Phuket is one of the best beach destinations of Asia, if not the world… it is famous for its white sand beaches and awesome nightlife…
Patong Beach is the most famous beach and is popular with the party travelers… Patong beach’s famous Bangla Road is full of Bars, Pubs, nightclubs, restaurants, fast food joints and…ofcourse, Ping Pong clubs!! It also offers plenty of opportunities for shopping…but as for rest of Thailand, BARGAIN HARD! I stayed at the Sun Beach Hotel which is a budget hotel located right on the beach.. Recommended! Book before the price gets out of hand!
Relatively quieter as compared to Patong, it is popular with the travelers who prefer to have a quiet, lazy day on the beach… it is definitely more classier with its choice of restaurants and pubs… I stayed at the Kata Beach Center hotel and I must say, it was one of the best hotels I have stayed in…. The location is a bit far from the beach, but the owners are extremely friendly and take care of your needs like you were their house guests… also, the complex in which the hotel is located is superb….
What to do
1. Bangla Road…. Great Fun!
2. Laze around at the beach
3. Go on an Island trip… James Bond Island, canoeing etc… lots of tour operators offer packages
4. Enjoy Muay Thai !
5. Watch a Ping Pong Show….enjoyable as hell !
