Visited Patong Beach on a recent trip to Phuket. The nightlife left me in a state of amazement, confusion, and shock. They offer a ton of shops here selling any and everything. The crowds are large the restaurants and bars are crowded but that didn't bother me. There is entertainment on every corner. Good drinks and food. On the flip... More

We didn't really like Patong Beach. There are much nicer, less crowded, cleaner beaches to visit. Having said that was good to see. Water looked dirty compared to others. Very crowded. Lots of beach sellers. Can get massages on the beach - a great idea. Karon or Kata beaches much nicer.

Very busy place at night. Lots of staffs harassing you to drink at their bars or to watch live sex shows. Young girls and lady boys dancing on bars with skimpy shorts to mainly get men to buy over priced drinks. I was not interested in watching other women dancing on the bars. Really sad that this type of sexualised... More

The McDonald pineapple pie in Phuket town costs 28 Baht but costs 55 Baht in Patong, that is more than what they charge in the US or perhaps in Europe, everything is NOT affordable IMO. Fixed price of 200 baht tuk tuk ride even for 1KM of distance. They bully or harass you if you try to bargain. Any meal... More

Patong used to be great, but the never-ending inflow of tourists it's taking its toll and man I can tell you these people are SATURATED of them. When Alex Garland wrote 'The Beach' and complained about Tourists eating Thailand from the inside he would not believe what Patong would become in 2017. But anyway, regarding the title, first things first,... More

Best place to be with friends especially for its starry nights. Lots of clubs, food joints, street food, shopping stalls, and lots of fun! This place is the liveliest after 6pm and a must-go if you are with your friends or go as a couple. There is nothing that cannot amaze you here! Totally my favorite!

Noisy with the crowd and jet ski's and boats that tow the parasailers. they land immediately over your head but the crews seem to have worked it out with no injuries. the food, massage, trinket stores across the road from the beach are ample and plenty with very good prices. Most way better priced than restuarants at jungceylon mall and... More

I didn't lay out or get into the water but just looked around. Seemed like an average beach as I was underwhelmed
