About Patong

Phuket’s largest beach resort, Patong is known for its nightlife, shopping, beach and party atmosphere. It caters to singles, couples and families, attracting mostly European tourists, though Thais also flock to this lively part of the island for its high-end shopping, luxury resorts and world class restaurants.

Don’t Miss

It is really worthwhile to get out of Patong and explore the rest of Phuket, which is home to some unspoilt beaches, mangrove forests, temples and tourist attractions. Still, there is much to see and do in the resort town itself.

Water sports lovers will not be bored here, with scuba diving, snorkelling and jet skiing being available. It is also possible to rent a sail boat or Hobie cat, or to head out of Patong to a marina to enjoy a luxury cruise.

If you love nature and the outdoors you can kayak along Mudong Canal, go hiking in Khao Phra Thaeo National Park and do morning Tai Chi in Suan Luang Park. Fitness gurus will enjoy training at Bangla Boxing Stadium or Patong Boxing Stadium and hiking to the viewpoint atop Khao Rang Hill. Other great things to do in Patong include spending an evening at the famous Simon Cabaret Show, going to the Vegas-style Phuket FantaSea Show and visiting the Phuket Zoo.

Restaurants and Bars

There is such an amazing selection of restaurants and bars in Phuket that you will likely find yourself having trouble making a choice. Cuisine ranges from typical Thai food fare to international cuisine from all over the world, with meals being a bit expensive. For cheaper eats, head to the food court in Jungceylon or the weekend market in Phuket Town. Be sure to try local specialties like khanom jin and nam phrik kung siap. Those who like to stay up very late will find an endless number of bars, especially along Bangla Road and the Paradise Complex.


Every evening Patong’s main strip turns into a bazaar lined with stalls selling everything from sarongs to leather goods, where bargaining is necessary. For a more comfortable shopping experience, head to the air-conditioned Jungceylon shopping mall, which is home to around 200 shops.
