  • Patong is the area with full of night life but Patong beach in not something special. There are much much better beaches to go around Phuket  more »
  • It's over crowded, loud, feels tacky. This beach and surrounding area is way below par. I could not leave soon enough and won't ever return.  more »
  • If you have chosen to stay in Kata Beach or in Karon Beach and in the evening you want to party, you go to Patong Beach. For travel in General, use GRAB (a kind of Uber) but much cheaper. Not treated with taxi drivers who will try to cheat anyway. Download the app and you'll save time and money. The prices of housing, restaurants, unlike those in Patong, are slightly higher than Kata/Karon. The sea is not that great and is very busy.

  • I'm going to write about the beach Overall it is fairly clean and the water is clear The beach is quite in the morning and slowly gets busier after lunch. The beach can be very crowded so try and go early in the day to get a good spot if you want to lay in the sun or shade. When the beach is full of people, the street vendors will start trying to sell basically everything and anything to you from sunblock, umbrellas, drinks, clothes to water sport activities, Therefore it can be so stressful in order to relax properly!
  • This is the queen beach of Phuket. The beach is beautiful and clean. Authorities doesn't allow smoking on the beach although they have designated places for it. This is also the most commercially viable place and you will find high end hotels and restaurants here. The famous and notories Bangla Street is also there.
  • Phuket is the largest island of Thailand. Is a nice place. Patong beach, Karon beach, kata beach are nice places to relax. Must visit to Buddha Temples they have spectacular architecture.
  • Could keep the beach cleaner. Water rides are amazing. Very helpful and friendly water sports agents.
  • It is a nice beach to check out, although lots of reviewers will say its busy. It is pretty clean, water looks good, but there are waves. The hawkers on that beach are alright (not as aggressive as other places I've been to). Its fun to walk, and its clean. Must visit!
