Patong Beach, Phuket
The beach is generally nice. The beach chairs are well maintained and cost THB 100 per chair to sit on. This includes the umbrella that can be opened if requested.
Loads of activity along this beach. If you need people constantly surrounding you then this beach is the place to be. Don't miss out on the coconut drink at only 40BHT.
There are a few advertisement vehicles like the one in the picture moving around Patong streets, both day and night time. Very interesting!
These pictures were taken in the morning of my last day in Patong. I still have lots of places in Patong that I have not been to yet.
You will get to meet several "friends" along Patong beachfront. :-) They are the seahorse, the turtle, the dolphins and the dog. I'm sure they'd love to say "hi".
Patong is a great place for activities and sports, there are a lot of people jogging, walking, playing beach volleyball, playing soccer/football, picnicking etc... Always an active place!
There are so many different types of massages available at a reasonable price. So make sure to pamper yourself in one of the massages, be it by the beach, in the hotel or in the shop.
On such a nice, long and busy Patong Beach, lots of activities can be done... Massage, water sports, jogging, beach soccer and volley ball, or even a relaxing stroll on the beach.
Not only for swimming and sunbathing. A lovely stroll in the late afternoon is sometimes just what the doctor ordered.
When i was there at patong, some places are still under construction, New building, as well as new trees at the beach area expacially.
If you are here to see Thai boxing, then you can visit Patong Boxing Stadium to watch a Thai boxing match. Tickets can either be purchased at the stadium itself or through travel agency.
Most of the Phuket's visitors will go to Patong it's colorful night spots no matter which beach hotels they are staying.
A nice big beach with plenty of beds and umbrellas. Downside: a lot of tacky people trying to sell you boat rides, hanggliding, etc.
The activities can be done here are swimming, sun bathing, thai massage,banana boat, water skiing and parachuting. It's a crawded beach.
Walking along Patong beach you have on the opposite side all the hawkers, shops and last but not least the pub's catering for the UK visitors. I loved this one for the Irish
