Patong Mini Guide

What can you Tell me About Patong?
Patong is definitely Asia’s party capital. Hundreds of bars, clubs and top quality restaurants line the seafront and stretch back into the town. Ladyboy clubs and more vie with each other for the tourist baht. The beach is crowded and a little grubby and is the haunt of masseuses during the day and illicit activity at night.

Patong Beach

How Easy is it to get to Patong?
Flights to Phuket are a good mix of domestic and international from all over Europe and Asia. There is only a single direct flight from the UK with Thomson and many UK flights travel into Bangkok Airport before continuing on an internal flight to Phuket. The airport is 22 miles north of the resort and many travel there by taxi or airport transfer. Car hire from Phuket airport is a good idea saving you being ‘retail hijacked’ on the way.

Patong Nightlife

What is There to do in Patong?
Most people simply sleep during the day and party all night and it often seems like there are more people around at night. During the day you can laze on the golden sands of the beach but you’ll be sharing it with thousands of others. If you’ve got a hire car you can discover the quieter and more attractive beaches of the coast, north and south of the resort. Shopping is another popular activity with hand-made clothes popular.  Offshore, there are several dive sites but you’ll need to go further out these days with the environmental damage being wreaked on the nearer reefs by mass tourism.
