Great beach, very clean. Sit down and have a drink at one of the kiosks and the shopping comes to you-lovely relaxed way to get your pressies for back home

“Not what its cracked up to be”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

I found Patong a little bland compared to Pattaya and expensive ,ripoffs galore and its cheaper to buy your own deckchair than to hire one ,not worth the extra airfare to visit ,but you can swim at the beach but watchout for those plastic bag jellyfish .
Pattaya is so much better and easier to get to

“Patong Beach!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

Not quite what the tropical paradise the postcards show! But fun in other ways - jet skiing and good food etc. Phuket has many other beautiful - and quieter - beaches.

“The heart of Phuket”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Great beach in the middle of all the action in Phuket! Maybe not ideal for couples or honeymooners, but for backpackers or friends this is the best location. Plenty of food options, bars, and shopping galore.

“Very busy place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Lots of choices on food and water sport. Vendors were very pesky so stay away unless you need to buy something. You can tailors to make clothing but do bargain or you will paying a lot
