PATONG NIGHTLIFE STARTS AT THE BANGLA WALKING STREET
If you’re in Phuket for the nightlife scene, then Bangla Walking Street has you covered. The road closes to traffic at 6 pm and turns into a busy walking street. Expect crazy lights, sounds, and lots of touts trying to pull you into their bars. Avoid following the touts and do your research to find live music bars, restaurants, nightclubs and rooftop bars before your visit to Phuket. On that note about parties, partying on luxury boats during the day is another great thing to do if you want to be out on the sea in a beautiful boat.
You’ll also encounter some beautiful katoeys (ladyboys) along this street. If you want to take a photo with them, expect to tip afterwards.
