Between a sandy creek and a quaint fishing village, a 3-kilometer stretch of golden sand pulses to the beat of millions of visitors each year. This is the most animated Patong beach in Phuket, a hive of activity that offers all sorts of activities and attractions. Turquoise waters invite you to swim and partake in adventure water sports. You can try your hand at jet-skiing or parasailing, or go on a diving or boat excursion to discover the sparkling coastline from a different angle.
Lounge in the generous shade of coconut trees that separate the beach from the road. Within a few yards from the beach, you will find kiosks, restaurants, and Patong beach hotels to stay during your holiday. Enjoy a meal at one of the beach-side restaurants or grab a bite at one of the snacks and drink stalls. You can even enjoy a relaxing massage without ever leaving your beach towel at nearby Spa. The spa treatment is the world’s famous for its mind, body, and spirit benefits.
Phuket Town is located just 15 km from the Patong beach. The town has loads of hotels, restaurants, cafes, nightclubs, and other tourist attractions. The daytime activities are mostly centered on the beach by enjoying water sports, island hopping to soaking under the sun. Kalim, the Northern end of Patong Bay, is a suitable spot to catch the last rays of the sparkling sun on the horizon.
As the darkness sets in, the glittery nightlife around Soi Bangla starts in the Phuket town. It is an epicenter of vibrant nightlife where the cafe’s, bars, and nightclubs organize parties from nightfall to the following morning.
Shopaholics can visit Jungceylon, the shopping complex, to buy the latest trend clothes and authentic Thai Souvenirs. You can also watch Muay Thai Fight in the Bangla Stadium; however, this violent bout is not for faint-hearted.
