  • So crowded I didn’t last for 5 minutes here, that has absolutely nothing to do with the original thailand. The tourist just made that to anhorrible unenjoyable place  more »
  • I would have given the beach full marks because it is so central and the lovely food stalls all along the beach, but the only thing kept me back is the noise of the traffic from the street. Well, you ...  more »

  • I'm going to write about the beach Overall it is fairly clean and the water is clear The beach is quite in the morning and slowly gets busier after lunch. The beach can be very crowded so try and go early in the day to get a good spot if you want to lay in the sun or shade. When the beach is full of people, the street vendors will start trying to sell basically everything and anything to you from sunblock, umbrellas, drinks, clothes to water sport activities, Therefore it can be so stressful in order to relax properly!
  • This is the queen beach of Phuket. The beach is beautiful and clean. Authorities doesn't allow smoking on the beach although they have designated places for it. This is also the most commercially viable place and you will find high end hotels and restaurants here. The famous and notories Bangla Street is also there.
  • Phuket is the largest island of Thailand. Is a nice place. Patong beach, Karon beach, kata beach are nice places to relax. Must visit to Buddha Temples they have spectacular architecture.
  • Could keep the beach cleaner. Water rides are amazing. Very helpful and friendly water sports agents.
  • It is a nice beach to check out, although lots of reviewers will say its busy. It is pretty clean, water looks good, but there are waves. The hawkers on that beach are alright (not as aggressive as other places I've been to). Its fun to walk, and its clean. Must visit!
