The back of the beach is full of hotels, restaurants and bars, where you can enjoy delicious fried noodles and stewed chicken. There is also a "Dinosaur Park" on the south side of the beach, consisting of caves, gardens and dinosaur statues.

Patong Beach: Crazy Night Life

Patong Beach is 15 kilometers away from Phuket Town. It is the best developed beach area in Phuket. In the daytime, there are many people on the beach, swimming, playing motorboats and water parachutes. At night, bars and nightlife continue all night.

The most attractive moment on the beach is at night. At dusk, the Bang La Road behind the beach will be closed and turn into a pedestrian street. There are bars on both sides. The bar girls and the shemales stand along the street, wave to the tourists who are looking around and invite them to see the show.

This is a good place for eating, and many of the most famous restaurants on the strategies are gathered here, such as the cost-effective Patong No.6 and the tiger restaurant with imposing decorations.

Rawai Beach: Seafood Feast

If you want to eat seafood, please go to "Rawai Beach", which is at the southernmost end of Phuket, near Phuket fishing port, where the seafood is cheap and fresh, and the price is about half of "Patong Beach". However, because the beach is rougher and has more coral rocks, it is not suitable for swimming so there are fewer visitors.

There are quite a few hotels and resorts in the beach area. The environment is relatively quiet. There are also convenience stores and restaurants in the surrounding area. It is just not easy to go to other scenic spots due to the inconvenient transportation. It needs to take tuk-tuks, but it is convenient to go to Coral Island. There are speedboats and long tail boats by the sea for you to rent.

There are relatively few visitors at this sea, most of them are foreigners staying here, the beach is not long but the slope is gentle, so it is very suitable for swimming and paddling, and you can also see people doing sailing activities such as sailing here.
