“A Great Place for Homesick Builders”
Reviewed April 23, 2010

Guests staying at Patong Harbor View Condominiums can for an indefinite period enjoy the soothing sounds of authentic Thai construction workers plying their trade. Between 9am and 5pm Monday to Saturday you can hear the sweet popping of a pneumatic nail-gun, the high-pitched chirping of an electric tile-cutter, the melodic thumping of multiple sledgehammers, and the unique sound of a hammer drill as it bores its way through reinforced concrete.

Patong Harbor View encourages all its guests to enjoy the searing midday sun of Phuket and ensures that no head remains on a pillow later than 9:01am. Having intended to finish construction works before renting the apartments, tourists can now take advantage of the prolonged construction season to listen to what has been described by one satisfied guest as:

"An orchestra of power tools combined with old-fashioned primitive implements which together creates a majestical cacophony which will disturb even the deepest alcohol induced sleep guaranteeing you will not miss out on even a minute of the worst hangover of your life."

Patong Harbor View takes pride in that all construction noise is generated byy authentic Thais, and not by illegal Burmese workers. When you are unable to sleep due to the soft buzz of an angle-grinder cutting through steel, you can be sure that it is the genuine sound of Thailand's beating heart!

We are renting a lovely 3 bedroom apartment and the pool is wonderful, but the television channels are awful!
No decent English channels, no news channels like Sky and CNN.
There is Russia Today, which repeats itself every so often.
Bloomberg=Boring.
Several religious channels from America and Africa, no idea why anybody would subscribe to GodAfrica in Thailand.
Kurdish TV? Why??
2 Aljazeera channels.
No wonder civilized Europeans are avoiding Phuket.. If you are not into going to the bars every night, you can't watch anything decent on television here at Patong Harbor View.
