Reviewed November 27, 2013

Anyone could find something to do here since there's such a mix of activities and attractions to satisfy any tastes. Value for money accommodation and cheap eating add to the beautiful scenery and friendly locals make you feel more than welcome. Can't wait to return next year.

“Just another beach!”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

In our visit to Thailand we decided to go and see Patong beach, but to be honest it is just another beach, it has nothing special.... I don't know if I'm comparing it to Playa del Carmen and Cancun, but the truth is that it has nothing special to it.

The people on the beach charge you an arm and a leg for you to do para-sailing or jet-ski and the scenery is really not that beautiful.

If you like to party, there's a street that is full of bars and prostitutes.... both my husband and I don't like to party so this was not a plus at all, specially with all the prostitution that goes on around there.

To be honest don't waste your time going to this beach, it has nothing special to it, go to MAYA BAY, that is beautiful and its in Thailand.

“Untidy”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

The beach is beautiful if it were not for all the sellers and their untidy stalls that were set up all along the beachfront. This took away the beauty of the white sandy beach.

“The Charm has Gone :(”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

the last time i had gone to Patong, it was 5 years ago and I kept dreaming of coming back here, but how sadly has it deteriorated. The party atmosphere is totally gone as all they try to do is rip money out of you. Too many ladyboys who try to grab your nuts and the sex tourism there has become damn down dirty and the focal point of the area. The beach has also become so dirty and the crowd has become mainly of old, fat perverts. Go to Kata- Karon beach if you want entertainment in a nice, fun way.

“Nice to Reflect and Comtemplate”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

The sand was not that white and fine. But it's definitely a great place to get a tan or chill at night. When we went there last October the waves were a bit rough so not recommended for kids below 5 years old. It's an awesome place to do parasailing, jet-skiing, and you must know how to swim to enjoy the water. Take a stroll along the beach during sunset and enjoy the sea air. Just ignore the trash left by visitors and enjoy the moments.
