Top 8 BEST Activities in Patong Phuket

September 1, 2022

One of the most well-known tourist destinations in the region with views of the Andaman Sea on the west coast is Patong, a beach resort city not far from Phuket.

Every year, a lot of tourists go to Patong, which is generally renowned for its long beach. This is understandable given that Patong offers a variety of activities, including vibrant nightlife, beaches, and delicious southern cuisine that has drawn visitors for years.

Where to stay in Patong

Grand Mercure Patong Phuket

Close to Patong’s nightlife and the Andaman Sea, the Grand Mercure Phuket Patong is a quiet retreat built on the storied Thai hospitality heritage. Each visitor’s experience is enriched by the tales presented within these walls, which engage the intellect and fascinate the senses.

The hotel has 314 rooms, including 10 one-bedroom pool villas and 4 two-bedroom pool villas, in addition to 252 Superior Rooms, 38 Deluxe Pool Access Rooms, 8 Superior Suites, and 2 Deluxe Suites. The resort is perfect for young tourists, families, and groups of friends wishing to spend time together in the middle of Patong.

During my trip to Patong I stayed at the property and I had a truly amazing stay. My room had direct access to the pool and the property is perfect to explore the area. You can easily access the main shopping areas and the beach is less than 10 minutes away.

I have also had the chance to experience the Spa for a traditional Thai massage which was a great way to recover from the long trip from Europe.

Every week they have a delicious Seafood buffet that I enjoyed with some friends, and we all loved the experience. From fresh seafood to delicious Thai cuisine, you have it all.
