    Good for some
    Have done the nightlife side in Patong and the reputation is what it is and holiday makers have made it. Its a good long beach and tree lined and we decided to walk round in freedom breakfast time of the day to view all in daytime. Hawkers and massage girls were there but not really in your face if you were polite and smiled.Shops were same same with gear. The place is certainly different during the day .. certainly not beautiful but for many a party town.

    Beach at Patong
    Nice location for a few days. Our hotel was in great location to the beach for a good 6km loop safely. A lot of Pot around though, so air quality smells like camel poo. Beach clean and plenty places to sit and not be hassled too much

    Crowded and Touristy
    This is one of the main tourist attractions in Phuket. The beachfront itself is busy and lots of water sport activities on offer. There are plenty of restaurants, shops and activity along the streets by the beach. It's very much a party town with nightlife. Signs indicating tsunami hazard zone provide a reminder that this was one of the most affected areas of the tsunami in 2004.

    a beach with diversity
    I have been to there a few months ago and living close to Patong Beach. Not the most beautiful beach in Phuket but there are a lot of shops and restaurant, hotels, bars, walking street around this beach. And that was lively at night. Recommended!

    Fun in the sun
    Thousands thronged Patong beach when I was there. Activities include swimming, jet skiing, paragliding, boating, sun-bathing and just watching. Tourists of diverse nationalities having fun in the sun. Many hotels and restaurants along the beach road make it convenient. Beach is clean and safe.

    Patong changed a lot, do not go any more!!
    Patong is no more nice as it was before Covid. It is allmost like Pattaya now. Just party and drinking everywhere. And worst is that you have tousends of Indian's, Arab's and Russian Tourists. And specialy the Arabs and Russian are loud, unfreindly and sometimes very rude! Specialy to the thai working people. And then since WEED is legal u have also a lot of nasty cheap weed smokers! Also near Bagla Rd. Everything overpriced and no more good (Streetfood in Bangla). If u go Phuket choose an other beach location or go to Hua Hin.

    Patong beach
    Arrived at the beach preferring to use deck chairs. The deck chairs where under trees meaning no sun. Laid down on the sand. Noticed two cruisers in the bay. Lots of Russian people where on the beach. The beach vendors where back and forth with various items for sale.

    Avoid the street stalls to preserve your sanity
    Absolutely captivated by Patong! The scenery is breathtaking, the food sumptuous, and the people incredibly hospitable. However, I can't give it a perfect 5 due to unpleasant encounters with some shopkeepers, particularly those run by Nepalese individuals. In my experience, they've been cunning negotiators and quite grumpy and arrogant. To preserve your zen moment in Patong, it might be advisable to steer clear of their stalls.

    Not for me
    It is unfortunate the brochures do not depict the incredible amount of traffic. Add time to get from point A to B. The sea of umbrella and humans really destroys the beach. Walking around patong especially at night very congested and not pleasant For me certainly not my favourite place in the world

One of the bustling beaches of thailand. Many tourists have a great time here. Many beach activities, such as, jet-ski riding, bout trips, and parachuting.

Not the best on the island, still central and vibrant, it deserves a visit. Water is clean, as almost everywhere on the island. Of course often crowded, still beautifulness and closeness makes the visit a good idea.

One of the cleanest and most beautiful beaches in the entire world. Happening place and close to main market. One can walk go by walking from the main bangla road. Super excellent place to visit.

I recently visited Patong Beach during my trip to Thailand, and it exceeded all my expectations! The beach itself is beautiful, with soft white sand and clear turquoise waters perfect for swimming and sunbathing. Whether you’re looking to relax or indulge in some water sports, Patong Beach has it all.

One of the highlights of Patong is the vibrant nightlife. Bangla Road comes alive after dark with a myriad of bars, clubs, and restaurants. It’s the perfect place for those who love to party and enjoy live music. The street food vendors offer a wide variety of delicious Thai delicacies, which are a must-try.

During the day, there are plenty of activities to keep you entertained. From parasailing and jet skiing to beach volleyball and massages on the beach, you’ll never be bored. There are also numerous shops and markets where you can find great deals on souvenirs and clothing.

The local people are incredibly friendly and welcoming, making the experience even more enjoyable. While it can get quite crowded, especially in peak season, the energy and atmosphere of Patong Beach are infectious.

Too crowded. Bangla road is not worth visting. Only restaurants and drugs. Not found a halal restaurant. Not halal and child friendly
