Shop til' you drop
Prepare for the ultimate shopping expedition at nearby Jungceylon Shopping Centre, a sprawling mall brimming with upmarket boutiques, department stores and restaurants. With entertainment galore, you should ensure you have time to spare to visit the Strike Bowling alley, the cinema or the exciting XD Theatre.
As the sun begins to set, wander to The Port, an open-air water feature with a large Junk ship and daily fountain show; a vibrant display the whole family can enjoy. Behind the ship is the Full Moon Brew Work, serving a selection of handcrafted beers, and those looking for a unique experience can visit the rooftop nightclub that boasts a glass-bottom pool.
Business by day, party by night
During the day, Bangla Road is a quiet strip with a few market stalls, but by night the entire street transforms into a vibrant party scene, bursting with lively clubs and outdoor bars. As one of Patong’s most famous attractions, it’s easy to see why tourists flock from all over the globe just to witness the pulsating nightlife of Bangla Road.
While strolling along the street, you might fancy stopping in for a drink at Tiger, a vivid nightclub that encompasses over 24 themed bars, as well as live music, DJs and entertainment. On the other end of the scale is Gonzo, a relatively quiet club with less than 12 bars, and which is home to the popular Aussie Bar.
