Payphones: There are a number of different types of public payphones in Phuket

  1. Regular coin-operated phones: These can be used for local or long distance domestic calls and are found along busy streets.
  2. Card-phones: These are orange and can usually be found next to the coin-operated pay phones. You can purchase a phone card from convenience stores, such as 7-Elevens, at a post office and Telephone Authority offices.
  3. International phone booths: These are yellow and are found in popular tourist areas, such as Patong and Phuket City. You can purchase a pre-paid card from some mobile phone shops and convenience stores. Alternatively, they also accept credit cards. Call rates are reasonable; a call to the US is around 20 baht per minute.
