Activities and Attractions
Right at the heart of Patong Beach Central, the resort is the perfect base from which to explore Phuket’s many attractions.
Phuket Town is a testament to the island’s historical soul. Wander down streets displaying Sino-Portuguese architecture, chill in an artsy coffee shop, visit eccentric galleries and tiptoe about serene Chinese-Taoist shrines.
Patong Beach is the centre of all nightlife in Phuket, filled with fun bars, raucous pubs and lively clubs. Some pubs offer bar sports, from the ridiculous (banging a nail into a log with a hammer), to the usual (pool or darts), to the sedate (backgammon).
This long, gently curving shoreline is a popular spot for picnicking in the shade of casuarina trees. There are sports such as kitesurfing and lots of stalls offering snacks, drinks and massages.
Visit Phuket Town’s Chao Fah Variety Market and Phuket Square for souvenirs, handicrafts, accessories, inexpensive clothing and trinkets. Patong Beach Road and Bangla Road are also good for bargain-hunting, especially in the evenings. Small markets throughout the island sell local produce, chilli pastes and spices.
Simon Cabaret (www.phuket-simoncabaret.com) is a professionally staged show featuring katooey or ladyboy performers – all extremely talented and beautiful. The aim here is fun and entertainment through song and dance of the lip-synching variety. Extravagant costumes and intricate sets take the show to another level.
The largest and most well-known of Phuket’s temples (www.wat-chalong-phuket.com) is especially revered because it houses a splinter of bone believed to be from Buddha himself. Admire intricate architecture and religious statues covered in gold leaf. The peace and calm is occasionally disturbed by the lighting of firecrackers, a gesture of gratitude for answered prayers.
