Patong is Phuket’s party town and a whole lot more. With its idyllic location on the west coast of the island, it is an ever expanding beach town that continuously adds to its extensive range of bars, cafés, nightclubs, restaurants and shopping facilities. Patong has garnered a world-wide reputation for its vibrant nightlife and energetic atmosphere that can be found nowhere else on the isle. Phuket’s one and only Sin City, love it or hate it.
Patong is the main tourist area on the island and the centre of nightlife and shopping. Since the 1980’s it has become hugely popular by Western tourists, nowadays joined by their fellow Russian and Chinese travelers. The six kilometer long bay in the shape of a wineglass attracts thousands of visitors each year, but they are not just here for the beach. After dark, Patong transforms itself into one of the most vibrant nightlife spots on the planet.
