Q: How is the parking situation in Phuket?
Its not hard to find parking space in Phuket compare with other big cities. Most hotels has free parking service for their guests. The parking space of some hotels in the major beaches (Patong, Kata, and Karon Beach) is not so big, so it may not have enough parking area in high season.

In most public area, you can park without parking fee. But in busy area, you may have to pay parking fee which is not expensive (approximately 5 10 baht/hour).

Dont worry about parking space, normally you can easily find parking space for your car, except in some busy roads in Phuket Town and Patong Beach.

Q: Can I park a car on road side?
Before you park a car, you have to see a sign on road side. In some roads, you cannot park on both sides. Some roads, you cannot park in rush hours (07.00 - 09.00 or 16.00 - 19.00).

There are signs indicate even date or odd date parking in some roads in Phuket Town and on major beaches, such as Patong Beach, Kata Beach, Karon Beach. For example, if the sign indicate you cannot park on even date ("No parking on even date"), you cannot park on the date 2nd, 4th, 6th, ...

So what we recommend is "Don't forget to see a sign every time before you park your car".
