Patong (หาดป่าตอง Hat Patong) is the largest beach resort on the island of Phuket. Patong is a party capital of Asia, with famous nightlife and a great beach. This article also includes Kalim, a series of small beaches just north of Patong.
Mostly made up of hotels, world-class restaurants, nightclubs and various tourist attractions, this is a hedonists' heaven, with numerous entertainment complexes and countless bars clustered together in and around Bangla Rd and Beach Rd. The town has a very obvious female, transgender, and male sex industry to cater to every taste, however to only view it as this is a mistake, it offers so much more, for families and couples too.
