When it comes to what happens once the sun has gone down for the day, Patong is certainly not a place for the faint hearted. The Patong nightlife is so renowned that for many people, it is the main reason that they choose to visit Phuket. As you walk down Soi Bangla at night you will be surrounded by a cacophony of music being played from a multitude of nearby bars. Neon lights highlight bars that are open all night with girls ready and waiting to welcome you. With so many bars to choose from selling any alcoholic drink you can think off, the party will carry on throughout the night.
If you would like to enjoy a drink at a more leisurely place then there are pubs and restaurants that are more than happy to accommodate you. Western style pubs allow you to enjoy a drink and great company in a great atmosphere while relaxing restaurants will allow you to enjoy a drink after a meal. Some pubs in Patong have live bands playing covers of western hits all night long. For something a little different, you could have a drink while taking in a Muay Thai fight as boxing matches are organised for the pleasure of on looking holiday makers.
If you have children with you then you will still find plenty to keep you entertained. Hotels will often lay on their own entertainment to keep young and old busy in the evenings. Just outside of Patong itself you will find colourful and highly entertaining cabaret shows that will be enjoyed by people of all ages. If you are looking for something to do in the evening then you will be spoilt for choice and any good hotel or tour organiser should be able to let you know what there is to do and see.
If you are hoping for a holiday where you can relax or be active in the daytime and then retire early in the evening, Patong makes the ideal destination. If you are looking for somewhere where you can party all night, every night, Patong will be a great destination for you also.
