Patong Beach This is Phuket's
central tourist and night time entertainment district.
Over the year, Patong has turned from a fishing
village into one of the island's two cities. The
famous bay and 4 km. beach remain as they were,
with development limited to the area back of the
beach road. There, however, virtually every kind
of entertainment imaginable awaits visitors, with
bars catering to every nationality. Live music can
be found in many places, and there are also discotheques.Accommodations
range from budget to five-star. Shopping opportunities
appear to be endless. Whatever one's culinary disposition,
a restaurant catering to it will be found. In addition,
there are many tour companies waiting to help visitors
plan their vacations.
