After 4 years of construction and traffic mayhem, the new underpass road at the 5-road Chalong circle intersection has finally opened on 1 June 2019!

This main traffic artery connects the Rawai and Nai Harn area with the rest of Phuket island and is essential for the movement of traffic to and from this part of the island.

The Long-awaited Chalong Circle Underpass Road Finally Opens!

The news come as a huge relief for the hotels, businesses and local residents operating and living in our area.

Our part of Phuket Island can now be reached easily once again and without a 20 plus minutes wait in the notorious traffic jam at the circle.

The modern underpass road/tunnel is about 500 meters long and connects Rawai with ChaoFah West Road leading up to Central Department store and Phuket International Airport.

The tunnel is very well light and looks safe to drive through as you can discover in the video published together with this blog post.

We look forward to welcoming more tourists and local residents in Rawai and Nai Harn to experience this beautiful and authentic part of Phuket Island, where people come to relax and escape from the busy tourist centres located on the West Coast of Phuket Island.

Rawai and Nai Harn offer you some of the best beaches in Phuket and large choice of local Thai and seafood restaurants run by families since generations.

We are also home to some of the finest hotels and dining venues catering for those looking for a more refined environment and taste.

See you in Rawai and Nai Harn!
