AFL Grand Final - where to watch with the kids?

Hi all!

We are going to be staying in Patong when the AFL Grand Final is on the 28th September.

Wondering where would be a good place to go and watch it and take the kids (kids will be aged between 8-14). Have heard the Legends Bar near Gracelands is good.....

Also, due to the time difference between Phuket and Australia, just wondering what time it is shown on the TV in Phuket?

(we will be travelling back from Krabi that morning and want to make sure we get back in time!!)

Thanks :)

Don't worry you'll find a cosy spot & any place with a TV will have it on. It will be live so remember your behind Vic time so the balls bounced around midday Phuket time.

3 hour time difference...so kick off around 11am? Patong Aussie Bar will be a bit raucus for kids. Legends would do.

If you go to Karon Kennys Aussie Bar will have it on and its a great atmosphere there. We watched state of origin 1 there and I would have no concerns taking children there.

We have been in Phuket for last two years when NRL state of origin has been played. We have two young teenage boys and have each time found a child friendly bar along Bangla road to watch the game with other families. I am sure this will be the case for the Ahl final.
