Patong is the undisputed nightlife centre of Phuket. From nine o’clock onwards nightly the town is buzzing and doesn’t stop until the wee hours (and longer depending where you look).
Bangla Road in Patong is the epicentre of the action and where you will find the biggest clubs, the craziest ‘bar beers’ and the fruitiest shows. However other areas such as Rat-U-Thit Road and Beach Road have lively night venues with good bands.
Stroll along Bangla Road at round midnight and you’ll wonder if you’re an extra in a phantasmagorical movie or not. Anything goes along Bangla and that includes boys that love girls who love girls who are boys, ping pong shows without a table-tennis paddle, clubs with pounding beats. Taken with a sense of humour it’s a barrel of laughs.
