****Patong - quiet by day...R-A-V-E by night**** Jul 28, 2011
...arriving to Patong during the daytime was definitely a great way to start my vacation is this area of Phuket...
It was the only way I think I was able to recall places and not get lost the following day...because had I arrived at night I would have woken up clueless.
Patong by day is beautiful and beachy, reaaaal island vacay spot...but by night when strips like the infamous "Bangla Road" transforms from stalls to "strip/shot" bars...it can get a lil' crazy all the way to raunchy.
The real awesome thing about Patong is that all the restaurants, bars and clubs are all within walking distance of major hotels and hostels...and for the most part they don't have cover charges (which is great for club hopping) from the hookah to the ice bars...
I personally recommend to start drinking at places like "Pirates" and then partying it out in the multi-level "Hollywood Club"...
