Patong is the epicentre of fun on Phuket, an island off the coast of Thailand. Thanks to the town's wide open beaches, inviting resorts, tempting restaurants and exciting nightlife, you'll enter full holiday mode on your trip to Patong.
Patong delivers the best of Phuket right to your doorstep. Hit the beach to jet ski, paraglide and swim in the warm waters, or simply relax on a daybed with your favourite book and a Thai massage. Don’t get too comfortable, though, as there is much to discover further afield. Delve into the island's dense jungle, glide through hidden sea caves in a canoe and explore secret bays (shh, don’t tell). You'll course want to experience Patong's beaches. Patong, Karon, and Kata Beaches are among the most popular. As Thailand's best holiday hot spot, this island paradise has something for everyone, and its accessible layout makes it easy to discover on your own with one of Wotif’s Patong car hire options.
Phuket is filled with world-class shopping centres, and we think the best are in Patong. On a hot, balmy day, escape the heat and leave the beach to hide out in the air conditioning. Nearly every major clothing brand has a store in Patong, many of which you won't find back home. Stick around after the sun goes down if you still want more. Once the stars come out, Patong Beach Road, the main drag along the beachfront, becomes a giant outdoor market with decorative local arts and crafts and beachwear competing for your attention and your pocket cash.
Dining in Patong is like tasting the world in a city, so it’s a good thing you have your passport handy. Sure, there’s Thai food, along with adaptations of your Western favourites from some of the world's best chefs. But let’s be blunt, seafood is the main game in town, and we aren’t just talking about fish—prawns, lobster and more come piled high in all manner of delicious variations. Many restaurants have their best catches grilling out front, filling the street with delicious smells and breaking down your defences by teasing your senses. Like a toucan once said, “Follow your nose…”
You’ll put your name down for a holiday in Patong as soon as you hear about Phuket's exciting nightlife. Bangla Road has most of the action, and anything goes, seriously. Check out street-front bars where happy hour is more like “ecstatic hour,” or nurse a cocktail in the many restaurants and bars by the beach. The party revs up as the sun goes down, with multi-level nightclubs jetting in big-name DJs to pump the tunes 'til dawn. Pro tip: If you’re in town during a full moon and you fancy body paint and dancing, head to the beach. You’re welcome.
