OrBorJor back in charge at Chalong Pier | Thaiger

CHALONG: The Phuket Provincial Administration Organization (OrBorJor) was on August 1 back at the helm running operations at Chalong Pier after cutting ties with Chokaree Tour Co Ltd, the company previously enlisted to collect berthing fees and run the pier on the OrBorJor‘s behalf.

A team led by OrBorJor Vice-President Chaowalit Na Nakorn visited the pier on August 1 to inspect the operation and staff.

The OrBorJor will now collect fees at Chalong Pier as follows:

  • Use of a boat: 10 baht per person, charged to boat operator;
  • Luggage transfer by OrBorJor vehicle: 100 baht;
  • Luggage transfer by personal vehicle: 200 baht;
  • Luggage transfer by private truck (six wheels or more): 300 baht;
  • Anchorage fee: 100 baht per boat, per day;
  • Car parking: 20 baht for up to an hour; 40 baht from one to 24 hours.
  • Bus parking: 50 baht.

    Allegations of Chokaree Tour not fulfilling the conditions of the concession contract with the OrBorJor led to Lamphun Tangnoi, managing director of Chokaree Tour Co Ltd, requesting  the contract be mutually annulled.

    Chalong Pier services operate daily from 6 am to 8 pm.

    For further information contact Phuket Provincial Administration Organization. Tel: 076-211877.
