Things To Do & Places To Visit in Patong

With Patong as your base camp, there are things to do and see that will satisfy everyone in your family, regardless of interests.

For example, for history buffs and anyone interested in Thai culture, a visit to the Two Heroines Monument and the Thalang National Museum is a must, where one can explore the rich history of the island dating back hundreds of years.

Getting Close to Nature

For outdoor enthusiasts who want jungle fun away from the sandy beaches, there is the Khoa Phra Wildlife Wildlife Park, where you can wander for hours through virgin forests and perhaps glimpse some of the island’s most exotic of creatures.

Worshipping the Sun

And for daytime beach fun, the possibilities are endless in Patong and surrounds. Squeaky clean white sand beaches and coral reefs offer all the summer fun imaginable, with year round snorkeling, windsurfing, sailing and diving, as well as many an isolated spot or two along the 3 kilometer-long beach, where you can sit back with a paperback and just enjoy a simple sunbath – or even an informal Thai beach massage!

Sunset and Beyond

Chao Nam (Sea Gypsy) Setting Adrift Boats Ceremony

Twice annually, before monsoon and after

In the middle of the 6th and 11th month of each year, the sea gypsies of Phuket celebrate for 3 days in dance (Rahm Rong Ngeng), drink, and boat making. An elaborate boat called a “prahu” is built that contains clippings of hair, small doll effigies and other personal effects, and then is set adrift by the gypsies in hopes of driving away all suffering and sorrow. The sea gypsy villages in Rawai and Sapam hold their ceremonies on the 13th, Koh Sirey celebrates this festival on the 14th, and Lam Lah on the 15th.
