Despite the area’s famed nightlife and lively atmosphere, it isn’t difficult to depart from this environment during your holidays to Patong Beach and embrace a little more authenticity and serenity - whether you’ve come for rejuvenation or to let your hair down, you’ll be well-served by the offerings of Patong Beach.
Diving, spa treatments, fine dining, local cuisine chomping, Thai boxing and bustling shopping malls can all encompass a single day in the resort of Patong, such is the variety on offer. Much of your focus during the day will understandably be placed on the wide, white-sand strip that defines the resort and the action and adventure that takes place around it. From the ease of snoozing on the soft sand to the diving and snorkelling adventures on offer to more intrepid beach bums, opportunities suit every manner of holidaymaker along the beach.
The nightlife is pulsating, characterising the evenings and early hours of your holidays in Patong Beach, especially along colourful and chaotic Bangla Road. For more peace and quiet, heading away from the resort is simple, and quieter beaches such as Kamala Beach and Kalim Beach will provide a sense of isolation unfounded in Patong, while the nearby Wat Suwan Khiri Wong temple will provide a window into authentic Thailand.
