Patong Beach Phuket Thailand:
For many Patong Beach is one the most amazing beach of all the more than 30 beaches to choose from on the island of Phuket. But this is only one half of Patong fame. Shop until you drop, multicultural dining opportunities for all budgets, a cinema, the usual massage parlors and the “Go Banana” nightlife are all in their own way contributing to the other half of Patong success over the years.
The expression “Go Banana” bears a historical agricultural reference in the sense that the Thai words “Hat Pa Tong” can be translated into “the beach on the banana trees forest”. So the next time you show off your dance moves in the Banana discotheque on the Beach road near Bangla road, you might feel tempted to close your eyes and envision yourself on a beach with banana trees all the way down the horizon. Speaking of discotheques … the club scene in Patong is a very vibrant one: Banana, Illuzion, Tai Pan, only to name but a few! From house to hip hop all night long, to rock oldies and heavy metal in the live venues, you can listen to a wide spectrum of musical taste.
Speaking of taste: from Japanese, Russian, Arabic, Italian, Argentine and much more flavors, you’ll find your taste buds served well with the cornucopia of cuisine choices offered by the restaurants along Patong Beach road and the so-called well diversified second road; while the budget oriented might still find a great choice of food on the third road and Nanai Road. From the little Italian street cafe and a few Italian restaurants, the noodle soup stands to the very good Thai and international food across the Makro supermarket, the whole sales stop for hotel owners and restaurants and all you can eat bar/restaurants as well as one Coffee mania coffee shop on Nanai Road, Patong Beach has it all.
