Get loud with rowdy crowds in lively Patong

If you're checking out Patong vacation rentals, chances are you're hoping for a hopping party scene, because this is the place. This sheltered beach resort in the middle of Phuket's western coast has every type of bar and club, where you can party all night and sleep it off on your choice of spectacular beaches. This is a popular and well developed area of Phuket, so bring your walking thongs and get ready to eat, shop, explore and dance. In Patong, you're also close to many of Phuket's premiere attractions, including temples, theme parks and markets.

Things to do

Patong will surely give you jungle fever

Slightly northeast of Patong, you can hit the jungle to do some ziplining at Flying Hanuman. Then head to the Elephant Jungle Sanctuary right in Patong to admire the magnificent, gentle animals. Learn about Thailand via your stomach at Phuket FantaSea, a cultural theme park with lavish buffets, although you'll also have plenty of eating options near all of Patong vacation rentals. You can take a ferry to the world-famous Phi Phi Islands, or stay on Phuket to tour the impressive Buddhist temples, such as Wat Suwan Khirikhet and the lavish Chaithararam Temple.


Party all night and sleep it off on a blissful beach

Patong Beach is a gorgeous crescent-shaped paradise of white sand leading into aquamarine water, and north and south of there are several other sublime and sandy hot spots like Freedom Beach and Kalim Beach. Now if you want to check out that crazy nightlife, Bangla Street is where you can find all the fun, from beer bars to discos to massage parlours to cabarets, all beckoning you with neon lights, street promoters and bumpin' music. And of course, there are some excellent shopping and eating opps, from Jungceylon Shopping Centre to indoor/outdoor food stalls at the Banzaan Fresh Market.


Whether it's raining or not it's always mega hot

There are 2 seasons in the tropical paradise that is Patong, and they are wet monsoon and dry monsoon. Both seasons always have a backdrop of constant tropical heat that hovers in the 30s, with the Andaman Sea nearly hitting the same temperatures. If you're booking Patong vacation rentals between May and November, bring an umbrella, and be aware that the sea can sometimes get a little rough at this time. High season starts in December, when the dry monsoon descends upon Phuket with bright, sunny glory.

Natural highlights

Patong's got it goin' on in the marine life department, baby

Patong is in a perfect sheltered bay on Phuket's western shore, which many agree is the coastest with the mostest. The Andaman Sea houses vibrant marine life and coral reefs that snorkellers and scuba divers will adore exploring. Just remember, it's always smart to watch for jellyfish and stingrays in the water, especially during wet monsoon, when the winds bring new creatures to the area. Above sea level, there are rugged hills and rainforests, so take an eco-tour to admire all the wildlife here, like lizards, frogs and tropical birds.
