Did not know what to expect. Walked down this street in the day time and was hassled by time share and tourist trip operators. Plus tailors. Oh the tailors. At night this road transforms into one hell of an attractions. Went there twice just to enjoy a cold beer and watch the world go by. Bars down every alley and on the main street. From lady boys, tourists, drinkers, tourist police and friendly hostesses the place buzzes with atmosphere. I felt safe and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. A must see for any trip to Phuket and Patong.

This road is insane, tons of bars, girlie bars, pubs, clubs, etc. One big party street that is all party and all tourist. With the exception of one decent pub with live band and a little alley with some good thai food, this place is a walk once through to see what it's all about, then stay away. Unless of course this is what you came for:)
