Hi we are a couple late 40s, was really looking forward to coming to Patong in February for 9 nights, but one of the guys at work has put me off a bit saying that it's very busy, stinks of sewerage and very expensive. Albeit he's a single guy and was frequenting the bars looking for fun, he was saying after 4 days he had had enough for the above reasons and it's same thing different day. I know people have different opinions but this has now got us having second thoughts as to wether Patong is really the place for us or should we try another resort. We do like tho to be somewhere were there's something happening rather than a quiet resort. Any advice or opinions would be grateful from Patong regulars or experts and even people who may have had similar concerns.
