Loch Palm Golf course
Located just 7 kms. from Phuket Town and Patong Beach, about 15 minutes from Patong.
Nestling below a panoramic range of peaks, and sandwiched between the Katu Waterfalls and Katu Village the layout surrounds the largest lake on any golf course in Phuket, Crystal Lake, 48 acres in size, and its smaller sister lake, which give golfers a refreshing breeze off the water.
The course is in great shape. It is a very good layout and one that is beginning to rival some of the best layouts on the island as the refurbishment matures. You are required to put your thinking cap on and keep perfect control of your game on this tightly routed layout. Bring more ball if you are beginner
It is common to find night markets in Asia's big cities or tourist hubs and Phuket has plenty too.
There are some in Patong and they generally sell similar things... local crafts, fake watches, fake branded goods, casual shirts/pants/bermudas etc., and all kinds of things including movie DVDs(not licensed of cos) You should generally look around a few stalls and check out the pricing... the bargain down to a price you think is reasonable before paying and try to walk off if the shopkeeper refused your price. If he/she calls you back, you get it at the price you want, if not, you will know that the price you quote is too low and you can probably try a higher price at another stall...
nightime is built for single males
Pattong is biggest place to be if you wanna have party on the island but unfortunatly it is hard to find a spot where you can chill and sip a Redbull Vodka without being surrounded by very friendly Thai girls. They did not disturbed us at all but it is not a pleasant situation to find ourselves among all that. Anyway, we were able to get drunk for less than nothing. Whatever you want, girls are waiting for men who got money.
The Tuc Tuc is a great means of transportation to get around the island. It is not very expensive and the driver will bring you everywhere, even a 30 minutes drive from our hotel to Patong.
Sometimes their driving skills can make you worry abour not arriving at your destination...
