Welcome to Patong Beach – Bangla Road – Phuket.
If Phuket was the United States then Patong would be Las Vegas, with a beach. During the day it offers all the beach related activities that you can dream of. Everything you want from food and drink to jet skis and massage are available right next to the sea. The bay is three kilometres long so it can accommodate the considerable number of pleasure seekers who flock there in the high season.
It is when the sun goes down and the beach slowly empties that Patong explodes into a vibrant celebration of the good life. It’s called Soi Bangla. This short boulevard is the heart of the action. Within its environs is a concentration of hotels, accommodation of mixed quality, bars, restaurants, massage parlours and discos. From around nine pm, thousands of people will descend on the place hell-bent on having a great night out. Music blares, lights flash, fresh seafood displays abound and the hostesses preen and pose. It’s mesmeric, addictive and seductive all in one. Above all it is irresistible. Just surrender yourself to the endless sweep of humanity and absorb the glitzy, glittering razzmatazz which makes Patong the end of the rainbow. Whatever you seek, you will find it here.
