on the east coast of Phuket Town, on the way to Koh Sirey. This is where you will most likely catch a ferry to Phi Phi island, Krabi and Koh Lanta. You can buy your ferry ticket directly at the pier, but surprisingly, it will more expensive than buying it online! There are an ATM machine, a currency exchange counter and a few restaurants. You can leave your car for the day on the vast parking.
