Phuket is a very large island in the Andaman Sea. The surrounding islands are ideal for day trips for snorkelling and diving. You can also visit three waterfalls and go swimming on the beautiful beaches.
The Phuket nightlife in Patong
Many tourists visit the vibrant and lively city of Patong every year. There is the legendary Bangla Road which is comparable to Walking Street in Pattaya. Bangla Road is located in the middle of Patong and is easily accessible via Patong Beach. The approximately 1km long street is full of bars, clubs, strip clubs and discos and restaurants.

There are several ways to travel to Phuket. The island is connected to the mainland by a bridge to the north. So you can travel by bus or by car from Bangkok to Phuket. The island has its own international airport (HKT), where taxis are waiting for you to continue. Another option for getting there, would be with a cruise ship or from the area by boat.
Find Cheap Phuket Hotels – Hotel Recommendation
If you want to go to Phuket Town for a nice family vacation, I have the following hotel recommendation for you. In the middle of the city, you can take a bus to Patong and other parts of the island.
- HotelsDirectly at the bus station in Phuket Town is a nice hotel for the family. I have been recommended by friends from my Phuket holiday trip, who booked there. The Lub Sbuy House is a good and cheap hotel.
- Another very nice but a little bit more expensive accommodation near the bus station in Phuket Town is the Royal Phuket City Hotel. There you have a magnificent pool on the roof of the parking garage of the hotel.
- A very cheap accommodation with free WiFi would be the Ekkamon accommodation. The hotel is located in a quiet side street also only 2 minutes from the bus station. Note: For this hotel you should take a lap for your door, because for 500Baht the night per room you should see in it only a place to stay.
Hotels in Patong city
- Patong City is a bit more expensive resort, especially in high season. a very nice hotel near the beach is the Deevana Patong Resort & Spa. Patong Beach is a leisurely 10-minute walk.
- Times a different hotel, right on Patong Beach and with very nice bathroom is the 8080 Hotel Patong. Hotel tip and recommendation: This hotel is very reasonably priced.
