Patong (Patong) , translated from Thai means "Banana forest". It is located on the West coast of the island 22 km from the airport and 10 kilometers from the island's capital Phuket town (Patong on the island map). The length of the area and the beach – 4 kilometers.

Patong beach (Patong Beach) is the most popular, the largest and most developed beach and tourist area of Phuket. It is so developed and noisy that it can be safely put on the second place in maturity and popularity in the country after the entertainment center of Thailand – Pattaya. Yes, as in Pattaya, there are plenty of adult entertainment: Go-Go bars, show, show of transvestites, gay bars, strip clubs, brothels and everything else that you want like the story of two sex-tourist. All night and night life centred along the main party street Bangla Road. Closer you stay, the more fun it will be. Like Walking Street in Pattaya, on the street, even just enough to walk and to stare, and it already is for many fun and entertainment. There is always something going on: what are the street performers, the show touts from the nearby bars and night clubs, then suddenly there is a procession of men in skirts, etc. But in other parts of Patong beach is also quite fun, just more modest scale.

Patong beach has everything that you want tourist infrastructure is developed at 100%. At every step there are shops, banks, exchange offices, travel agencies, rent a motorbike and cars. Here is the immigration Bureau of Phuket. Objectively we can say that although the capital of the island and is considered the city of Phuket town, and Patong is the most developed place of the island.

Day, apart from relaxing on the beach, you can go shopping in one of the many shopping centres, go on island tours, massage or Spa salons. Closer to the evening open their doors and begin to work evening markets and shops. The fun and debauchery begin to bubble up. With the power to Patong you will never have any problems. There are plenty of minimarkets 7/11 and Family Mart major supermarkets Big C, Tesco, with food courts, street food courts, and cafes for the locals, stalls, cafes and restaurants. Find something you can eat at every step.

As for the quality of the beaches, the situation here is ambiguous. You can often hear that Patong beach vacation should not go at all. But in fact the beach here is not so bad, and most are not too sophisticated and demanding tourists perfect. The entire length of the beach about 4 kilometers, and on the North it gradually becomes somewhat more quiet and clean Kalim beach. The beach has everything: beds, any water activities, food stalls. What is really bad, all along the beach there is a road (but it happened on most of Phuket's beaches), and almost no hotels on the first line, everywhere have to cross the road to get to the beach. In some places the road is so close to the water, lying on a sun lounger you'll ingest exhaust fumes and dust from passing vehicles, and this is really a big minus Patong.

and in it all essence of Patong

Hotels in Patong. Patong is the best place on the island for budget travelers, if not to take into account Phuket town where hotel prices even lower, but to do there the tourists have absolutely nothing. Here is concentrated the most inexpensive hotels and guesthouses of the island, prices start from 500 baht for air-conditioned room for two even in the heart of the district, near Bangla Road. Find cheap accommodation place on arrival will not be easy, and the search for better to start closer to the center of the district. Note that the prices are highly subject to seasonality, and high season from December to February and in April (during the Thai new year), they rise almost twice. And again, that there are no hotels on the first line, all of them are across the road from the beach.

Summing up, about Patong. This is the best place in Phuket for young people and backpackers looking for a party all night and hungry for sexual entertainment. Bangla Road is perhaps the most happening street in Thailand after the Walking Street Pattaya, and maybe even her anything and not inferior. While Patong is the most developed area with lots of shopping centers, massage parlors, travel agencies. The beach here is not the best, but for those who have no moral issue with "perfect bounty beach", perfect. Hotels on Patong the most affordable of all the resorts on the island, and there are plenty of them. In General, if in doubt about where to go in Phuket and the perfect beach for you in the first place, feel free to choose from the pool.

Phuket of course all the beaches are beautiful ) And, of course, on who is looking )
If you like to go to Nightclubs, bars and restaurants, and you arrived at the Phuket fun - definitely your choice should fall to Patong.
If you come with your family and for the Sea, and do not plan to take the car - then, of course, Karon or Kata. But they are also the most touristic.
If you want the opposite of quiet rest, and what would you no one bothered, then Patong or Mai Khao. On the beautiful beach of Panwa, AO Yon, on Mai Khao beach with bathing worse. Yes, the beach is sandy but very large depth and the waves can be, even in high season.
If you want everything at once, and that would be less tourists, and whatever the club was, and still restaurants not bad, the Surin or Bang Tao. But firstly it is expensive areas, and secondly, will already be hard without a car.
Well, everyone's favorite Nai Harn beach. Only by car or bike, the beach is beautiful, live mostly winterers and expats. The infrastructure is good, almost all Thais in Russian learned to speak. restaurants are generally not considered.
Nai Thon and Nai Yang is also perfect for a family holiday. Serene sandy beaches, very beautiful. Minus in poor infrastructure areas. Very limited choice of shops and restaurants. But if you lie on the sand arrived - you here :)
Well, the last one in the list, but only because it is not clear what to attribute - Kata Noi. Beautiful sandy beach in a very picturesque place. Of the minuses - no budget accommodation, expensive hotels, and to the same Kata, with its infrastructure, you still have to go :( But the beach luxurious, and not too busy with tourists. ...

Hi, I need advice. Want to come to Phuket for excursions to the Islands (Similan Islands, Krabi, Phi Phi, etc.), beaches like Patong, Kata etc. is not needed.

You really are all the same where to stop because anyway during the tour, the bus will collect tourists from all over the island and faster does not work. Only in the South does not recommend (Nai Harn), from there you will be picked up early and come home to you after all. Patonga Yes, from the point of view of logistics, not quite bad. ...
