The thing to watch out for is the tax, so even if the fare is HK$228, expect to fork out HK$130 for the tax. We worked out a return fare to Phuket will set you back HK$778, as the tax out of Phuket is a little more at HK$175. That’s just about the cheapest return fare to Phuket we know of. Price varies depending on dates like during Christmas, New Year and other holidays.
