Patong Beach Phuket was once a small fishing village with traditional Thai huts and houses, but is now a developed city filled with vibrant nightlife, cabaret shows, and dazzling clubs and pubs. The beach is overcrowded full of tourist and the Bangla Road is noisy. By night, the town has bustling nightlife ideal for party lovers.
A stroll around the area during the day is great and we had a fabulous time admiring the beach and the hills scenery. We also tried some of the beachfront restaurant and purchased a toy for my daughter from one of the street vendor . Its a vibrant and busy town and notorious for its nightlife, however the beach is wonderful.
