ECO Travel Service, Naiyang

Left hand traffic
means that right turns are against the flow of traffic, and passing is on the right hand side. Yielding is to a vehicle coming from right except there is any other road sign. Traffic circle is clockwise: Entering the circle is by moving to left. A red blinking light means: STOP!

As far the official rules.

The most important everyday's life rule is to know that Thai use passing on the right hand side too. Quick motorcyclists pass on both sides at the same time. Leaving the lane even for half a meter might be followed by a collision with a careless motorcyclist.

Airport Pickup (ECOG's guests only)
Phuket International Airport offers 2 different exits for arriving passengers: One for domestic arrivals without passport check and another one for international arrivals with passport check at immigration counters.

For the convenience of passengers 4 taxi stands are available: Two ones within and two ones outside the so called restricted area. ECO Guesthouse works in co-operation with the taxi stand located within the domestic and restricted arrival area. We announce our guests there by phone and fax (for transmitting the names correctly).

Unfortunately none of these busses goes via Phuket airport. The following hint for bus travellers could be helpful to find the way to ECO Guesthouse: Coming from the north (passing Sarasin bridge), leave the bus at Thalang and take the airport bus there (direction airport) until stopover at "Pearl Village Hotel". From there about 250 m walking to ECO Guesthouse.
