With a vibrant reputation, Patong is the major Phuket beach destination. Combining water sports, sun-bathing, suit tailoring, fine dining, luxury resorts and a renowned nightlife; everything you could ever need is crammed into this stretch of beach!
Patong's popularity stems from the beautiful beach it hosts. Although there are now plenty of other attractions, ... More>the beach still remains the hub of all activity. Lined with sun shades, vendors keep sun worshippers fed and watered with delicious Thai snacks and cold drinks. Beachside massages are also offered for the ultimate level of relaxation. However, if it's a bit more activity you're after you could consider renting a jet ski and whizzing across the ocean into the sunset for a true thrill, not to mention- you'll look pretty cool too! Behind the beach lies Thaweewong Road where you will find all the amenities a traveller will ever need including internet cafes, supermarkets and keen tailors.
When the sun does set over Patong and people emerge from their Patong hotels you will notice a distinct change as the area changes faces for the night time crowd. Neon lights soak the streets and restaurants kick into life. Soi Bangla is a major tourist attraction as it is teeming with go-go bars and girls. After a night out, retreat back to your Patong hotel for some well deserved rest.
