Patong Beach Phuket Reviews
The sea, the sand, and the sun. Jul 27, 2015
The Patong Beach is considered as Phuket's main tourist resort and luckily, it was just a 2-minute walk from my hotel.
If you're looking for fun and party, Patong is the perfect place. Bars and restaurants are all over the place. I have noticed international cafes too. Most business owners are foreigners. There are couple of imitation shops there where you can buy cheap items and souvenirs.
The Patong Beach is just across the street. It is long enough for a morning run/walk. The beach is clean and very relaxing. I fell in love with its fine, white sand. The water is warm. As early as 10 in the morning, tourists start sun bathing while others are into extreme activities like riding the jet ski, banana boating and parasailing. Most foreigners there were Americans and Europeans.
Food and drink vendors are all over the place too. There is a place there where you can have a Thai massage for a reasonable price.
"I don't want Tuk Tuk, massage, DVD. Thank you very much". You can hear this statement from foreigners almost everyday in Phuket. Tip: If you don't want to sound bitchy and snob, buy a shirt that has this statement then just show it to the locals offering such services. Then, smile while leaving the place.
I will never forget the beautiful sunset there. Patong Beach is indeed beautiful... one of the must-visits in Phuket.
