Patong Beach is Phuket’s most famous place for nightlife. There are tons of fun things to do throughout both day and night in this beach town. Everyone is familiar with Bangla Road for parties and drinks, a bustling nightlife full of fun. But there are tons of adventures to check out at the Andaman Sea as well. Water sports and activities will keep you busy from the time the sun comes out until it comes out again the next day! Whether you came to relax, eat, shop, or party, there are activities that anyone can enjoy individually and in a group. Here are some, just to name a few:
There’s a whole ocean out there right in front of you, so you might as well take advantage of it. The warm, tropical weather of Thailand is absolutely perfect for water sports! Patong Beach is a great place for jet skiing, snorkeling, and scuba diving. There are so many ways you can enjoy the beautiful beach. If you’re not looking to do anything but relax, the warm sand and beach chairs with umbrellas are always an option.
If you decide to venture out into the sea, be sure that you find a driver or instructor that is certified and trained to take you. If you’re getting a jet ski, just be sure to stay cautious and wear your safety gear. Patong Bay has some intimate, smaller beaches with snorkeling locations that can be easily reached if you want to explore the marine life. Check out the colorful fish swimming along the coral. You will want to make sure that your guide preps you with all the needed safety equipment as well as information on how to use it correctly. They should be able to make sure that you’re getting the experience you want.
Aqua Zone Water Park
Patong Beach also has an action-packed, exciting aquatic playground near the Garden Resort. This water park stretches across 150 square meters of sea with trampolines, paddle vessels, icebergs, and more! The area is blocked off from access by jet skis or boats. This can be great fun for a group of friends, your family, or just for a day trip for some fun alone time. Solo water-parking is totally recommended!
This one is for those of you who turn on their relaxation mode once they are on vacation. While everyone else is outside jet skiing, maybe this is more up to your speed. Get out the of hot sun and have a day just to rest in the nice, cool air with a relaxing body massage. Whether you want to just get a foot massage or have a full-body oil massage, you will have a nice time laying around. In fact, you might even get a nap in!
There are many options, and massage parlors can be spotted everywhere that you go. Try to find one that has certification and go for the elderly women – they’re the ones with tons of experience behind them! It might be a little bit rough for first-timers, but that’s when you learn to say “bao bao” to ask them to ease up a little bit since you’re a newbie!
Muay Thai Fighting
Right on Sai Namyen Road, you’ll find Patong’s Muay Thai Stadium with professional, experienced coaches and trainers. If you’re feeling adventurous and want to take a day to learn a little bit of Muay Thai, go for it! This Muay Thai gym will also hold regular fights for an audience to come to watch. It’s quite exciting and can make for a great night out with beers!
