Mini Guide for Phuket 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.
Flights to Phuket are a good mix of domestic and international from all over Europe and Asia. 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.
