“Phuket patong or karon and must do things”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014 via mobile

Indian point of view for first time visitors from india to Phuket

Tips
Stay in patong and not karon
Patong is very lively , karon is very quiet, no choice for Indian food. Night lyf is zero. Every thing closes by 10-10.30 pm.

Rent a bike, take your Indian driving along with you from India.

Choose phang nga tour over phi phi.
And dont be lazy. It is a must do thing. Amazing...

Take a full day city tour

Watch fantasea show

Remember to take veg food along with you if you r vegetarian , if you go to any tour.

Dont book tickets for tours or shows directly from hotel or website. Go to a local tour company and bargain. There are some burmese agents who speak hindi and give good price . All tours include hotel pickup and drop.

Take lunch/ dinner options rather than only ticket without any buffet.

Choose hotel between
Holiday inn resort
Horizon beach resort
Banthai
Millineum resort
Novotel platinum
Novotel resort ( little far)
Patong beach resort
Phuket graceland

Taxi or tuk tuk charges are very very high here.
Bring maggi / noodles packs and namkeen packets along.

“Patong Beach too busy!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

Patong Beach too busy! If you are wanting a beach holiday better to go to Karon or Kata or the beaches further north from Patong

“Good surf, nice beach.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

It was nice to visit a genuine surf beach aster hanging out in Pattaya for so long. The water was just right; clear and cool and the surf was just rough enough t make it interesting. The rip was overrated and not dangerous. Great for a work-out.

“It's nice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

Too bad the surf was so rough - we couldn't go swimming as the red flags were flying so instead we shopped and ate and walked along the beach

“Relaxing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

you could rent a beach chair to sit whole day. Parasailing is a tad pricey but its worth for the experience. Do parasailing in the early afternoon.
