Patong Beach is the most popular beach in Phuket. it is similar with Bali. The street food, the restaurant along the beach, the shop, the resort n the atmosphere. N the worse thing is the traffic is exactly same.
Bangla Road is the main street in Patong. Especially for the nighlife.
Actually there beaches is 1 stright line from Kata, Karon n end by Patong Beach.
But for me Bali's beach more beautiful than here.
