Nightlife

Phuket has a busy night life and is one of the main attractions of the island.

There are a lot of places to party after a relazing day at the beach, including lively Thai style nightclubs with live bands, Western discos playing dance music, small beachside bars, pubs and go-go clubs full of friendly

In general the nightlife in Phuket is concentrated around the tourist beaches of Patong, Kata/Karon and Rawai, as well as Phuket City.

Patong nightlife
The center of Phuket night life is Patong beach, with Bangla Road being the main street. There are a number of arcades of tiny bars packed right next to one another, as well as several large western style nightclubs. Soi Seadragon has the majority of the go-go bars, while Soi Eric, Soi Tiger and Soi Crocodile are among the most popular stribs. Safari Bar on the outskirts of Patong is the main after-hours venue.

Kata and Karon nightlife
The Kata/Karon area is a smaller and more quiet version of Patong and attracts more to Scandinavian visitors. There are a few bar lanes located there, but no large discos. Rawai, on the southern tip of the island, is a lazy beach town during the day, but has plenty going on after dark. Rawai beach is lined with a number of small and medium sized bars and many of them tend to bend the rules regarding closing times.

Phuket Town nightlife
The night life in Phuket Town are dominated by Thai style nightclubs scattered all over the one-way streets that make up old town Phuket. These places are lively affairs, packed with Thais and resident foreigners. They usually feature live bands playing a mix of western covers and traditional and Thai music.

Family oriented activities
Phuket night life also offers a number of more family oriented activities. Central Festival Walk and Jung Ceylon feature English language cinemas showing major western films. There are two mini-golf courses on the island, three bowling alleys, a go-karting track and a shooting range. The Green Man British Pub near Kata and Rawai hosts a Thursday night pub quiz and there are live jazz jams every Wednesday night at Music Matter - a little jazz joint found in Phuket Town.
