Patong is the most popular beach on Phuket, attracting thousands of local and international visitors looking to indulge in beautiful vistas, chill vibes and an active nightlife. This 2.5 km strip of beauty is bustling with hundreds of restaurants, bars, shopping, nightclubs and amazing local eats. There’s no end to the opportunities that Patong beach offers. But visitors don’t only come for the vibrant nightlife. The soft-sanded cove itself is absolutely beautiful. If you look closely, natural treasures and less trodden spots are not far from your fingertips.
Your magical beach vacation is not far away. Fly into the Phuket international airport. Because it’s only the second busiest airport in Thailand, there are fewer direct flights available. Most flights connect through Bangkok, Hong Kong or cities in mainland China. Once you arrive in Phuket, you’ll have to take a minibus or a taxi as buses do not go as far as the beach. It’s around a 50-minute drive there.
