Patong Beach

Patong Beach, Thailand

Patong Beach is famous for its nightlife and 3.5 kilometres (2.2 mi) beach that runs the entire length of Patong’s west side. Nightlife is centered in two main areas, Bangla Road and the "Paradise Complex", with Bangla Road being predominantly straight and Paradise Complex gay. Both are lined with many bars, discotheques and go go bars. Prostitution in Thailand is illegal, but tolerated, as is the case in Patong. Some discos in Patong charge a 200 baht admission fee, but rather than being a cover charge, this is partly a drink minimum since you get a voucher for one drink and most clubs charge 150 baht for almost all drinks.
