What Phuket Town doesn’t have, however, is a beach. The most popular beach destination in Phuket is Patong, which is on the west coast of Phuket only 14 km from Phuket Town. A direct shared taxi service to Patong departs frequently from Phuket Bus Terminal 1. Patong is a long narrow town which stretches the length of the beach.

About halfway up the beach is Patong’s infamous Walking Street, which features large numbers of Go Go Bars. The beach front road and most other parts of Patong are much more family friendly. The prices charged by hotels and restaurants varies a lot depending upon how close they located to the beach front, with establishments located to the back of the town offering generally the best value.
